Jun 4, 2017 - checking out Shediac

A quiet start this morning as we did a little housecleaning and attacked our mountain of laundry before walking uptown to peruse the Shediac Farmers Market. It was bustling with lots of potential customers checking out the many arts and crafts stalls or sampling some of the various food vendors. We always look more carefully at these food vendors since hearing about our friend Joanne’s adventures helping her sister run a food truck on the rodeo circuit last year. Donna is convinced it would be great fun so who knows, maybe you will see her...

Jun 2, 2017 - dunes & boardwalks

Our mosquito free campsite turned out to be a great spot after all that running around. As a result we will be endeavouring to stay at places close to the water despite the possibility of being exposed to hurricane force winds! We may have to hang on to our hats when we go outside but we won’t have to lather up with deet and all those nasty chemicals! We have had very good weather on this trip so far. A little cool but almost no rain. However this morning the rain was pelting down while we hooked up the trailer as we got ready to move...

Aug 15, 2013 - Sussex (NB) to Pointe du Chêne (NB)

I awoke at my usual 4:30 am and, since there had been a decision to delay breakfast until 7:00 am, I made my own and left the campsite at 6:00 am. The route had us taking side roads to Petitcodiac, then Highway 106 through River Glade to Salisbury, then Highway 112 to Riverview. From there we crossed the Petitcodiac River and took side streets through Moncton (the largest city in New Brunswick), then Highway 134 and 133 to Shediac, close to which Pointe-du-Chêne is located. The route to Salisbury was quite hilly and road surfaces were poor,...

Aug 14, 2013 - Shediac, New Brunswick

Arrived: Shediac, New Brunswick Departed: Prince Edward Island We left Woodstock with the normal cloudy weather we have been in most of the time. It rained a lot last night but we were tucked in dry and as Ray says “at least it is a warm rain”. The sun was actually shining when we arrived in Shediac. Shediac is a resort town located near Moncton and on the shores of Northumberland Straight. We are staying at a Provincial Campsite called Parlee Beach. The campsite is about a 10 minute walk down to the ocean. The beach is located in a large...

Aug 22, 2012 - Cabot Trail & PEI

Monday we traveled the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We left Baddeck, NS in the rain and had rain and fog for the first half of the trail. We drove the loop counter-clockwise. Along the Trail we stopped at Wreck Cove General Store for coffee and a leg stretch. This store was in the middle of nowhere! I asked the storekeeper where they had to shop for food and supplies; they do full day trips to Sidney, NS, eating lunch and dinner out and go with a long list. He told how he loves living in the wilderness as there was so much to do...

Jul 21, 2012 - Shediac, New Brunswick

Fred was tired so I ran some errands today. Fred needed an Allen wrench to fix the handle for the TV antenna. So I went to the local Home Depot type store and got a set and then went to Costco. Found a few different things there. No wine, in New Brunswick they have liquor stores. Found some good pates and the meats looked better than home. Then I drove up the coast and visited Shediac. It is a darling little beach town. Lots of little cute shops. I lucked out, it was parks day in NB and entrance to the Provincial Beach Park was free. It was...

Aug 23, 2011 - Back to Shediac

Shediac, New Brunswick, Sunday Aug 22nd We were supposed to be in Moncton at 5:30 am to pick up Brian and continue on to Sydney, Nova Scotia where we would board the ferry to Newfoundland. Guess where we are? That’s right, stuck here in Shediac with a broken down MH. Poor Brian did not get our phone message so he woke early to wait for us and we never made it. Because we got into Shediac late Saturday afternoon we had to act fast before everything closed, Andy networked with everyone he could and arranged to have a mechanic come by the...

Canada & USA Journey

Aug 5, 2011 - Day 25: Acadian Coastal Drive – Part 2

Our morning breakfast was bacon and pancakes with some of the delicious maple syrup we got in Kedgwick. Ralph said they were the best pancakes I’ve made, but I think he was just hungry! LOL After leaving Carraquet, we drove down Highway 11 toward Tracadie-Shelia to see the leprosium museum. Leprosy is something I associate with Biblical times so I was intrigued to see what this was about. It seems that the area housed the leprosy hospital from the 1890’s to 1965! Surprised? I sure was. The museum housed artifacts from the hospital that once...

Jul 15, 2011 - Bathurst, Shediac

As noted on the 9th we headed to Bathurst NB. We drove around town a bit and did some shopping at Wal-Mart since we were parked there over-night anyway. We are now 4 hours difference from home (Atlantic time). The roads so far in New Brunswick are beautiful. Real exits, divided highways and smooth sailing. A nice change from the rest of the country! We arrived in Shediac and unhitched the car at the Info Centre and went to look for a campground. We had found one that we thought would be good in the Woodalls book and also on line. But you...
