Sep 16, 2018 - Cavendish, PEI to Sussex, NB

September 16, 2018 Not going to Halifax for 2 days, having camp booked in Acadia National Park 9/19 and wanting to visit the Roosevelt International Park (Campobello, NB) provided some guidelines for where we would go next. Bob found what looked like a nice KOA in Sussex which is about 3 hours drive. Sussex ( dairy community) is known for its 16 covered bridges, covered to protect the wood and floors from the elements. The GPS took us through all sorts of tiny PEI roads that wandered through rolling fields until we got to the confederation...

Sep 18, 2017 - another little gem

Today we are going to try one more quick hike before checkout so we jump up and hit the ground running…….and we are the first car at the parking lot!!! This hike is supposed to be along a steep ravine with a disappearing stream. It sounded intriguing as we had seen a very beautiful disappearing river in the Able Tasman area while visiting New Zealand. This hike goes straight down for 25 minutes so we know coming back is going to be ugly. We reach the bottom only to find a sign explaining that the stream actually dries up completely in...

Aug 17, 2013 - Saint John to Sussex

The morning started out typically cold and foggy for the coast. A few hills encountered to find our way out of the city. Steepest one so far was this morning at 16%. Very soon the route found us rolling along the Kennebecasis river in sunshine and warm temperatures. It was very pleasant as the dairy farms became more plentiful. An expressway bypass has made traffic non-existent on this stretch. Upon crossing the freeway to go through Sussex, a traffic jam started and did not end until passing the fair grounds at the far end of town 4...

Aug 14, 2013 - Fredericton (NB) to Sussex (NB)

The group awoke early, and we were all ready to leave by 6:00 am. Rather than wait until the University of New Brunswick's cafeteria opened at 7:30 am, we headed into town and stopped at Cora's for breakfast. We were finished eating and on our way by 7:00 am. The recommended route had us taking Highway 105 along the North shore of the Saint John River for 50 km past Maugerville and McGowans Corner, over the Jemseg River and onto Highway 695 for 35 km to Springfield, then onto Highways 124 and 114 past Norton and Apohaqui to Sussex, where we...

Aug 12, 2012 - On The Road To The U.s.

Sunday, still raining. We decided we had to try a McLobster before we left Nova Scotia. Must say they were pretty good. Hit the grocery store and back to RV's to get ready to head south tomorrow. Monday we said good bye to rainy Halifax. Heading back to the US of A. Will take us a couple days. First day of driving we again were "Wal-Martians" in Sussex, New Brunswick. Echo and I quickly realized that there was a small mall next to the parking lot. Off we went to check it out. There was a walk-in beauty shop. Echo was wanting a hair cut...

Aug 12, 2012 - Bay of Fundy

Oh me, oh my! Trip Journal just timed out and I lost all of the first entry I just typed. Second try. We paid for a second night here at Three Bears RV Park, left the mh, and started out for the day's activities in the pick up. We drove south about 25 miles to Fundy National Park at the city of Alma, NB. We drove in a light mist all the way to Fundy. The closer we got to the coast the more fog! At the visitor center we were enouraged to hike to Bennett Falls. By this time it was so foggy the coast couldn't been seen. We could see that the...

Aug 11, 2012 - Looking for Goldilocks? ***Three Bears Camping Park

Ok..I couldn't resist. We are staying in the "Three Bears Camping and RV Park". Don't you think we should look for Goldlilocks???? We left Lubec Maine this morning in a mist of drops and fog, driving on Highway 1 into New Brunswick, Canada. Highway 1 becomes TransCanada Highway 1 and is 4-lane most of the way, and in fairly good shape. We stopped at an information center just west of the city of St. John and learned about the "Reversing Falls" in St. John. At the next exit we were just a few blocks from the "falls". Directly under the...

Canada & USA Journey

Jul 18, 2010 - New Brunswick

Here I am back in Canada again but at least they are speaking English. Last night I spent in Stratton, Maine just 30 miles in from the Quebec border. I am right by the Bay of Fundy which I will check out in the morning. High tide about 0640 and low about 1310 so I should see some action. Should be somewhere in Nova Scotia tomorrow. Bye, DLS

Jul 3, 2009 - Sussex, NB

A low pressure has parked off the coast and brings cold winds and rain to the St Andrews area. We decided to move closer to Halifax, Nova Scotia since we have tickets to the military tattoo on Monday night. We parked near Sussex, New Brunswick at a good campground with very friendly folks.

Jun 25, 2009 - Sussex, NB - The Fundy Trail

(Ron Writing) We left Saint John, NB this morning heading east on Highway 111 to St. Martins. There we stopped at the visitor information building to get a map before continuing east on the Fundy Trail Parkway. The parkway extends about 7 miles right along the Bay of Fundy. This road is much like the Blue Ridge Parkway in that it was built simply for pleasure driving. They’re still working on it and eventually they plan to have it extend all the way to Fundy National Park. It’s a nice slow drive with many parking spots, viewpoints, picnic...

Jun 21, 2009 - Long train running

After eating at Smitty's (Got $7.50 free voucher for next time as fathers day) pulled into the trailer park in Sussex. Next door to drive in movie. Not sure what was playing as it was a bit dark on the screen and didn't have the speakers to hear it. Still a bit grim here. Rain at least as subsided, and the wind not so strong. Forecast for this weather until mid next week so we think that we might push on past the Bay of Fundy and catch it on the way back. In the middle of the night were heard the freight train roll along the campground (had...
