Sep 12, 2018 - Gand Falls to Shediac, NB

September 12, 2018 Grand Falls was a French settlement that became a British military post in 1790. The people speak primarily French and all of the signs are in French/English. It is the only town in the Atlantic Provinces with an official town in both languages Grand-Sault. We didn’t go out of our way to see the falls (the largest east of Niagara) as Hwy 108 was very close to camp. Hwy 108 is almost 50 miles shorter than traveling on Hwy 11 which is a major route. (We are driving 225 miles and want to get to Shediac, Lobster Capital of...

Jul 2, 2018 - Hopewell Rocks

We awoke to a low hanging thick fog. Thankfully, by 10 it was clearing, and by the time we reached the bay, the sky was picture perfect blue. Today is the day on which Canada Day was recognized. We found that some gas stations and restaurants were open. However, I can best sum up the seriousness of this day by telling you that the WAL MARTS WERE CLOSED!!! We saw no retail stores open. The lack of traffic was to our advantage. We stopped in Moncton to view the Petitcodiac River (nicknamed Chocolate River). You can see that the nickname is...

Jul 1, 2018 - Sunday at Riverview, New Brunswick

We worshipped with a small group of Christians in Riverview, New Brunswick. They are small in numer (maybe 14 regulars), but they are huge in warmth and genuineness. Almost every member spoke to us. The speaker, Stephon Maillet, is a native of NB and preached for them about 7 years. He Is enrolled in biblical studies in Knoxville, TN!! He will return there in the fall. There was a woman also visiting from northern Alabama! In fact, she’s been here for two weeks. She has been a Christian for about six months. She learned the gospel through...

Jun 30, 2018 - Travel to Shediac, New Brunswick

We enjoyed our overnight stay in Belledune, NB. We had a very nice walk on the beach. It was very much unlike the beach on the northern side of the Gaspé Peninsula. This beach was river gravel. Our view across the bay was that of the southern coast of Gaspé Peninsula. We departed about 9:30 ADT. That is 7:30 CDT! The drive today was not as scenic as yesterday. The highway cuts through forested land. The road conditions continued to be the same. We saw numerous people on the sides of the roads gathering what turned out to be wild...

Jun 4, 2017 - checking out Shediac

A quiet start this morning as we did a little housecleaning and attacked our mountain of laundry before walking uptown to peruse the Shediac Farmers Market. It was bustling with lots of potential customers checking out the many arts and crafts stalls or sampling some of the various food vendors. We always look more carefully at these food vendors since hearing about our friend Joanne’s adventures helping her sister run a food truck on the rodeo circuit last year. Donna is convinced it would be great fun so who knows, maybe you will see her...

Jun 2, 2017 - dunes & boardwalks

Our mosquito free campsite turned out to be a great spot after all that running around. As a result we will be endeavouring to stay at places close to the water despite the possibility of being exposed to hurricane force winds! We may have to hang on to our hats when we go outside but we won’t have to lather up with deet and all those nasty chemicals! We have had very good weather on this trip so far. A little cool but almost no rain. However this morning the rain was pelting down while we hooked up the trailer as we got ready to move...

Aug 15, 2013 - Sussex (NB) to Pointe du Chêne (NB)

I awoke at my usual 4:30 am and, since there had been a decision to delay breakfast until 7:00 am, I made my own and left the campsite at 6:00 am. The route had us taking side roads to Petitcodiac, then Highway 106 through River Glade to Salisbury, then Highway 112 to Riverview. From there we crossed the Petitcodiac River and took side streets through Moncton (the largest city in New Brunswick), then Highway 134 and 133 to Shediac, close to which Pointe-du-Chêne is located. The route to Salisbury was quite hilly and road surfaces were poor,...

Aug 14, 2013 - Shediac, New Brunswick

Arrived: Shediac, New Brunswick Departed: Prince Edward Island We left Woodstock with the normal cloudy weather we have been in most of the time. It rained a lot last night but we were tucked in dry and as Ray says “at least it is a warm rain”. The sun was actually shining when we arrived in Shediac. Shediac is a resort town located near Moncton and on the shores of Northumberland Straight. We are staying at a Provincial Campsite called Parlee Beach. The campsite is about a 10 minute walk down to the ocean. The beach is located in a large...

Aug 22, 2012 - Cabot Trail & PEI

Monday we traveled the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We left Baddeck, NS in the rain and had rain and fog for the first half of the trail. We drove the loop counter-clockwise. Along the Trail we stopped at Wreck Cove General Store for coffee and a leg stretch. This store was in the middle of nowhere! I asked the storekeeper where they had to shop for food and supplies; they do full day trips to Sidney, NS, eating lunch and dinner out and go with a long list. He told how he loves living in the wilderness as there was so much to do...

Jul 21, 2012 - Shediac, New Brunswick

Fred was tired so I ran some errands today. Fred needed an Allen wrench to fix the handle for the TV antenna. So I went to the local Home Depot type store and got a set and then went to Costco. Found a few different things there. No wine, in New Brunswick they have liquor stores. Found some good pates and the meats looked better than home. Then I drove up the coast and visited Shediac. It is a darling little beach town. Lots of little cute shops. I lucked out, it was parks day in NB and entrance to the Provincial Beach Park was free. It was...

A very preventable accident on the truck stairs took out a participant that loved the ride! Someone needs to take ensure that the tour owners get this fixed. Tough day on the road as well! Terri, Fred and I agreed to sweep. Frosty from Australia also joined the sweep team. We missed one turn on the route which saved us...
