Jul 11, 2012 - Relaxing in Truro today getting ready for departure tomorrow

Today Mom did some errands in the morning while Papa made sure that all levels were good in Rv as well as some small repairs. We are ready to go first thing in the morning. We are working towards a 8:30am departure. It is with mixed emotions we leave. The kids are upset because we are leaving without a 7 week old Shih Tzu puppy. They have grown very fond of these puppies and do not want to leave them. We have had such great times on this trip and do not want it to end. But we will like to be home as well and back into our own beds and...

Jul 9, 2012 - Just a travel day

This morning, Bev drove the CRV behind the motorhome for several miles. We didn't want to tow the car up and down some of the grades of Cape Breton. Once we made our way onto the Trans Canada Highway, we hooked up the car and continued our journey west. As we are attempting to get some business items taken care of in the next few days, we are just covering miles, but since we're in Canada yet, maybe it's kilometers. Late in the afternoon, we fueled up in Truro and found a shopping center near the freeway that had a very quiet corner. So we...

Dream On

Jul 8, 2012 - Truro, Nova Scotia

We visited the Masstown Market today just outside Truro, Nova Scotia. It is a huge marketplace, similar to but much bigger than Trader Joe’s. They had fresh local fruits and vegetables, gifts, wines and liquors, and a restaurant in a model lighthouse. We had fish (again), but huge servings, enough to take some with us for another day. They even had a band playing at the restaurant. Nancy ran into the man who owns it who she had met in Texas earlier this year. We traveled on from there to Truro and stopped to see the tree sculptures. It...

Barb's Retirement

Jul 7, 2012 - Truro Market

Today was Farmer’s Market day in Truro. Since I was working second shift, I decided to head into town in the morning to see what I could find. The market is held in the historic district, in the old firehouse. Vendors were spread out in the park adjacent to the building as well as inside. There were fresh veggies piled on tabletops; woolen items from the sheep farmers; honey in a variety of forms and flavors from the beekeepers; organic cheeses, sausages and meats; fresh baked breads and pastries; and the most beautiful flowers of different...

Jul 5, 2012 - Leaving Nova Scotia for PEI

I (mom) did some last minute shopping in the morning leaving Oma and Jer home to get things ready for our trip across to Prince Edward Island. We were originally leaving tomorrow for the island but Oma thought we should leave a day earlier due to high volume of people at the Cavendish Beach festival as well as another blue grass festival. We arrived at the ferry dock just in time to see the 1pm ferry pull away. We waited in a lineup of many rv's and fifth wheels. Jer, Oma, Cadence and Leland headed out to the dock to take in some sights....

Jul 3, 2012 - July 3

We arrived in Truro last night around 10:45pm. Children were all asleep in their jammies, what a great way to travel! We just plugged in at the Papa's, had a little visit then went to sleep. Papa and oma have two very cute 6 week old puppies. We always know where Cadence is, she has been mothering them since she woke up this morning. Mommy put the little girl puppy, Shiloh, in bed with Cadence to wake her up. I should have taken a picture of her face when she saw the puppy. Very cute! On the agenda today....get air conditioners in RV...

We watched the Tidal Bore come in, but, it was small we could see it, but, it wasn't big enough to make our website. hahahaThe Victoria Park is a well maintained piece if land complete with a couple of small mountains, waterfalls, trails, even a swimming pool. It a favorite place of the community.

Jun 21, 2012 - Truro

Today I took my first trip into Truro ~ the biggest city I have been in since leaving Boston. Provincial Route 2 is the only road to everywhere in this area. It is a scenic road that hugs the coast almost all the way to Truro. With mountains on one side and the water on the other, the drive takes you up and down hills, around curves, through little villages, and you never know when you will be confronted with some breathtaking vista. About fifteen minutes from Truro the road ends at the Trans Canada Highway and you rejoin the 21st century....

Aug 21, 2011 - Truro, NS

Initially, Truro was known as the hub because the railways linking Nova Scotia met here. Now this town of 12,000 is the hub of the Maritime's provincial highways network. We changed our schedule a little bit ending up in Truro for a week taking day trips to Pictou and Tatamagouche. You will read about those in the next two postings.

Canada & USA Journey

Aug 7, 2011 - Baddeck, NS to Truro, NS 165 miles

We left beautiful Baddeck for Truro. Even though it rained much of our time there, this is a new favorite place for me. We left in the rain and drove into sun and 83 degrees. Then, it rained again. Locals say this is the rainiest summer they've ever had. We came here for only 1 night, to see only 1 thing - A Tidal Bore. This is when the tide reverses in front of your eyes. The tides here are so high that when it shifts (coming in) it creates a wave as it ushers into the rivers and creeks. Another neat thing about this natrural phenomenon is...
