Sep 22, 2015 - just hanging out

We're actually in a campground called rawdon goldmines, only about an hour drive from the last campground. Well add on 15 minutes we were lost!!!! Nice quiet spot by a little lake. Just relaxing even had a couple of games of crib. Heading back to Chester tomorrow the van is going in for a few more little things . Then it will be perfect. Thursday morning it goes in and we're using a loaner car to go back to Lunenburg to go on the bluenoseII for a 2 hour sail. Bucket list .

Aug 31, 2012 - Windsor at the FCRV Rally

Friday, August 31, 2012 – Windsor at the FCRV Rally After arriving at the Exhibition grounds (same as fairgrounds/livestock show grounds), we set up and visited with a few people in the RV's around us. We went to bed early because we were pooped. The next morning we heard there were U-pick blueberries for $1.50 a lb. so we decided to go get some. We found a wonderful farm, Blueberry Acres, with 68 acres of high bush blueberries. High bush means no bending over to pick them. After we parked the truck, we boarded their bus and were driven...

Aug 30, 2012 - Fort Anne, Port Royal, and Grand Pre National Historic Site

Thursday, August 30, 2012 – Windsor – Exhibition Hall – Family Campers and RV Rally NOTE: The last few pictures of the ship in drydock on the Bigby blog that we sent out on Aug 29 was the Bluenose II. The original Bluenose is the ship on the Canadian dime. The computer battery was losing power so I was in a big hurry to get the blog sent out and did not finish making notes on the last few pictures. Today we are traveling the Harvest Highway. Seems every highway has a name and a number unlike the US. Our first stop was Fort Anne. Canada...

Sep 2, 2009 - Windsor, NS - Halls Harbour & Grand-Pre

(Ron Writing) The weather was just perfect again today – great for being outdoors exploring this beautiful province. Our first adventure today was a short drive north to Halls Harbour, a very small fishing village a few miles north of New Minas. We learned about this picturesque little cove from Ona last night. Halls Harbour is on the Minas Channel where water flows between Minas Basin and the main Bay of Fundy. This is near the east end of Fundy and has some of the most extreme tidal fluctuations. When we arrived it was a couple hours...

Sep 12, 2007 - The Sunrise Trail

We're finding ourselves a bit frustrated. We've been taking the "scenic" routes recommended but mostly we've seen farmland and trees. Glimpses of the Bay of Fundy or the Northumberland Strait are few and far between. You have to leave the main road and seek out small coves and beaches. Which is kind of cool when you find them. It still seems as though Nova Scotia is bent on hiding its best. We turned off at one cove and enjoyed a tantalizing view of the red sandstone walls and beaches. We found Burntcoat Head quite by accident. The sign...

Aug 16, 2007 - Digby to Windsor, Nova Scotia

We expected another cool and rainy day however we awoke to a nearly cloudless sky and bright sunshine. What a difference a few hours can make. After a quick breakfast we left Digby and headed towards Annapolis Royal, one of the oldest settlements in North America. The site was the location of Fort Anne which was first established in 1604. The town itself is very picturesque with an abundence of elaborately decorated victorian houses The historic Fort Anne site is maintained by Parks Canada. The history of the fort includes no less than 7...

Jul 25, 2006 - Cavendish, PEI to Noel, Nova Scotia

PEI to Noel, NS The first 60 miles were a reverse of the route we took to PEI. We had to pay a toll on crossing the 8 mile long Confederation Bridge. Ours was $54 for the motorhome and car. The toll is paid on exit only. Seems designed to keep PEI residents from leaving as the auto fee is almost $40; not a small sum for them. Thirty miles later crossing the bridge we entered Nova Scotia. Stopping at the Welcome Center for maps we were greeted by a young lady Piper in full Scottish Dress. A bit further along the route we took a short side...

Jul 23, 2005 - Lovin' the East

I know, I am horribly behind on the updates but here it is. I arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia about a week ago and was picked up by my dear friend Karen. The first morning was a day of errands and a crash trip around downtown Halifax where Karen and Kirby live. It didn't take me long to become smitten with Halifax. I immediately felt like I was getting closer to my European vacation with each hour that I moved eastward. The narrows streets are lined with beautiful, ornate buildings that made me want to look in all the windows to see what I...
