Jun 19, 2018 - Murray Beach NB

June 18th Our drive takes us to the foot of the Confederation Bridge to PEI but the wind has pickup so much that strong gusts are blowing us off the road so we opt to say one more night in New Brunswick at a lovely place called Murray Beach. I take the opportunity to do some laundry but the weather starts to deteriorate and inside of the van becomes the drying area. The gusts change from a steady blow to gale force winds and we have no choice but to retreat inside. A gust takes the door and rips the closing mechanism right off (more trips...

Aug 31, 2017 - Short visit to Prince Edward Island Canada

We found a campground near the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island. It was Murray Beach Provincial Park New Brunswick. It was a beautiful campground but windy. We had a great view of the Northumberland Strait which is between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. We set up camp and headed over the bridge to see Prince Edward Island. We did not have enough time to see very much. We did go to the area that Anne of Green Gable was written about. Had a nice late lunch and got to see some nice coastline. We headed back to the bridge...

Aug 14, 2017 - Red Point to Murray Beach

Until now I’ve gone around the edge of Prince Edward Island so today I cut across the middle on my way back to the Confederation Bridge. It was a lovely drive through prosperous & tidy farmland with the added bonus that the roads were much better. The toll to come back over the bridge was $46.50 but the charges are based on the number of axles so I paid the same amount as a car. It’s a hefty toll but still a lot cheaper than the ferry & you don’t have the hassle of needing to be there at a certain time. I learned that the bridge is the...

Aug 19, 2013 - Moncton to Murray Beach

We started today with two new members - a couple on a tandem. They were not able to complete the ride last year so have come back to finish where they left off. A 20-30 km/hr tailwind today shot us into Shediac to see the famous lobster sculpture in no time at all. We stopped for the photo op and then carried on. The road to Murray Beach was under construction. Big chunks of loose stone and washboard where the stones were worn away. Another day I where I was happy to have a shock! The campground was right on the water with a sandy beach so...

Aug 23, 2012 - Murray Beach

Day Sixty Four – Aug 23 Murray Beach 150k Our ride for today would take us to the base of Confederation Bridge. And tomorrow we would be in Prince Edward Island. I was on the road by 7:30. Our breakfasts are earlier these days despite the lack of morning light. We are in the Acadian section of New Brunswick. They are proud of their background and seek to preserve. Flags and variations of flags dot the landscape. There is no separatist sentiment here. It is just an attempt to stave off assimilation on the part of the Acadians. First...

Checking the ditches

Aug 23, 2008 - 64 Murray Beach

This was our first sunny and hot day in a long, long while. I rode solo today along the New Brunswick shoreline for much of the day. There were clam diggers at low tide and numerous birds in the marshes. After stopping at the big lobster in Shediac, I asked a local for the best place to get clams and chips and was directed to Captain Dan's. I confirmed the suggestion with another local and headed off on the side trip to the Shediac wharf. Captain Dan's and the wharf seemed to be the happening place at 2:00 on Saturday. There were lots of...
