Sep 11, 2018 - Saint -Jean , Quebec to Grand Falls New Brunswick

September 11, 2018 Rained overnight and have had very dense fog and rain all day. This will be the last of our agritourism days as we will be leaving Bas-Saint-Laurent. In Pocatiere we had hoped to shop at Fromagerie Le Mouton Blanc where we found wonderful goat cheese 5 years ago. We somehow missed it but did find Boucherie Rossignol which is an artisan butcher and smokehouse. The staff could not have been more helpful although spoke no English. Somehow my French was sufficient. We bought some sausage, duck confit and duck pate. They did...

May 17, 2018 - Grand Falls

The Grand Falls are certainly spectacular & this is the perfect time of year to see them at their most turbulent. There was a huge amount of water going over them because of the Spring snow-melt. They’re right in the middle of town & I found lots of lookout points where you can see the falls & the gorge. There’s a very expensive-looking Interpretation Centre at the falls but unfortunately, it was closed. Quite frustrating & also quite stupid because I’m told by the people at the campground that the falls only run for a few weeks at this...

May 16, 2018 - Fredericton to Grand Falls

After lots of looking yesterday, I finally found a campground in Grand Falls so I didn’t have to go all the way to Quebec today. I stayed on the Trans Canada Highway (TCH) which follows the St John River most of the way but made several stops. First I stopped at a building supplies place & they gave me some 2X6 & 2X4 blocks I can use for levelling if necessary until I get the electric levellers working. From what I’ve read on Internet Forums, they’re more trouble than they’re worth & now they’ve started to act up I might just stick with the...

Aug 11, 2017 - Grand Falls, NB

Another Friday! Another sunny day! Another week! Another province! Anorther sunset! A month of travel! Are you keeping track? How many provinces? How many sunsets? Oh and how many Tim Horton's? LOL We had a relaxing drive, well actually Mel did, after Quebec City. There was a steady stream of traffic but mainly a divided highway and in one area the speed limit was 110km. Don't worry we were not doing 110 but it was like home! We have been stopping at the information centres when we get to the province borders. I must say that the one we...

Jul 23, 2015 - Grand Falls Day

So as hoped, today was a much better day. Met another helpful camper and he was an electrician from Alberta. With his help and that of the RV customer service hotline, (best customer service ever - especially since we are only renting and do not own!), We are now proud owners of a pretty nice battery charger! It's replacing the job of the inverter and everything is working fine. After a morning of working that out, we set out this afternoon to do our zip-lining activity we had planned. It was awesome!! So awesome Cole got stuck out in the...

Jul 22, 2015 - We Finally Arrived

After a 3 a.m wake up call and 1316km (13hrs) of driving we arrived at Grand Falls NB. After making that drive, I know two things. I won’t ever drive that far in one shot again, and this country of ours is definitely not flat. It’s very pretty and very different landscape out here. Driving a 36’ RV wasn’t that bad, if you don’t mind the noise (this one has lots) and using hazard lights to drive up the hills out here. They are big and they are long. Every time I wandered onto the bumper strip, I excused myself. Our first stop was in...

Aug 11, 2013 - Lac Baker (NB) to Clearview (NB)

The wind died down during the night. I awoke at 4:30 am to a beautiful starry sky. However, it was cold and dark, so I went back into my tent for another 45 minutes before packing up. Breakfast was ready by 6:00 am, so I headed off at 6:30. The recommended route had us continuing on Highway 120 past Portage-du-Lac, Caron Brook, Baker Brook, Saint-Hilaire, Venet to Edmunston. In Edmuston, we were to take Highway 144 past Saint-Basile, Rivière Verte, Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska, Saint-Leonard to Grand Falls. From there the route was along...

Jun 5, 2013 - Relative visits after Minor Incident

We made it to our first stop, Grand Falls New Brunswick. Although we stopped about half way to Grand Falls and went into the 5th wheel to make a sandwich and all was ok by the time we got to the campground and opened the 5th wheel we found one of the cupboard door had opened and 4 cups were in pieces all over the kitchen. Other than a ding in the floor and a scratch on the cupboard no other issues. Since arriving JJ have been busy visiting her family. Attached is a picture of JJ with her aunt and husband who she has not seen for several years.

Aug 20, 2012 - Day 36 - Edmundston to Grand Falls, NB

Our first very short drive, about 40 kms today. A stop to look at the canyon turned into an overnight stop so we could explore more. The Falls are apparently spectacular in the spring but now water is diverted by the dam for the power plant. This leaves the gorge open to view and it is spectacular. We spent more than an hour walking the path along the gorge and found a lovely campsite at the end so decided to fetch the RV and stay the night. There was a young couple from Ontario, with 2 daughters, tenting beside us. It reminded us a lot of...

The Wandering Nunns

Sep 26, 2011 - Grand Falls

So on Sunday morning I undertake the most frustrating drive of my life as I go to pick up Seona to get a bagel. Man I hate driving in Montreal. I leave my hotel at about 11:30 and it’s 2:00 before I’m finally leaving the city (I took another wrong turn in the process of leaving the city even). The rest of my drive is fairly long and uneventful. The Rimouski/Rivière de Loup area of Quebec is very perdy. When I get in to my hotel it turns out that it’s the same hotel that we used to stay at when we were younger whenever we went to Big Pond! I...
