Sep 22, 2018 - Hampton wharf

I went to Hampton Wharf at 10 AM to see the high tide - to compare to the low tide yesterday afternoon. The wind was up and so more wave action. I may have been an hour too early as later it looked as if the tide table I was looking at was Eastern time not Atlantic time. Anyway - the boats were definitely up in the water the the beach was covered with water so although not dramatic the tidal action in the Bay of Fundy was evident. The drive up and over Hampton “mountain” was fun. There are low mountains on both sides of the Annapolis...

Sep 21, 2018 - Annapolis Royal and Port Royal

39 degrees this morning per the weather on the internet - first day of fall today. Should be in the mid 60’s and around 50 or less at night. Ray is putting on the Hydrohot on so we are finally using it and no problems. Great not to worry about heat as we are needing it. We drove to Port Royal which is a reconstruction of the first French settlement here in 1605. It's very interesting as they built a fortified place of wood that housed many military men and eventually missionaries and some women. Very solid constructionand is called the...

2018 Trip

Sep 20, 2018 - Bridgetown

We had a short drive to Bridgetown, no issues. Got diesel at a Big Irving and went to the truck side. The guy next to me was a Monaco Diplomat and he said he was from Yarmouth, had a lobster fishing business for many years and had just retired, had a home in Belle Glade Florida too. Said he had an American Eagle at one time and sold it - he had looked to get another but couldn’t find one in good shape that wasn’t new. We got to the campground, not much to look at but level, 50 amp, pull thru and we get Dish 129! Haven’t seen HD since...

Jun 28, 2018 - Bridgetown, Nova Scotia

June 25th It is raining like crazy this morning, no view of the Bay which is shrouded in mist! We plan to leave the park as early as we can to get to Truro to get an oil change on the van but first…..there is free WiFi at the camp office so I have decided to take advantage of that. You don’t have to be in their space but you have to get close so we park right outside the office window to access the WiFi and it works but as I have so much to upload to the site including pictures it takes about an hour. It is not ideal but it gets done. There...

Oct 4, 2011 - Bridgetown, NS

Foggy morning but sunny by the time we got to Liverpool. Liverpool CN railroad station is the home of the Hank Snow Country Music Center. Mostly memorabilia and video displays of Hank Snow and his career, but also other Nova Scotia entertainers: Carol Baker, Ann Murray, George Canyon and Aaron Prichett. On the way to Annapolis Royal we stopped at the only Tidal Generating Station in North America. We are camped for the night at Bridgetown, have a lovely spot on the Annapolis River. We drove back to nearby Digby for supper, Digby is...

On The Road 2011

Aug 12, 2011 - Bridgetown, NS

Here we are - our first stop in Nova Scotia. We camped in Bridgetown (incorporated in 1897) and took day trips from here. Dinner our first night was at the End of the Line Pub & Grill where we learned (after the fact) that an 18 oz. Stella beer was $7.25 - yikes! The owner of our campground - Ken - is the world record holder for catching a Bluefin Tuna at 1495 lbs. with a rod and reel. That must have been some rod and reel! We visited the Tidal Power Generation Station just outside Annapolis Royal. It is the only tidal generator in North...

Jul 21, 2010 - Whale Watching and Other Adventures

We arrive in Bridgetown to find a great park, right on the edge of town. We had lunch and then headed to town. We found a small visitor’s center, but the young lady there was very helpful. She directed us to Hampton Harbor, which is where the boats are aground when the tide is out. We arrived to find full tide, but a whole lot of activity going on. A group was doing a fund raiser to restore their light house. They had pre-sold 160 lobster dinners (lobster, roll, and potato salad) and were in the midst of cooking the lobster. I explained I...
