In Middle River, close to the volunteer fire dept., my daughters car broke down. As they could not get cell phone reception the went looking for a phone in the fire dept. The two gentlemen in the hall immedietely contacted CAA and arranged for a tow to Cheticamp. While waiting, a couple of motorcyclists pulle in, one with a minor medical problem, the volunteers quickly treated him and he was able to continue on his way.
The driver hauled the car and the ladies to a garage in Cheticamp and made sure they got to Albert's Motel where they had reservations. The owner arranged for his wife and son to drive them to the trail and walked it with them.
The mechanic diagnosed the problem and ordered a part from Sydney. This meant an extra night and as Albert's could not accommodate them a room was booked at the Acadian Motel.
After a fine meal at the Acadian Restaurant they managed to get on the last whale tour of the day and spent an enjoyable evening on the water.
As they walked the town they soon became awarethe locals knew of their plight and were very helpful with suggestions of things to do and see.
I would like to pass on my family's thanks to the people of Cheticamp, and the volunteers in Middle River. You turned a hectic couple of days into a great visit.
