Farewell to Nova Scotia (and New Brunswick)

We were stunned to note how much nothing there is between Miramichi and Edmunston in New Brunswick. We drove several hours where we saw nothing but a few houses, and nature - no service stations or stores of any kind. Also most of highway 420 was unpaved, though not as bad as the area between Sunrise trail and the highway in Nova Scotia (at that time, a week earlier, the GPS said to use an unpaved road. That road got worse the farther we got from the paved road, and then the GPS lost satellites and I took a wrong turn onto a logging road where we could often hear rocks hitting the bottom of the car. Amazing the car didn't seem to have any damage from that.)
To get to the Saguenay and my dad's place sooner we were going to take the Riviere du Loup ferry across the saint lawrence, but it had just left so waiting for the next one would have saved us half an hour compared to driving via Quebec and would have cost $70. No deal.
