Jun 9, 2017 - repairs, Laundry and a short drive

MILES DRIVEN 70 WEATHER started out nice and sunshiny then clouded and some rain Temps are 60 low and 75 high WHERE WE STAYED Walmart STORY; Started out slow today. Made pancakes and then walked around the camp site. Made a Walmart stop, and then checked on the jeep. The part is on the delivery truck and almost here. So we set off into the town of Campbellton known for the largest salmon in the world. Took a nice stroll alone the river and then stopped at a fly-fishing museum. By 4PM the jeep was ready so we hooked up and headed south...

Jun 11, 2011 - Bathurst, New Brunswick

Our next destination was Bathurst, New Brunswick, for a two night stay that would give us the opportunity to visit the Historic Acadian Village, a recreation of the daily life of Acadians from the late 1700s to the early 1900s. ON OUR WAY TO BATHURST On our way to Bathurst we were treated to some interesting sites. We stopped for about an hour at the Irving Eco-Center in Bouctouche, New Brunswick. Its purpose is to preserve the Dune de Bouctouche, a narrow strip of land about two miles long that juts out into the sea. There is an...

Aug 19, 2010 - Headed for the Ferry

Another blue sky day as the sun rose beside Perce Rock. We only knew that because we looked out the bedroom window at 5:50 AM. Up and on our way by 9:00 AM. Perce has been a pleasant surprise. We are glad we didn't stay in the town of Gaspe. Drive today was great. Scenic and no steep hills. We travelled by the ocean but not as close as before and even though Marilyn did a better job of watching for whales she still didn't spot any. Had lunch on the water on Chaleur Bay. Every town has a roadside park. Most are beside the water and have room...

Aug 16, 2010 - Drive to Bathurst, New Brunswick

We drove the RV to Bathurst, New Brunswick, which is about halfway to our next stop. We didn’t plan to see anything in Bathurst, but unhooked and drove through the town. There was a one lane bridge over a pretty stream and the town has a great location on a small bay with nice views.

Jul 24, 2009 - Bathurst, New Brunswick

We got an early start; had a little longer journey planned, although as the day progressed, we shortened it. We had the time change for Atlantic time too so we had to set our watches ahead an hour. Our drive took us along the north side of Chaleur Bay in Quebec. This bay is ranked as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. We’re not sure who gets to vote on that ranking although we would agree there is some beautiful coastline along here. Our GPS was suggesting we take a little swim, or a ride on a ferry, so we overrode that idea; it’s...

Jun 27, 2009 - Derby Junction, New Brunswick

Brian got back to New Brunswick on Thursday and he was very tired it was such a fast trip there and back. Everything went well with the procedure and they said that his back may still be sore for the next 5 to 7 days or longer just because of some swelling and healing that needs to happen and he has to watch to make sure he doesn‘t get any infection where they went in with the needles. We are pleased to say so far his back has felt pretty good it has been sore periodically but nothing like before and he had a very good day today. On our...

Jul 20, 2005 - Acadian Coast North - New Brunswick

We came into Campbellton, New Brunswick along the Matapedia River valley - staring across the river at the amazing Sugarloaf Mountain. We were thrilled to cross over into New Brunswick as, despite the adventure we had with trying to get along with the French language in Quebec, we were craving some English conversation. This goes to show how unaware we Westerners are about our country. The Acadian Coast (and much more of New Brunswick) is VERY French and though signs were bi-lingual for the most part, many people spoke only French. We are...
