Sep 8, 2012 - Traversing Nova Scotia

Day 27, Sept. 8, 2012, Traversing Nova Scotia (4 photos) Left Lunenburg this morning; encountered fog along the coast. Continued to follow the scenic coastal road as far as Liverpool, which is on the banks of the Mersey River. What could be the origin of the town and river names? In Liverpool Sue went to a fantastic exhibit of art quilts; described by her as being “out of the box.” At the recommendation of a local at the exhibit, had lunch (actually a weekend brunch) at a place reminiscent of an English country inn; in keeping with the...

Sep 2, 2012 - Day 49 - to Liverpool, NS

On the road again, all systems go for a change. We stopped at Lunenburg to see the Bluenose II but it was in drydock. We saw it but no masts. It is a really pretty town but not very nice for a motorhome. We may come back to explore more later but today priority is to get closer to Shelburne. We camped at Fisherman's Cove in Hunts Point south of Liverpool. There is a lovely beach and wharf across the highway. I have spent this evening updating the last week of journal because we finally have dependable internet. It is really amazing in this...

The Wandering Nunns

Sep 8, 2011 - Shelborne Nova Scotia Canada

We are staying at Fisherman's Cover RV park in Hunts Point. David and Vivian who own the RV park are very down to earth and welcoming. Hunts Point, where we are staying is a quaint fishing village. We went to Liverpool and drove the scenic drive around the peninsula, we stopped at a famers market that the same family has run for the last 20 years. We then drove to Shelborne, a ship building village. We was the water front, the building all date from the 1780s. We visited Kejimkujik National Park, the only undeveloped park in Canada.

Jun 29, 2011 - Sea fret and strange museums!

The morning started very misty and quite chilly as we headed along the coast towards Liverpool. This was one part of the Nova Scotia coast we had not explored before. Rather than drive around the bay through Bridgewater we took the little car ferry across the LaHave River. Just off the ferry in LaHave was an old outfitters building which had now been converted into a bakery and craft shop. The building alone was worth the stop but of course a latte and a little sweet bakery product was the order of the day. Our next stop was the Fort Point...

Jul 9, 2010 - Kejimkujik National Park

On Thurs, July 8 we made the decision there is no way we can possibly make it clear around the perimeter of Nova Scotia, and still have time to enjoy Cape Breton. We'll drive an additional 100 miles back west along the South Shore to enjoy the Kejimkujik Adjunct Seaside National Park. As we take a leisurely drive west, we make stops in the scenic towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenberg. These are real commercialized tourist traps that we only spent a short time seeing and taking pictures. Then, we took a short exploration looking for a...

Aug 26, 2005 - Liverpool Area

August 26, 2005 (Friday) Today we drove all the way from Kejimkujik National Park to Liverpool (on the east coast of Nova Scotia), about 45 miles! The road on highway 8 is so bad it seemed like 245 miles! Immediately upon arrival in Liverpool we visited the Hank Snow Country Music Centre which houses memorabilia of its "Native Son". We took the opportunity to sing at the Grand Ole Opry (see photos). Hank (aka the Singing Ranger) had a career that spanned over 5 decades and had the longest RCA contract (45 years) in history. Among his #1...

Jul 1, 2005 - Canada Day/Shelburne County Nova Scotia

Found an internet connection not far from the campground and did some updates. Located many of the family sites that have been documented by photos but we have never visited. This is a beautiful area with many coves lined with large granite boulders. The coastal road is called the "Lighthouse Trail". There have to be 15 - 20 within 50 miles. Went down to Barrington yesterday to the Old Meeting House that one of the ancestors helped build in 1765. Drove another 10 miles to Cape Sable for lunch. The area has been socked in with fog and...
