Today was a fairly long day of driving. We drove 206 miles to the next campground. After we had driven approximately 100 miles we entered the providence of Nova Scotia. I thought the lupins were beautiful in New Brunswick but not in comparison to Nova Scotia. The lupins here grow wild along side the road out in the fields, kind of like our flock grows wild in New York State, but the lupins are much more colorful with the pink, purple and white flowers. Hopefully I'll get an opportunity to take a picture to include in the journal.
Today is a travel day to get us closer to our destination tomorrow of Little Bras D'Or, Cape Breton Island. As we traveled today, I remembered something that one of our caravan friends said on our first Caravan. "No matter where you travel in your motorhome, looking out your windshield is like looking out the window at the world." How very true that is. We sit up so much higher and we get to see so much more as we go over the hills or cross over the bridges and see what is down below. In our minds, we are loving the opportunity that we are given.
We arrived at Whidden's Campground in Antigonish (Aunt-Ta-Ga-Nish), a Mic Mag Indian word meaning "Where two rivers meet". The campground is a nice park that is right in the middle of town.
