Sep 29, 2015 - Change of plans

Today was a good news bad news kind of day. Hmmm...which first?? Good news! Freddie got an oil change!!!! Finally, it was very overdue. After so many attempts, and getting told by almost every Ford dealer in Atlantic Canada that they were booked two weeks in advance. We took another chance and tried again and bingo we found a well run dealership in Charlottetown and got in!! Bad news.... We knew Wednesday was going to be rainy, but it was upgraded very substantially to a severe storm. With up to 100 mm of rain falling and the severe winds...

Sep 27, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

Days 96 – 99 (September 23rd - 26th) Fredericton, New Brunswick The move from Cornwall, PEI to Fredericton, NB was uneventful—good weather, moderate traffic and controlled access roads most of the way. We arrived at our RV Park early-afternoon and were surprised by the location of our site: it was in a forested area more than a mile from the park office. We setup, then drove about 15 miles into Fredericton to do some shopping, fuel the truck and verify mass times. Unfortunately, the church we planned to attend was located on a road that...

The drive from Digby to the campground, Scotia Pines, was uneventful. The weather was overcast and humid with temperatures in upper 70’s and low 80’s. The road was in good condition and the traffic was light. Scotia Pines is large campground located about 0.5 miles from the Trans-Canada Highway 102 that connects Truro, Nova Scotia with Halifax, Nova Scotia. The campground is a clean and neat campground but it is very crowded. The sites are closely packed and the campers tend to be young with a slew of kids running about everywhere. That...

2015 New York Trip

Jul 29, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

It is Wednesday, July 29 and tomorrow we leave Fredericton for Pictou, Nova Scotia and the Harbourlight RV Park. We have reservations at the park and unlike other parks the owner, Cameron Mac Donald, is very, very flexible with reservations. I told him several months ago that Marge and I were coming to Nova Scotia again this year but I had no specific date at the time. As we got closer and closer I have kept him informed and once we were in Fredericton I was able to set a specific date for our arrival. If anyone reading this journal ever...

2015 New York Trip

Jul 26, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

Today the weather is much the same as yesterday which was overcast and cool. It was in the upper 50’s overnight and was great sleeping weather. Yesterday morning we were scheduled to leave Fredericton for New River Beach which located about 80 miles from Fredericton and is near St Stephen, New Brunswick. New River Beach is on the northern part of the Bay of Fundy which is a very large body of water located between the state of Maine and Nova Scotia with portions of New Brunswick situated at the top of the bay. The Bay of Fundy is noted for...

2015 New York Trip

Jul 24, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

Yesterday morning around 0830 Eastern Time, 0930 Maritime Provinces Time, we left the Pumpkin Patch RV Park headed for Fredericton, New Brunswick; a distance of about 180 miles. The temperature was cool and the sky was clear. However, the sky to the north was cloudy and the weather forecast indicated that rain showers should be expected north of Bangor, Maine and across New Brunswick. We both expected that we would run into rain because we had the motorhome and pickup truck pressure washed the day before. Traffic was light and with the...

2015 New York Trip

May 17, 2015 - Frederiction, New Brunswick - May 2015

Our first night in New Brunswick and we are boondocking at a Walmart. There are not many campgrounds close enough to the city of Fredericton. We are actually at the North Walmart in the north side of Fredericton across the river from downtown area. This Walmart had no problem with us staying for a few days. In fact, during our stay it was used as a staging area for a number of locals. The internet worked ok in the store. Fredericton is capital of New Brunswick. In keeping with visiting capitals, we visited the Legislative Assembly for New...

Aug 8, 2014 - Fredericton, NB Day 2

We woke up to rain so delayed going touring for awhile. Brad and Linda decided to stay at the campground. Teri, George, Bill and Margaret headed out to Kings Landing a historical settlement dating back to the mid 1800's. It was reconstructed on 400 acres along the St. John River. There are 27 buildings spread out on the acreage to depict a community during that time which is very well done. All of the buildings are original brought from surrounding communities and furnished with original pieces. The man working in the wood shop looked like...

It rained all through the night sometimes quite hard. We had donuts, coffee, tea and hit chocolate for our Farewell Breakfast. We said our goodbyes and returned to hook up the tow cars. Most donned rain gear while doing that. We were one of the last to leave. We will be traveling for a few more days with Teri and George James our Tailgunners until we get into Vermont. We must say that this has been a wonderful experience and are sure glad we decided to go. The Staff were absolutely great and we could have not asked for more. Thank you again...

Jul 24, 2014 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

It almost seems a little strange to be traveling by ourselves. We got a good start this morning, after saying our goodbyes, and drove north to Truro. From there we got back on the Trans Canada and drove west. We decided to stop at Fredericton, so we could catch up on laundry. We haven’t had a sewer hookup for the last few days, so decided to find a full hookup campsite, and stop early to do laundry. Glenna found Hartt Island Campground, and after a quick call we reserved a site. It is a very nice campground. I don’t know if you saw it on...

Sep 21, 2013 - Day Twelve

Wake up call at 6:00 am, bags out the door by 6:30 and on the coach by 7:30. We had an included continental breakfast of toast, cereal, yogurt and fruit at 7:00. On the road again :) First stop was at Timmy's in St. Jean-Port-Joli then down the road to "Sculpture & Ebenisterie Beauregard" which is a wood carving shop. We were actually heading to a different shop, however due to road construction, we were unable to make our way there and thanx to our fantabulous driver (who backed down a construction zone for about a 1/4 of a mile before he...
