North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Hopewell Cape September 15th 2014

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for the positive comments on the blog. Today we took a day trip to Hopewell Cape here in New Brunswick. It is located on the southeast side of New Brunswick near the Bay of Fundy. I had an experience that I had never had before. I was able to walk on the floor of the ocean. This is a very nice area to view the tides coming in and out. We arrived around 10:00 in the morning. We were able to walk down 106 stairs(I counted) to the floor of the ocean as it was low tide. This is a very unique place. Because 6 hours later we returned to see high tide. Today the high tide was around 39 ft. Usually, the highest the tide gets ... read more

Yesterday we drove from Quebec to New Brunswick. New Brunswick is a Canadian Province in the Maritimes. We drove all day in the rain yesterday and stayed in Woodstock, New Brunswick. It was cold this the upper 40's and the furnace was on in the RV. Sometime in the night the electricity went off but came back on. Our slide in the bedroom would go part of the way out last night but we were able to get in bed. When you have a RV, it is always something. Today we drove to Cap-Pele in New Brunswick. It was a beautiful day but a little cool. One thing that I noticed is how steep the roofs are. I guess so the snow doesn't accumulate on the roof. The landscape on the drive down was a ... read more

North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Campbellton September 5th 2014

We decided that we did not want to take the same route back and set our trail to go by Bathurst, Campbellton and then to Rimouski, Quebec where there is sub the Onondaga. Tom took a tour Fred and stayed outside and went for a little walk. Tom says it was really neat and they give you a little radio so you can hear at each station what you are looking at. He says next time he will decently bring me and his camera lol. Since it was still fairly early we decided to head and stay the night in Riviere Du Loup, and off we went. We found a Comfort Inn checked in then went to fuel up. While inside I noticed they sell beer, wine and coolers :) had forgotten about that, and bought ... read more

Once again back at Tom's sisters and the sun is shining bright, but the mosquitos are still ever present so being out side is not a option. We decided to take Tom's sister and go and see here son and a pick up a few groceries today. Prices has always been an interest to me (weird ya I know) and most stuff was comparable to us except the dairy products. oh my my, a bag of milk is almost eight bucks and cream, butter and beef were just as expensive. seafood of coarse was a bit cheaper.... read more

Sure enough up and ready to go and no one at the motel not even to had in the key. So a bun each and we were off to the rocks. The morning was cloudy and cool, but we were determined to go. We walked down and I kept thinking boy I hope there is a shuttle back up lol, Fred as always sniffing all the way and excited to see where we were going. Once at the bottom it was a beautiful as I thought it would be. Then I could hear a strange noise coming from out in the water, and I could see the rain coming our way. We walked along the edge of the rocks while poured rain for a bit, once it let up we continued. Had it been nicer I ... read more

North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Hopewell Cape September 1st 2014

There are 2 motels near the rocks and the one did not take dogs so we ended up @ the Chocolate River motel. The rooms were clean, but other then a bed toilet, sink and tub, they didn't offer much. I knew going in that it was no where 5 star, but was hoping at least for a mini fridge lol. We then went to eat Tom had spotted a place on our way to the motel, so we went to check it out. Pauline's place was the name of the restaurant and there were several cars in the lot, so it looked promising. But unless you were a regular, they didn't seem to care about our business. We were group 3 of the 6 groups there, and watching the waitress with the others that lived ... read more

North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Miramichi August 31st 2014

Ran out of room to type, so here I continue. Was looking this morning and thinking, hhmm maybe we should do a quick little ferry ride over to Newfoundland since we have come all this way it would be a shame to leave it out. Well at a cost of over 300.00 and 8 hour ferry ride, thinking maybe not in plans after all lol. So for myself, will have to leave Newfoundland along with NWT and Nuavic as provinces yet to see. Fred is having a great time the smell of fish, wind blowing in his ears. He has enjoyed the luxury of his on bed in a hotel in Quebec, to his own chair at Shela's. So for him this travel thing is great. Well time to get the masses up and moving, although ... read more

Well it's early and I'm up, while everyone else sleeps I figured it was a good time to add some things we have done. We arrived on Thursday and Tom's sister Shelia could not believe we were there. Her children came over with their children and we had a nice visit. Friday we were up and out the door, left a note gone for a little drive. We left at 8:00 and returned around supper. New Brunswick travel in one of their travel books gives a scenic driving map. It is made up of 5 different routes, so we thought we drive for a bit and follow the map, wedid the Acadian coastal drive and needless to say we finished almost the entire route. Turning back at Port Elgin and leaving Sacville as the only place ... read more

North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Fundy National Park October 19th 2013

Today we got to Fundy National Park in New Brunswick. It was a 4 hour drive from Lunenburg. When we got there it was about 6:00 so we just set up camp and made supper, after dinner we went to bed. The first full day there we stayed at camp and did school work because we were tired from doing so much in the days before. The second day, Mom and I went to a mushroom walk. I liked it! The researchers were really informative. When it was over we went for a kayak on a little lake, it was hard yet fun, we were pooched. Once we got back and put the kayaks on the car it started to rain. When we got back to the camp it started to pour. At camp we hid ... read more

North America » Canada » New Brunswick » Fundy National Park September 25th 2013

We got to Fundy National Park late in the day but we still had enough time to set up, make supper and try to go see the stars. They have a dark sky designation and a big portable telescope, but the sky wasn't cooperating; it was full of clouds. Still we had a great conversation with the park people and went to sleep full of ideas for the next few days. I thought the park would be functioning at minimum but they did have activities set up all weekend. Jacob and I went to the fungi foray. A number of experts walked with us on a trail along a beautiful stream and then waterfall. The experts helped us see the diversity of fungi all around us. Then mushrooms started catching everyone's eye everywhere. We got to ... read more
