Aug 25, 2012 - Hopewell Rocks & Cape Enrage

Day 13, Saturday, August 25, 2012, Hopewell Rocks & Cape Enrage (8 photos) Made a day trip to Hopewell Rocks with a stop at Cape Enrage, so named by early French explorers because of torturous tidal currents. Hopewell is noted for its “Flowerpot Rocks”, eroded at the bottom, bulging at the top with vegetation. Also opportunity to ‘Walk on the Ocean Floor,” 2 hours before until 2 hours after low tide. Near the tip of the Bay of Fundy the tidal change is dramatic. Cape Enrage, according to local lore, has been rated by Fodors as the best...

Aug 22, 2012 - Day 38 - Fredericton to Moncton, NB

WE found Coast Tire in Moncton quite easily and purchased a new tire and left the RV to have it installed. We used the car to go in search of service for the leveling system. Helpful suggestions from three different places eventually got us the Maritime Hydraulics that said they could look at it if we could come back on Monday. They also said that the last one they looked at was just a leaking o-ring so Garry has his hopes up that the problem can be resolved easily. We killed time by going the Magnetic Mountain in Moncton. Here you drive...

The Wandering Nunns

Jul 30, 2012 - Channel-Port aux Basques, NL to Moncton, NB

Well the Newfoundland part of our trip is over, and we're taking the ferry back to the mainland. Newfoundland was so beautiful and interesting. The experience will stay with us always. I am ready to make a tour and take others. I will never forget quaint fishing towns hugging the shores, waves crashing in sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, lighthouses, thousand of birds nesting, darling bobbing puffins and mighty, magnificent whales all shared with family. It was hard to call our visit to an end. I would have loved to gone to St. Anthony and...

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...
