Jul 29, 2018 - travel to PEI, Force Project

This was to be a 130 mile drive to Cavendish PEI, Prince Edward Island. We added about 90 miles diverting to see the “FORCE” project site, (Fundy Ocean Research Project for Energy). They had a small visitors center staffed by a couple of young kids on this Sunday morning who couldn’t tell us much, but it was an interesting stop none the less. Cape Sharp Tidal Company, (CTS) is a joint venture multi-phased trial project to develop multi-megawatt electrical power as a renewable electrical energy source using the force and flow of the tides to...

Jun 12, 2012 - Parrsboro

After sleeping in late this morning I headed back into Parrsboro to finish getting “Canada-ized”. First stop was the bank to exchange my U. S. cash for Canadian money. I also tested the ATM to see if my debit card would work. Having been told by a representative of my credit union that I would not be able to use it in Canada, I was a little apprehensive about how I was going to access funds here without incurring cash advance fees on my Visa card. Gratefully, the ATM worked fine and I breathed a sigh of relief. Next stop was the post...

Aug 10, 2010 - Pictures Frames and More

Today we said adieu to the friendly people of Halifax and started upon the rest of our trip. We picked up our vehicle, which again wasn't the easiest of things. There were problemes with the reservation as weren't allowed to drop the car off in St. John's as it is in another region. Eventhough Lawrence had called many times to confirm that the dropp off could be made. Our hearts fluttered for a tense 1/2 hour, but with some presistence we were given the okay and left the for Peggy's Cove. What a picuresque place! As you can see from photos...

Jun 10, 2010 - Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

6/10 – 6/14 Two days and 155 miles brought us to Glooscap Park Campground in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia (PR114, PH1, PH2, PH104, PH2). The first night we stayed at the Loch Lomond Campground in Amherst, Nova Scotia. We tried staying at the Nova Scotia Visitor Center and the Amherst Wal-Mart with no success. Seems that Nova Scotia is not too friendly to RVs in public parking areas. We took a drive to see the Cape D’or Lighthouse (about 30 miles from our house). This lighthouse had a very pretty setting even though the lighthouse itself we not...

Aug 29, 2008 - Fundy Bay

Our first stop in Nova Scotia was a wonderful spot called Five Islands Provincial Park on Fundy Bay. We dry camped (no water or elec.) in an almost empty campground. We could walk to the shoreline. The next morning we went down at high tide – this is a small bay offshoot of Fundy Bay. It is a beautiful bay with water to the shoreline and 5 beautiful, small, uninhabited islands off the point. We returned to the bay about 4:00 PM to “walk on the ocean floor.” It was soooo cool! We walked all the way to a small rock island that was earlier...

Sep 14, 2007 - Cape d'Or to Parrsboro

We left Amherst this morning and stopped first at the Amherst Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary in search of our first geocache. We walked for about half a kilometre or so and, having entered some woods, got our first good glimpse of the water in the middle of the sanctuary. But something seemed to be afoot. It took us awhile...in fact, I thought I was imagining things...but I was right! We were being followed by chickadees! No sooner did we stop when two or three of them began hopping from branch to branch around us. No further away than a...
