Aug 3, 2010 - Bay of Fundy

Sunday, August 1: St Martins We had a super campsite at Century Farm Campground in St Martins, right on the ocean by a long rocky beach with red rock cliffs. St Martins is known for its “world famous” chowder, so we had to at least visit the restaurant even if neither of us had the chowder. The outdoor deck overlooks the “Caves” where we saw kayakers exploring at high tide, and busloads of people walking at low tide. The Fundy Trail is a section of road that is being developed to display the beautiful scenery of the coastline. Many stops...

Jul 25, 2010 - NB Bay of Fundy

Stopped at a beautiful campground right on the Bay of Fundy, twisty turny road to get here but worth the trip. Fog and fog horns for most of the day and the smell of the ocean. We even have cable to watch the race in Indy today. Jamie MacMurray won in a very good action packed race. We even had our race day breakfast at a Timmies of course before we set up camp for the day. Walked along the beach and took some pixs and listened to the waves roll onshore in the evening. Off to get the new helmet in the morning.

Jul 9, 2010 - St. Martins, NB - Century Farms Campground

Our trip from St. John to St. Martins took us about an hour to traverse the 29 miles. The Mothership also got her first opportunity to handle a 13% grade and handled it beautifully. It was only about a mile and a half but she came down it in second without breaking a sweat. We are staying in Century Farms Campground and have a nice, large, full hookup site with a great view of Fundy Bay and we can see the caves from the campground. The satellite setup was quick and easy. The campground has WiFi but it is too far to our site to connect so I...

Aug 14, 2009 - St Martin's Rest Time

We've been in St Martin's for three days now and enjoying our rest time. We walked yesterday for miles along the beach in the morning the weather was fantastic. We've have been meeting lots of people here and having great campfires in the evenings. The morning sunrises have been absolutely beautiful a brillant orange it's hard to stay in bed you want to just get up and sit and watch it rise. The song "Oh how great is our God" comes to mind each time I see the sunrise that he could of created something so beautiful. We have met a couple from...

Aug 11, 2009 - Back In St Martins, New Brunswick

We left Hubbards Nova Scotia at eight this morning and arrived in St Martins New Brunswick at around one. It was an easy drive and very relaxing. We will be here until Sunday then leave for the States where we will spend the next 18 months travelling around starting in Maine then heading over to Vermont, New Hampshire then down into the New England states then into Florida for the winter. We decided that we wanted a rest period before heading out because we figure we'll be pretty busy and on the go for the next couple of months. Brian said...

Jul 15, 2009 - St. Martins, NB

Temp 65 - 234 miles driven We checked out of the KOA but not before adding on fresh (American) water and getting the propane gas tank filled up. Bob and Jill disagreed (of course) on the desired route to take for the 135 mile drive to the border. After about 10 minutes of “recalculating”, I turned Jill on mute. The border crossing was uneventful but crowded. The traffic all funneled across a two lane bridge just before the Canadian border. They looked at our passports, Darby’s vaccination records and asked a few questions, then waved us...

Jul 7, 2009 - Fundy Trail Parkway

Today we had a leisurely morning it was a bit cold out so we just waited until it started to warm up a bit. It ended up being a nice day still cool out 60 degrees but at least not raining. Tonight we had the owner of the park, Byron take us over to his house which was built in the 1800's by a Sea Captain. All the work as I had said perviously was done by shipbuilders. Well we walked into this home and could not believe how beautiful it was. All the ceiling were hand-painted by artists from Italy. They were done in flower patterns in very...

Jul 6, 2009 - Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick

Yesterday was overcast so we thought it was a good day to head out to Hopewell Rocks which is about 2 hrs from St. Martins. It was a very windy drive and we passed through the Fundy Provincial Park which had quite a bit of road construction I was glad we weren't pulling the fifth wheel. We arrived around noon which was a low high tide and stayed till 2:00 to see the low tide. The Bay of Fundy is 290 kilometers (180 miles) in length. The mouth of the Bay is 62 miles wide and 400-700 feet deep. The bay is described as funnel-shaped, the bay...

Jul 4, 2009 - Saint Martins Caves

This morning we woke up to pouring rain and thunder so we just stayed in bed until 10:00 which is really late for us. We got up and read the news and we saw a little bit of light outside with no rain so we decided to go for a walk along the beach. It was cold but it was good to get outside. They had today at lunch a free bbq so we wandered up at 12:00 and had hot dogs and cake. It was really nice we met lots of people and had a good time talking with them. They have tonight for $3.00 a dance with live music so we are going to that at 7:30....

Jul 3, 2009 - St Martins, New Brunswick

Well we finally have internet again. Just to give you an update of what we have been doing. We drove down to Bouctouche on Canada Day to see Le Pays De La Sagouine we thought it was a little village on an small little island that had entertainment and we could celebrate Canada Day there. It was one of the few days that we had rain off and on but it was still very cold. It ended up the village is an Acadien village where they are wanting to teach the young people about their heritage so as you can imagine everything is in French. They had a...

Jun 21, 2009 - The gower in the middel of winter!

We thought we would spend the night on the beach of the Bay of Fundy. Two campsites to choose from. Waters are supposed to be around 30deg C at this time of year. Sounds lovely. Arrive to find that the wind is blowing a gale off the bay. Rain is entering the town sideways and the is a nasty chill to the air. I decided that if we stayed here tonight it would be very cold later on. We have arrived at low tide. The tide has another 37 feet to rise before high tide tonight. Decide to head inland for a bit more shelter.
