Sep 1, 2006 - Truro, Nova Scotia

Yesterday we moved from North Sydney to Truro, NS. Everyone spent the rest of the day cleaning or driving around, we helped Phil and Leah shop for a thank you gift for our travelcade leaders. Supper was at the campground, a really good BBQ chicken dinner. The campground owners than presented us all with certificates enrolling us in the "Order of the Good Time".

Aug 27, 2006 - To Truro, NS

Louisbourg to Truro, NS - 234 miles - August 27, 2006 Todays drive was long, but easy. The roads were mostly smooth with just enough "bumps" to keep things shook up. Our rigs were parked around a large grassy field. It was a Sunny Sunday Afternoon which made for a relaxing Social Circle. Tonight was scheduled as the "unofficial" farewell dinner - a Pizza supper. We have a Caravan sponsored farewell dinner the last night of the tour, but in a restaurant not suitable for speeches and tomfoolery. Our birdwatchers, Bruce and Olive, had Don...

Jul 30, 2006 - Noel, Nova Scotia

Yesterday we left Prince Edward Island and moved to Noel, Nova Scotia. We are camped at what used to be Rainbow Fishing & RV Park. All that is left are a few fish ponds. We parked around a fish raising pond, had no electricity, no water and no sewer. We are here for two nights. Needless to say Cady is in seventh heaven. We open the door and she jumps in and she doesn't have to be on a leash all the time. Noel is a little town with a population of about 80 people. They provided us with two suppers and a breakfast. The proceeds are used by...

Jul 18, 2006 - Truro, NS - Ferry & Tidal Bore

The highlight of our day today is the Ferry ride to Truro, NS. But, first, we bid good-bye to PEI with a promise to definitely return. We made the short drive from Cavendish around Charlottetown and arrived at Wood Islands around 10 o'clock. We hoped to catch the 11 o'clock ferry. This is a first-come, first-served ferry and there was quite a line. We walked around the docks and saw the Wood Islands Lighthouses. We soon figured out we weren't going to get on our ferry so we had lunch and managed to board the 1 o'clock departure. This was a...

Jun 15, 2006 - Truro, NS

June 15 - Truro, NS Stopped in Truro for one night, at Scotia Pines campground, to break up the drive to Cape Breton and to see the Tidal Bore. Most people seem to have trouble with the concept of the tidal bore. The Bay of Fundy has some of the highest tides in the world of about 30-40 feet in many areas. The Bay also narrows as you head inland which creates a surge of water once the incoming tide reaches the rivers at the head of the Bay. At Truro, the Salmon River is a tidal river and this surge races upriver about two hours before high...

Sep 1, 2005 - Digby to Glenholme, NS

September 1, 2005 We woke up in Digby, in the Wal Mart parking lot to lots of rain and wind. Ted and Jane were still in their RV and we sympathized with them having to walk their doggy in this downpour. We started out on Highway 101, but then took Exit 24 so that we could do a scenic side trip to Bear River, "The Switzerland of Nova Scotia." It continued to rain, but it didn't spoil our view of the waterfront buildings which are built on stilts so as to stay above the high tides. The town has a definite European flavor with its unique...
