Sep 24, 2017 - Quebec - on overnight train to Dalhousie to Halifax

24/9/2017. Sunday. Quebec - on train to Halifax Our last day in Quebec. Sad, but we are so thankful that we've had this opportunity. A steep, enjoyable walk took us down to the port area where we joined a 1.5 hour cruise on the Lawrence River. It was very hot - 29 degrees - sitting in the sun, and neither Anne nor I had hats - the men did. We passed the Montmorency Falls, which are higher than Niagara Falls but not as wide or has the volume of water flowing over them. They were huge though, and a lovely sight from the river, as was a very...

Aug 2, 2017 - Hope Town to Charlo

Not only am I in a new province (New Brunswick), I’m also in a new time zone (Atlantic Time) so I’ve jumped forward another hour. I needed it. I’ve been really out of sync with the time lately, waking up much too early when it’s fully light before 5:00am, then I’m ready for bed by 9:00pm. Today I travelled west for most of the drive, along the north shore of Chaleur Bay then south across the Restigouche River into New Brunswick. The bay was foggy so it wasn’t worth stopping to take photos but just before I crossed the river, I went to the...

Sep 22, 2013 - Riviere-du-Loup QC to Dalhousie, NB

September 22 Rained all night and likely to continue for a few more days as we eventually head south. We continued on route 132 through the little towns and stopped in Saint Simon Bagel for artisan Montreal bagels (they are not as thick as others) and Boulangerie Folles Farines (Crazy Flour) for a baguette in Le Bic. From there to Mont Joli where we turned south toward New Brunswick Route 132 was not as quaint and in fact we saw bill boards amongst the grain silos. Heading south on 132 we were driving through the Valley Region of Quebec...

Jul 26, 2013 - Inch Arran and Dalhousie

Our short stay in Dalhousie was quiet and enjoyable. We had one good weather day and one not so good. We had two nice meals at the Lighthouse Restaurant, a small restaurant in the campground. The town was friendly and generally bilingual. Tomorrow we head for Prince Edward Island.

Jul 24, 2013 - Aurevoir Quebec, Bon Jour New Brunswick

We packed up this morning and headed southwest on highway 132 on our way to Dalhousie, NB. Before leaving we met Bob Foran’s brother, Martin, and his wife, Nancy, who live in Dalhousie. Route 132 stays on the water most of the way to the bridge that crosses into New Brunswick. After crossing the bridge we found highway 11 for the short drive back to the southeast. We are now set up in Inch Arran Park on the waterfront of Dalhousie.

Jul 2, 2010 - Entering New Brunswick

Leaving Tete d’Indien, near Percé, on the Gaspé Peninsula (called Land’s End), we drove a fair distance to Dalhousie, New Brunswick. It seemed like we drove forever up the south short of the peninsula, along the Chaleur Bay, crossed at the end of the bay and were in New Brunswick and didn’t have a great distance from there to get to Dalhousie. It took us awhile to find the RV Park, but we made it and were in another beautiful spot, right on the water. Such smooth water – I kept wishing the water had been like that when I tried to take to...

Jun 20, 2010 - Inch Arran Park in Dalhousie, NB

Park Inch Arran in Dalhousie, NB: We want to get to the campground in Dalhousie, NB, reasonably early, because it does not accept reservations and some nice views seem possible. We manage to get a wonderful site overlooking the Bay of Chaleurs, complete with some small wave action (lapping sounds) and within a short walk to a scenic lighthouse. We park with the big window facing the water, and get so close we actually have to back up a couple of feet when we learn of a restriction designed to ensure no one is too close to fire rings we...

Aug 22, 2009 - Dalhousie, New Brunswick

DALHOUSIE, NEW BRUNSWICK Arran Park, CANADA August 22, 2009 On the way to the city of Miramichi where we were to stay for the next week, we drove along Hwy 17 from St. Leonard and along what is called The Appalachian Range Route to Campbelton. This took all morning and it was early afternoon before we ended the Appalachian Range part of the scenic drive and entered onto the Acadian Coastal Drive. The first little city on this drive is DALHOUSIE. We were starved, so we looked for a place to eat that could also accommodate parking the RV. We...

Jul 7, 2008 - Monday, Charlo, NB (221 miles)

Not too far into today's drive we came to the town of Perce. A large rock formation in the water is one reason this spot attracts visitors and artists who are drawn to the beauty of the area. As we entered the southern, or Bay Area it is called, temperatures warmed up and there were beaches along the way with people sunbathing. Not too many in the water, but the French really make use of the sun while it's shining. With such cold winters, many enjoy sunbathing on their front porches, or working in the yard in bathing suits. People seem to...

Jun 17, 2006 - Somewhere in New Brunswick

We have made it into New brunswick. So far we have logged just over 7,000KM On Friday we took a cruise on the St Lawrence but it seems as though I somehow deleted them all. Oh well, it was fun. I will post some pics tomorrow when we get to Moncton. I promise. Ok, I promised...here are some of the "lost pics"

May 31, 2006 - Carleton-sur-Mer

May 31 - Carleton-sur-Mer Well, we have to move on, but Dan (the proprietor of Camping Tete l'Indien) makes you feel so welcome, you want to stay longer. It was also a very unique spot and the weather was terrific. We woke this morning to more sunshine and temperatures in the high teens, with a forecast of 25C. Today, we drove the south coast of the Gaspe Peninsula. Very different geography than the north side. Here you have sloping farmland down to Chaleur Bay, which is much calmer than the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This area is called the...
