Jul 29, 2017 - Linwood, NS.

We are now at Linwood Harbour Campground. Very small and rural with only 37 sites, but nice and clean. It has filled up since we setup. Our satellite doesn't work here and we are only able to get one TV station. Our plan was to stay in and rest before we went exploring the next day. We went out for dinner, after driving for a while we found the only 2 restaurants in the area. Subway, and a Gas Station/Truck Stop. The truck stop restaurant advertised fresh Lobster, we picked that one. The dining area was in back with a view of The Strait of...

Jun 21, 2017 - Linwood Harbour Campground (6/20 - 6/21/17)

We arrived in Nova Scotia on Tuesday. Mark off another province of Canada! Our drive was only 196 miles. On the way we drove through Oxford, NS which is the "Blueberry Capital of Canada". We are going to have get some of these blueberries while we are here. I would love to make a blueberry cobbler. We found Linwood Harbour Campground to be a very nice place. We were in site #10, a pull-through. Our view was of woods in front and a lovely little bay off to the side. The proprietors were extremely friendly and accommodating. There was a nice...

Aug 23, 2013 - Lower Barney's River to Linwood

day 11 Woke to find storms passing to the North and South of us. 50km/hr winds to start the day. My blue pad was blown out of the tent vestibule and got caught in bushes just short of the ocean. 5 of us took optional short cut so we could, hopefully, get to camp before forecasted afternoon thunder showers. Tim thought he took the wrong turn to get back on the main route. He stopped to get directions and was given confirmation he was going the right way. Later he wasn't seeing the cue sheet land marks so he continued until he found someone...

Aug 19, 2013 - Lower Barney's River (NS) to Linwood (NS)

We all took a leisurely approach to today, as we had decided the night before to opt for a shorter and easier ride so that we would be rested for the following day's expected 160+ km ride into North Sydney. I awoke at 5:15 am, had breakfast, and set off at just before 7:00 am. The recommended route had us continuing along Highway 245 to Malignant Cove, then taking Highway 337 past Cape George Point and Ballantyne's Cove into Antigonish. From there we were to take Highway 104, then Old Highway 4 past Afton, Tracadie and Monastery into...

Aug 19, 2013 - Taking a Break

August 19 & 20 – We are taking off again, heading northwest . We are leaving Cape Breton Island and moving on to the mainland of Nova Scotia. The campground has a really nice view of the Bay but there isn’t too much happening in this area. We were supposed to stay 3 days but are only staying 2 instead. We took care of a lot of housekeeping chores and relaxed a little. It was nice to lay back for a couple of days.

Jul 6, 2008 - Antigonish Nova Scotia

Today we travelled on the Trans Canada until we came to a toll booth then veered towards the coast where the scenery was. When we got to Antigonish we found out that the toll was only $4 but Marion was much happier on the coast road anyway. Trees she sees in B.C. We parked at Wal Mart and got out our chairs and had happy hour. Then another couple from Halifax joined us and we learned so much about where to go. Never thought we'd have cocktail hour in a Wal Mart parking lot! It got very hot and humid but it cooled off nicely for the night.
