Monday August 17, 1998 - Nova Scotia

Petite Riviere - sunny hot and humid, then clouding over and raining.

The plan is to go spend some time on the South Shore at Carolyn's family's cottage, but first I have to get the oxygen sensor installed at Kelly's. I took the truck in early and went across the road to have breakfast at Stirling's while I waited. Sometime after 9 am the job was completed but shortly after driving away the Check Engine light came on again so I drove back to the garage. This time they said it was a manifold air temperature sensor, and nobody around had one available. So I drove back to Fritz and Carolyn's and started phoning around to see if the part I needed was available in Halifax. There was one at a dealership on Bedford Highway. I drove to Halifax, got the part for $50, and then set out to Bridgewater in hopes that I could find someone who could install it there.

In Bridgewater I drove across town to a GM dealership, but they sent me back to Bob's Shell, who in turn sent me to Jerry's Petrocan on the same road as the GM dealership. Fortunately Jerry was not busy and could install the sensor. He charged me $8.

With that taken care of I headed to Petite Riviere and the cabin on Green Bay. I think I arrived there around 2 pm. Carolyn was already there and we just spent the rest of the afternoon sitting on the deck or walking on the beach. We had pitas and beer for lunch. Later we walked into the Petite general store with the dogs to get a movie. On the way back it started to rain. We had a late supper, pork chops, veggies and salad, and watched the movie. I forget what it was called but it was sappy. I tried phoning Sam but he wasn't home so I went to bed. It was still raining.
