Sep 11, 2011 - Digby Nova Scotia Canada

Don't ever forget what 9/11 means…...Drove to Digby, a beautiful fishing village on the Bay of Fundy. We are staying at the Digby Campground RV park on a hill overlooking part of the harbour area of Digby. After we setup our RV, we drove to Bear River, a small community on the Bear River, some of the stores are on stilts, as you can see. We walked the town and there was a local market highlighting local artisans and various merchants with their particular wares. We found Sledding Hill, local merchants Gordon & Martin who have some very...

Aug 17, 2011 - Day 37: On to Digby

Day 37 Today was a late start since we showered and broke camp. Breaking camp is an interesting experience: • Ralph disconnects water and electricity while I take out the trash and close the slideout. • Then we connect the truck and the camper. • The holding tank is next; drive to the dump station, hook up the hose, and empty the waste. • Then we’re ready to go. Our drive today took us through the Annapolis Valley (don’t know why it’s called that) which consisted of lots of farms. We saw silage (corn grown for animals), soybeans (I think),...

Aug 15, 2011 - Shelburne, NS to Digby, NS 130 miles

We hated to leave our perfect campsite on Shelburne Bay, but something was causing our allergies to flare up. We both left w/sinus headaches, my eyes almost swollen shut. We drove the Evangeline Trail to Digby, NS. This is one of my Mother’s favorite things she saw here in Nova Scotia. I now understand why - mile after mile of beautiful farmland that rolls straight to the ocean. There were many beautiful churches along the way also. We got a picture of the tallest wooden church in the world. We drove to Prim Point Lighthouse in Digby but...

Aug 11, 2011 - Ferry to Digby, NS

We are in Nova Scotia! The four of us have been talking/planning this for a year! And here we are! After costing out driving up and around the Bay of Fundy into Nova Scotia which would take a few days, plus the fuel to drive it, plus the campground costs, we all decided to go the ferry route. Cost: $400 for a 40 ft. motorhome towing a vehicle. Now that we've done it, was it worth it? YES. It left Saint John at Noon and arrived in Digby at 3pm. We sat in the cafe/lounge which had a restaurant. There was another restaurant on the deck below...

Aug 11, 2011 - Not the first but not the last

So to start with my side of the story, I have been doing most of my major traveling since I graduated high school in 2009. I am now almost 20 years old, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon! My travels have turned into a life time accomplishment. One that I know I'll never completely finish. When I had graduated from Terry Fox Secondary school, I was a very disorganized person. I was so frustrated with myself for not having enough direction in my life. My fellow scholars were all heading in there known directions, weather it be school,...

Aug 9, 2010 - arriving at Nova Scotia

Greetings, We were hoping to enjoy the scenery on our way over the ferry to Nova Scotia but the fog was very dense. For two days now we have been enveloped with thick fog and burst of heavy rains. This does put a damper in our sightseeing. The second day in Digby, Nova Scotia turned out very pleasant. The downtown was a small fishing village with seafood restaurants and the specialty being scallions. After having our generator repaired we will move on down the Fundy Shores heading to the South Shore. Third day we traveled Route # 103...

Jul 22, 2010 - Digby, NS - Digby Campground

We had a very nice 92 mile trip from Grand Pré to Digby, NS. It was one of the best roads we have been on and it only took almost two hours to make the trip. It would have been less but for about 10-15 minutes spent stopped for construction. We are staying at Digby Campground where we have full hookups with 30 amps, temperamental WiFi, good cell coverage and good satellite once I found a way around the tree. The sites are a little small but adequate and similar to most RV parks up here. After setting up, we went into town and had lunch and...

Jul 6, 2010 - Tidal Generating Station, Annapolis Royal and Habitation

ANNAPOLIS TIDAL GENERATING PLANT: After some catch-up e-mail and journal work, we begin our sightseeing Tuesday with a trip to the nearby Nova Scotia Power Annapolis Tidal Generating Plant (the only one in the western hemisphere and one of four in the world), and it was established as an experiment in 1984. It contains a 22-foot diameter rotor that turns as the gates are lifted to let the water out that the high tide has brought into the area. The site was selected because the government had built a causeway and bridge, partially blocking...

Jul 5, 2010 - Watching Whales and Balance Rock

WESTPORT HISTORY: Monday we have booked a 1:00 p.m. zodiac whale-watching trip out of Brier Island, about 56 miles and two ferry-rides away. We drive past Digby along the Diggby Neck and Islands Scenic Drive (over 30 minutes) to the East Ferry to Tiverton on Long Island, managing to be the next-to-last car on the ferry. It's another about 15 minute drive (7 miles) to the Ferry to Brier Island, again just getting on. With all our good fortune on the ferries, we check in for the tour by 11:00 so have time to enjoy a walk along the wharf and...

Jul 4, 2010 - On to the Bay of Fundy and Annapolis Coast

SCENIC ROUTE TO ANNAPOLIS COAST: We have a long day Saturday as we want to take the scenic route to the Annapolis coast, and must stop at Canadian Tire to seek some jury-rig parts for our water connection—but this does not take long and we are soon enjoying the views (but not the road) along the Minas Basin through small towns of Maitland, Noel and Windsor (part of the Gloosgap Trail). After a couple of hours of the good views/bad road, we decide to conclude the trip via the much better Highway 101 and reach our campground (the Cove...

Jul 2, 2010 - Two Oops: Still More Lessons Learned

OOPS—ANOTHER SMALL FLOOD: I wake up about one am Friday morning and step into a flooded bathroom. Someone (not me, but we won’t go into who) AGAIN managed to forget to pull up on the foot pedal to stop the water flow, so the toilet flooded. Good news—it’s clean water; bad news—we are slightly downhill so it’s flooding into the carpet in the bedroom. We spend two hours sopping up all we can with every towel we have, supplemented by t-shirts already in the laundry, but neither of us gets testy—I think we are both a bit surprised, but one...
