Our last camp in Nova Scotia at Oasis Campground in Antigonish


Thursday, Oct. 4

We left Meat Cove on Thursday morning and headed around the Cabot Trail in a westerly direction. We saw a big bullmoose with a great rack of antlers - almost in the road in front of us, and later saw a female browsing with her two calves (pretty big themselves!). It was a cloudy and somewhat foggy day, and we camped at another National Park Campground, at Cheticamp. The sun cam out and we took a short hike, and settled in for the night in our campsite beside a babbling brook We could see the beginnings of the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday weekend as people poured in in their big RVs.

Friday, Oct. 5

On Friday we left Cape Briton Island and drove to Antigonish, back on the north shore of the "main" island of Nova Scotia, and spent a quiet night at the same Oasis Motel and Campground as we had several days previous.
