Sep 1, 2017 - the European portion of our Maritime adventure?
Yikes, September already?? Blue skies this morning and the sun soon chased away the overnight chill. After a stroll around the Bridgewater riverside downtown, with its old buildings and lovely waterfront park, we headed down the inlet to LeHave, with its general store and bakery. Houses on this side of the inlet didn’t quite match those on the opposite shore but still a wonderful setting. There was a crowd at the store and we soon learned why. The baked goods looked delish’ and the cozy seating area was so inviting with its antique décor in...Jump to full entry
Aug 31, 2017 - tree trimming 101
A little fun today as we hooked up the trailer to leave Shubie Campground after overnight rains. As we were facing uphill on wet grass the back tires spun almost as soon as we hit the power. Undaunted we decided to back out but had to cut it hard to avoid overhanging tree branches. At one point while Wayne drove the truck slowly backward Donna was on top of the trailer ladder moving branches away from the roof. We had to do some light tree pruning but eventually slid past and got to solid ground. It was not the most elegant departure but we...Jump to full entry
Aug 28, 2009 - Bridgewater, NS - Fun Day In Lunenburg
(Ron Writing) It got down to the high 40’s last night and, for the first time in weeks, we ran the heater for awhile after we awoke. But before long the sun warmed things up and we enjoyed another gorgeous day. We walked across the street to take a look at the three churches this morning. Two of them were open for visitors so we got to see the inside of those and visit with the friendly attendants. The Anglican church is the most elegant and unique of the three. We took a few photos on the inside showing the beautiful woodwork and stained...Jump to full entry
Sep 19, 2006 - Halifax to Peggys Cove and on to Bridgewater Nova Scotia
Sept. 19/06 Today we went to the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. It endures as a proud museum to Canada's military heritage and passage to nationhood. This is a must see when in Halifax!! It is a double walled fortification, with a ditch between the walls. It was carved out of the highest hill in the city of Halifax. This construction keep the walls out of sight from any enemies, rather than being erected as a fortres. It was built to defend Halifax from a possible land invasion, unfortunately it was obsolete by the time it was...Jump to full entry
May 7, 2006 - Home - again!
We're back home and making the transition from being mobile to settled. The weather makes me wish we were back on the road!! But we are so glad to be with our family and friends again. We had a great winter! We covered almost 9000 miles, and burned more fuel and took more pictures than we like to admit, on a route that took us from seaside to mountains, from the Atlantic ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, travelling in 4 provinces and 12 states plus our forays into Mexico. Along the way, we made new friends and visited old ones, and appreciated...Jump to full entry
Oct 3, 2005 - On our way!
Day 1, October 3 - LaHave, NS to Fredericton NB It's time to leave! This year we are doing something different - instead of cruising the Bahamas in our trawler we will cruise the highways in our motorhome. Mike is pleased with the change, I am reserving judgement - I love the cruising life! Will we miss the camaraderie, the snorkeling, the dinghy runs, the beach parties? So, along with our travelogue we will be looking for the other side of 'cruising' - when we stop and park, what happens then? It is chilly but sunny when we pulled out of...Jump to full entry
