Sep 19, 2008 - Day 110

Day 110, Sept 18, Today’s Plan; Visit St. Stephen, then prep for Stateside. The day starts cloudy and cool. By the time we get going, the sky is clearing, but it remains cool with a north wind. The trip to St. Stephen is quicker than we thought it would be. We haven’t quite got used to the smaller province’s maps and the distance relationship. Today we are looking for two covered bridges near St. Stephen. One we find right away. The other is elusive and remains hidden. We thought we would be done sooner. We drive into St. Stephen and get...

Sep 12, 2008 - Oak Bay, New Brunswick

Oak Bay Campground is a deteriorating campground that will probably just get worse with winter. It is situated between St. Stephen and St. Andrews by the sea in New Brunswick. St. Stephen is on the Canada-Maine border. There we toured the Chocolate Museum housed in the original factory of Ganong chocolates. I now have a much greater appreciation for what it takes to make a good piece of chocolate. St. Andrews is a pretty resort town near Campobello Island -- FDR's boyhood home and presidential retreat. St. Andrew's is on Fundy Bay. The...

Oct 5, 2006 - Fredericton to St. Stephen

Oct. 4/06 This morning Clark took all of us over to the City Hall to meet the Mayor, Brad Woodside, who presented us with a nice book on Fredericton. A nice souvenir. After lunch Clark took the us out to the Y Camp that they use for the Deaf kids and other groups. It is quite rustic but very functional in a beautiful setting beside the lake. The Kilburn families also have their own camps out there. The camps have been in their family for years. Tonight we went to the Elks Lodge meeting, where Bill is doing his Official visit. Oct. 5/06...

Well we did get an early start and the drive down to Freeport was uneventful except the usual pothole dodge game. The road wins more often than I like. We arrived at the LL Bean RV parking area and secured a great parking space. I am anxious to get to the store because they have a kayak excursion that I wanted to check out. We drove the car up to the store and found a perfect parking space in the middle of everything. We went direct to the excursion desk and found that the next group going out on the water would be leaving in about an hour....

It's Thursday June 15th and the weather is not certain. Slight rain early this morning but it has stopped by 6:30. The drive from Hermon to Calias, yesterday, was through true Maine backwoods. We went as much a 10 miles at a time without any sign of human involvement other than the road. Beautiful but spooky. Calias is nothing like I remember, just a sleepy little town. It does have a Walmart. Anne & I spent a good bit of time at the Visitor's Center Wednesday afternoon. They have an open Internet LAN, which will serve as our access for the...
