Jun 14, 2013 - Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada

Today was a fairly long day of driving. We drove 206 miles to the next campground. After we had driven approximately 100 miles we entered the providence of Nova Scotia. I thought the lupins were beautiful in New Brunswick but not in comparison to Nova Scotia. The lupins here grow wild along side the road out in the fields, kind of like our flock grows wild in New York State, but the lupins are much more colorful with the pink, purple and white flowers. Hopefully I'll get an opportunity to take a picture to include in the journal. Today is a...

Aug 22, 2012 - Highland Heart

Today’s journey took me to the eastern coast of the Northumberland Shores region of Nova Scotia known as the Highland Heart. My last trip up this way ended at the town of Pictou. Today I picked up the scenic Sunrise Trail just east of there, outside the town of New Glasgow. Situated on the banks of the East River, the historic downtown area still contains stout buildings constructed with blocks of red sandstone in the late 1800s. Leaving the city behind, I drove through the farming community of Merigomish where cornfield mazes stretched up...

Jul 27, 2012 - Going to Nova Scotia

Today we traveled from Brackley Beach,Prince Edward Island to Antigonish,Nova Scotia. We took a ferry ride to Nova Scotia that was about 80 minutes long. When we arrived there we went to the welcome center and got great info. Then we headed over to the market before we drove to the campground in Antigonish. Ate dinner at the trailer. I logged on to the KOA campgrounds website and was able to get a good campsite in North Sydney near the start of the Cabot Trail. So we are set for tomorrow.

Jul 16, 2012 - New Brunswick to Antigonish, NS

Today we're staying in the Town of Antigonish which was incorporated in 1889. Established as the Highland Heart of Nova Scotia, Antigonish is the home of the oldest continuously run Scottish Highland Games in North America. Antigonish is a Mi'kmaq name and, depending upon whom you ask, has two quite distinct meanings: 1. The place where the branches are torn off by bears gathering beechnuts. or 2. Meeting place of five forked rivers. Well, we got out close to time. It was overcast and off and on we had light rain. Terrain has changed. It...

Jul 14, 2011 - 6 Yrs in the Making

Finally the Antigonish Highland Games didn't fall on my daughters birthday party weekend. It took 6 yrs but the weekend is finally upon us. We couldn't get the campsite right in downtown Antigonish as it's booked years ahead because of the games. The closest one we were able to find was Hyclass Ocean Campground and was about 1/2 drive from downtown. Check out our blog for the entire story.

Jun 10, 2011 - Antigonish, NS, Canada

Friday was a travel day so I have a included photo of how Trip travels. Once we arrived at the campground we had a cold front come through. I included this photo of Trip and me so that my Florida friends and family would be envious. The only problem we have had so far it that Clarence ran over a boulder in the campground. Another caravaner, Tony, stayed back and helped shovel us out of our situation. Too bad there are no photos to be published on the Florida Ramblers website. It would have been entertaining although it was not so much fun...

Aug 1, 2010 - Overnight stop

We spent the night in Antigonish, NS. We had a pizza (no threat to Pietro’s) at the Wheel Pizza & Subshop. The best part of the meal was looking at all of the pictures on the walls of the place. Lot’s of autographed pictures of NHL hockey players that the owner Mike Hassid knows. There are also pictures of people with Wheel Pizza boxes all over the world – Times Square, Khandahar, Afghanistan, Fenway Park, Fiji, etc. There were a couple of pictures of the Stanley Cup in the shop when it visited Antigonish. It was scheduled to be revisit the...

Jul 31, 2010 - Saturday Antigonish, NS

Another easy drive along the TransCanadian Highway brought us to our campground in the middle of the city of Antigonish. As soon as we departed the highway, we were next to a beautiful campus of St Francis Xavier University. We believed this started out as a school for young mutants and grew to its current size. From the local guidebook: “The school inspires fierce loyalty among its students and alumni. Football games draw out the whole community to cheer on their beloved X-Men.” After maneuvering thru the city and the apartment area...

The Trip of 2010

Jul 29, 2010 - Antigonish, NS - Whidden Park Campground

Our drive today was another wet one. The good Lord seems to know when we are traveling and wants to make sure Libby gets a mud bath as she trails behind. :) It was our longest drive in some time, 144 miles, but only took us three hours due to the excellent roads. We arrived a little after noon and were quickly set up. We have 30 amp full hookups but will only be using the electricity since we will be in another full hookup tomorrow. I got the satellite sighted in but we are starting to get too far North to get a good signal. We get ESPN and...

Jul 8, 2010 - Back to Nova Scotia

Our last morning in PEI. Sadly, our time has come to an end here. Wish now we would have planned an extra day as it really is a lovely place. Some different things as well; their red lights are square, their amber lights are diamond shape and green are round. You don’t pay anything to come onto the island, either across the bridge or on the ferry; you only pay when you leave; $42 for bridge, $74 for ferry. Takes no time to get around places as well. We had a reservation for 1pm on the Northumberland Ferry at Woods Island so left North...
