Jul 29, 2012 - Moncton, Again

On Wednesday shortly after noon we pulled into Moncton for the third time on this journey. It was a three-hour drive from Peggy’s Cove Road in Nova Scotia. Moncton was on our normal route to Quebec but our primary reasons for making it a five-day stay were: follow-up work on the car; connecting with our dear friends Karen and Amy from Baltimore who are exploring the area with friends; and preparing for the days ahead in Quebec, Montreal, and Ottawa. Before going to our hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn, we drove to the “Red Satay Grill” on...

Jul 20, 2012 - Kings Landing and Moncton

Today we got up early and went in to Fredericton(the capital of New Brunswick) and found a GMC dealership that changed the oil and did a multipoint inspection of the Tahoe. They did it in one hour. All is well with the Tahoe. We went back to the campground, hooked up the trailer and drove back up the road 5 km to Kings Landing. What a great educational place this was. They have homes and buildings from 1820 to 1910 and each told the story of that period of time. There were people dressed in the clothes of that time period and they stayed in...

Jun 20, 2012 - Next Stop Prince Edward Island (PEI)

Yes, tomorrow we leave our gracious friends Terry and Lucille and make the two-hour drive to Charlottetown, the capitol and major city on PEI, our second Maritime Province. We’ll spend three nights at the Sonata Inn and tour this small island province, the land of Anne of Green Gables. From there on Sunday we will spend a week in Nova Scotia south of Halifax followed by four days on Cape Breton Island before sailing to Newfoundland on July 5. To my great glee Cousin Kim in St. Johns, Newfoundland has arranged for my July eye treatment while...

Jun 18, 2012 - At Last, Canada

Yesterday, about 5:30PM Atlantic Time – one hour later than EDT – we arrived in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada nearly two weeks later than originally planned. As I mentioned last time we are staying with friends Terry and Lucille who we met at a Marriott Time-share near Paris, France in 2006. They have a lovely two-unit house on a quiet street and we are settled in the second floor apartment for the next few days. Upon our arrival Lucille greeted us with wine and munchies, and we caught up with the latest happenings while we waited for...

Oct 5, 2011 - Moncton

We drove through Wolfville, a quaint place with old buildings and a university, I think most of the population is university people. At Walton there was a rest stop with a lighthouse built in 1873 and view of tidal wash. An amazing thing to see the areas left from such huge tides. Truro further along the Minas Basis is where the highest recorded tides are. Mid afternoon we checked into Stonehurst Trailer Park and Golf course, just outside of Moncton, NB for the next two nights. We tried out the Magnetic Hill, an optical illusion that...

On The Road 2011

Sep 15, 2011 - Moncton, NB

It rained quite hard during the night of the 7/8 and rained most of the way to Moncton on September 8. We are staying at Stonehurst Golf and Trailer Park. It stopped raining soon after we arrived and the sun came out and the clouds went away. Wasn't supposed to happen! On the 9th we went to Hopewell Rocks. 100 billion tonnes of water rush in and out of the Bay each day and it has been nominated for one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature (top 28, voting ends November 11/11). We took the shuttle down to the top of the stairs and Larry went down...

Sep 9, 2011 - Moncton, NB

We crossed the Confederation Bridge this morning leaving delightful Prince Edward Island heading to Moncton, New Brunswick. We want to get to the campsite early enough to have time to set up, unhook the Pilot, then drive about 30 miles to reach Hopewell Rocks at low tide. And we did just that! See next posting...

Aug 29, 2011 - Moncton, New Brunswick

Today started around 0200 this morning when we were awakened by the winds blowing extremely hard and the slide-out toppers sounding as if they were about be torn away from the motorhome. We got up and retracted all four slide-outs and in the process Ross noticed the power was out. Ross went outside to check if the breaker had tripped and found that it had not and that the commercial power was out. There was lightening so he removed the power cord from the power post. We also discovered that there was no water pressure which made sense since...

Aug 28, 2011 - Moncton, New Brunswick

Our party yesterday afternoon was a great success and we lucked out with regards to the rain as everyone had left for home about twenty minutes before some showers arrived. This party was for all of Marge's family in Fredericton. Hopefully, the party was for our arriving and visiting and not that we were finally departing. Around 1500 Lida and her daughter Andrea arrived in the campground. Lida is a very close friend of ours that is also a nursing classmate of Marge. Her daughter Andrea is a professor at the University of Northern British...

Aug 14, 2011 - Back to Moncton, NB

After spending the night at the KOA in North Sydney, Nova Scotia we headed back to Moncton, New Brunswick to stop for the night. We have stopped at the same campground we used when we were headed to Newfie. This stop will leave us within easy drive of the border tomorrow where we will make a run for Bar Harbor. We are looking forward to spending a couple of days cleaning and relaxing from all the driving we have done. It seems like we have been on the road forever because the days have flown by. We have picked up a traveling visitor along...

In Search of Vikings

Aug 1, 2011 - 1'st travel day

Today was our first day of travel to get into Canada. We left BI at 8:15 am and arrived in Moncton, New Brunswick at about 6:30 pm (7:30 local time). It was a long day but very easy travel so we were able to stay relaxed. We got through customs just fine and we even got the stern security woman to smile a little bit. One of the questions she asked was if we were going to visit someone in Newfoundland and I told her we were visiting the Vikings. She cracked a little smile. Today we will head for Sydney to stay overnight in a Wal Mart in...
