Jul 10, 2018 - Travel to Debert, NS

July 10 – Travel to Debert, NS For dinner, our host made a hobo stew from cans of vegetables that each of the travel folks offered, a bottle of V8 and some beef chunks. It was very tasty. After our stew dinner, there was a communal birthday celebration for those of us who had birthdays during the 30-day caravan.

Jul 8, 2018 - Sunday at Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia

We worshipped with the Christians at the Mill Village church near Shubenacadie, NS. They are a group of about 16 or so adults and several children. Ray Fisher splits his time between them and Kentville, NS. We found them to be a very warm group of people diligently seeking God. This congregation has been in the area since the 1870’s. It started with brothers from South Carolina. One of the members asked if we were aware of the developing storm coming up the east coast of the US and its threat to the Maritime Provinces. NO WE WERE NOT...

Jul 7, 2018 - Driving to Glenholme, Nova Scotia

The strong gusty winds continued through the night. We pulled in one of the slides because the awning cover was billowing. During the night we could feel the camper shake with the wind. It was unnerving. We awoke to the same conditions. It was difficult to maintain a stance against the wind. These conditions made us glad to be leaving. We departed about 9:30. It took only an hour to reach the Confederation Bridge. We stopped to do some shopping at Gateway Village on the PEI side of the bridge. Behind the village is a road to Borden Point...

Jun 26, 2015 - Elm River, Nova Scotia, Canada

At Elm River we fixed dinner for everybody, we had Jambalaya. Everybody also had the opportunity to see the tidal bore. That is where the tide comes in as a wave and some people actually surf on it. We didn't go. To get here we had to cross the Confederation Bridge and the toll was $60.50 CAD.

Aug 22, 2014 - Bore Tide at Truro

It was about 67 degrees with heavy cloud cover as we headed to the Truro bore tide viewing area. We were joined by a couple of dozen other viewers. At about 11:12 we spotted the first wave coming around the bend. It developed into a modest curl that reversed the flow of the river as it progressed past us. It was interesting to see and hear other people’s reactions. An elderly couple was inattentive and as facing the wrong direction; I think I startled them when I told them, “There’s a good view of it!” I didn’t want them to miss it. As an...

Aug 21, 2014 - Missed It

We drove out to Maitland to view the tidal bore and found that we had missed it. The table we were given was for a different viewpoint. We learned more at the Interpretive Center and planned to try again tomorrow. The Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition is underway and we spent most of the day there. It's more the size of the Lake County Fair rather than the State Fair, but more true to agriculture than Lake County is these days. We watched various horse riding competitions, most with just a few participants. We visited the commercial...

Aug 20, 2014 - Driving around the Shore

We took 101, the Harvest Highway, east. The Annapolis Royal region dates to 1605. We crossed a spot noted to be halfway between the equator and the North Pole. Having exited 101 too early, we got back on, took another wrong turn into a 25 minute loop, and finally onto 215. (For the uninitiated, you don't just turn around on a country road if you a towing a 33 foot fifth wheel.) There were lots of No Fracking signs and not enough highway signs. It was 76 degrees at 1:00. We stopped at Cheverie to walk on the Minas Basin, about two hours...

Jul 4, 2014 - Debert. Nova Scotia

Poor internet tonight so no pictures or anything, but we did have a great day. We are watching the approach of Hurricane Arthur as we move toward North Sydney and the ferry to Newfoundland.Elm River Campground The Elm River Campground is about 100 kms east of the New Brunswick border on the Trans Canada Highway at exit 12. It is in Debert, Nova Scotia. It was one of the few campgrounds in the area that was rated well and was also big rig friendly. It is a friendly campground with open grass sites. The only disadvantage of grass sites is the...

Jun 30, 2013 - On to Nova Scotia

We only spent one night here. Most of us stopped at a big shopping center to restock. The campground is actually in Glenholme, but that doesn't show on the map. It has been another yucky day regarding weather and that is bringing the bugs out in droves. I need to wear netting from head to toes. The group was treated to a steak dinner tonight with all the fixings and boy, was it good. Steaks cooked to order, 3 kinds of salads, beans, wine and cake for dessert. Yum! Once everything was cleaned up and we were back in our rigs,and darkness...

Aug 10, 2010 - Province #9, Nova Scotia!

This area is about as close to the Four Corners area of the USA as you can get in Canada, not in topography or climate, but in the fact that you can hit 3 provinces in less then 90 minutes! We left our KOA campsite in Cornwall PEI shortly before 10:00, crossed the Confederation Bridge into New Brunswick, and in about an hour we were stopped at the Welcome To Nova Scotia Info Centre. After picking up all the propaganda we could carry it was back in the truck and down the road to the Elm River Campground near Debert for one night.
