Tuesday, September 18
On Tuesday, we visited Grand Pre, a memorial to the Acadians (the original French settlers) who were expelled and deported by the British in 1755. The museum showed a dramatization of the plight of the Acadians in a multi-media theater. From there we drove to Annapolis Royal, still on the Fundy Coast, and camped at an oceanfront campground. We visited nearby Port Royal on Wednesday morning, a reconstruction of the original fur trading French outpost in that area, followed by a lovely hour in the Historic Gardens right in Annapolis Royal. Annapolis Royal is a very small place, by the way.
