Sep 16, 2017 - Halifax to Lunenburg

Getting through Halifax was very interesting. I’m glad the GPS knew where we were going because I certainly didn’t. We seemed to loop around from one highway to another & I completely lost the little sense of direction I’ve got but we finally ended up on the other side of Halifax, pointing towards Peggy’s Cove. This picturesque lighthouse, about 40 km from Halifax, is supposed to be the most visited site in Nova Scotia & one of the most photographed spots anywhere. However, when I left Halifax it was bright sunshine but as soon as I headed...

Canada 2017

Aug 20, 2017 - so much to talk about!

Our day flew by. Visiting with Patti was a blast from the past as we recalled old memories like they were yesterday’s events. It was wonderful to catch up with her and find out how she and her family had been doing since we last spoke with her. Before we knew it the clock was chiming 3pm and we reluctantly parted company, vowing to “do this again soon”. Heading back through Mahone Bay we stopped for photos in this charming, picturesque village. The whole town is made up of heritage buildings that are homes, businesses and services. They...

Aug 9, 2017 - Day 2

We picked up our friends from Fort Saskatchewan this morning and headed for Lunenburg, about an hour away. Lunenburg is so pretty with its colours, open waterfront and colourful businesses. The Bluenose II apparently just got in about 8 o'clock this morning. Unfortunately it was closed for tours due to maintenance and cleaning for the upcoming visit by the "tall ships". We wandered around the harbour front, looking in the shops and being dazzled by all the colours. We had lunch at the "Salt Shaker Deli" which was featured on the TV show...

2017 Maritime Trip

Aug 2, 2017 - Lunenburg, NS.

We drove down to Lunenburg, NS. Which is a beautiful bay with a very colorful fishing village, now a tourist town. It was also the stage for Tom Sellecks, Jesse Stone movies. They have a lot of restaurants, so we had lunch. Larry had the seafood platter of course and Diana ordered a flatbread with seafood, basically seafood pizza. Both were very good. On the way there we drove some back roads that were shorter, but slower. in doing that we went through another place called Mahone Bay, which was an even prettier than Lunenburg, with old...

Jul 20, 2017 - Kejimkujik National Park and a musical

This morning, I went to the health center to have lab work done as ordered by my doctor for every 6 months. I took Linda out for breakfast afterward because she drove me there and paid the $3 parking fee. We ate at a little local cafe and I had eggs benedict! The police chief had entered while we were there and on his way out, he exclaimed that he had only a couple of weeks left - he's retiring at the end of the month! With a note of congratulations, he chatted with us for a few minutes about his career - it was great! Others in the group...

Jun 13, 2017 - Lunenburg, NS

Click on thumbnails to enlarge. Slideshow also available. I left my present site figuring to drive to Halifax for a visit. Sharon and I had been there maybe 15 yrs ago and we loved walking downtown and along the harbor. So I arrived in Halifax, disconnected the car from the motor home in a Walmart parking lot and drove downtown. Things were drastically different. Much of the charm was gone. Downtown was completely torn up with new construction, demolition and reconstruction. Parking was nearly impossible. Many of the harbor front parking...

May 29 Cheryl and I rose at 6:00 so we could take in the car for its windshield wiper inspection at 7:30. By 9:00, we were home with the car; a part for the wiper's motor has been ordered and if all goes well, the repair will be done tomorrow. Although cool, the weather was sunny. Wipers still in erect position, we left for Peggy's Cove, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We followed the coast along a winding road that passes through many small picturesque villages. Peggy's Cove is unique for its geology, large rounded shelves of rock that are...

Sep 20, 2016 - Lunenburg NS

Woke up this morning to fog . It had rained all night, but was bits of drizzle when we hit the road towards Peggy's Cove. Only 7 k away we hit Tourist City. Found out when we tried to find parking that we couldn't, we were pulling our 5th Wheel, because there were 4 cruise ships in Halifax Harbour. and they were here! We were allowed to park for enough time to get some shots, and maneuver around people. That was fine with us, because it was too busy. We then made our way up to Halifax and stopped and shopped for supples, Then we plugged in...

Sep 1, 2016 - South Shore Nova Scotia

Thursday, September 1, 2016 Started from Halifax at 8 AM heading to Prince Edward Island. PEI is the smallest Canadian Province. The island is 140 miles long and 40 miles wide with a population of 140,300. Crossing the 8 mile long Confederation Bridge or taking the Ferry from Nova Scotia is the only way for a car or RV to reach PEI. You pay the toll ($46.00) when you leave the island. After a stop at Tim Horton’s (when in Canada . . .) we crossed the bridge at 11:30 AM. Our first stop was at MOOS Ice Cream. Saw a Moos shop at Halifax Wharf...

Aug 31, 2016 - Lunenberg

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 Started the day with all electronics fully charged, water tank full, gray and black tanks emptied – RV ready for the road. We were lucky enough to find an open spot in the Lunenburg Harbor parking lot. Pulled in next to a PW that was almost a twin to ours. Bodies were the same but their chassis newer. Our PW is a 2007, theirs was a 2010. The owners are French and were uncomfortable talking to us since they did not speak understand much English and spoke even less. We walked uptown to explore Lunenburg and admire...

Aug 31, 2016 - Lunneberg

- - We took hwy 103 to drive to Lunneberg, west of us, about an hour. Our main visit was to see the Blue Nose II and the seaside community, just to experience more of the east coast culture and friendliness. We drove through Mahone Bay, and was beautiful old style homes, colonial pillars that were enveloping the narrow streets. There were lots of restaurants and small shops in town. Large boardwalk and piers line the harbour. For those interested in world class beaches they are here, lots with biking trails to get there. We had lunch at...
