I was surprised at how quiet and unspoiled the back roads in this part of New Brunswick are..
I had expected to find an ATM en route in Memramcook to withdraw more money to purchase the new horse, but the local garage only had a mini ATM which did not accept my Nat West card. "There's a bank five minutes away" the shop attendant informed me - rather unhelpfully as she meant five minutes by car, not the hour it would take me - the trials of travelling by horse. A group of local rednecks drinking in the store were singularly unresponsive to my plight, but thankfully a French couple took pity on me and gave me a lift.
In late afternoon I arrived at Fox Creek near Moncton and decided to stop here for the night. No convenient barns (as I was concerned about mosquitoes so near the Petitcodiac river) but I found an abandoned house plastered in No Trespassing signs. The neighbours assured me they never saw anyone there, so I tethered Lady in the garden, and when the expected mosquitoes descended at dusk we both retreated to an outhouse I had scouted out ...........
..evidently an outside toilet judging by the seating on the right hand side.
