Jul 11, 2012 - Sherbrooke. These photos are for you Marilyn G.

We left Halifax later in the afternoon and arrived at the picnic pull off a little later than we normally would. We were all alone for the night, well, us the howling coyotes. The next day we took the short drive to Sherbrooke to take a few photos. I sure it has changed since time has past. I hope you enjoy them Marilyn.

Jun 9, 2011 - Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia

SHERBROOK VILLAGE Sherbrooke Village is about 150 miles northeast of Halifax, near the coast. It’s a very special place to visit. However, since there are no accommodations in the area, we stopped for a couple of hours to tour it on our way to our next stop and were glad we did. Sherbrooke Village depicts a typical Nova Scotian village from 1860 to World War I. With 80 buildings, 25 of which are open to the public most with costumed interpreters, it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site. What is quite unique is that this is the original...

Aug 22, 2010 - Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia

Saturday, August 21st – Halifax (Peggy’s Cove), Nova Scotia A free day for the Tracker’s! Everyone went in different directions, but not our direction. Up the road a bit is a small marina & from there we had the most fabulous 2 hr kayak ride in the bay. I must say it is the roughest water we have kayaked in but it was glorious. Weather was perfect, minimal clouds, clear skies, and good breezes. Then we had lunch at the Subway Sandwich Restaurant there. I had a lobster sub! I guess these are not uncommon on the east coast in the summer but...

Jul 27, 2010 - Sherbrooke

It was a fairly short drive from Halifax to Sherbrooke, but on some of the worst roads we’ve traveled, especially the part that was under construction and we were on the road bed for ages. That was bad. We arrived at a very small RV Park, but he had spaces big enough for us – only water and electricity, which OK because we were only there for one night. It should have been more, there was so much to do in the area. We first went back into town to see the water-powered sawmill we’d passed just up the road from the RV Park. What a treat that...

Jul 18, 2010 - Drive to Stillwater, Nova Scotia

Drove the RV to Stillwater, Nova Scotia today for an overnight stay at a cute campground on a lake. Along the way we stopped at Memory Lane Heritage Village, a museum village showing life in Nova Scotia in the 40s and 50. It wasn’t anything special, but it was a good break from driving. The Tracks leaders cooked a spaghetti dinner for everyone and we all brought the appetizers, salads and desserts. Everything was delicious and we ate too much. After dinner we played a few games of Track-O. It is similar to Bingo, but instead of a Bingo card...

The Sherbrooke Village Restoration Area was established in 1969 to show what life was like in the 1800’s when lumber was king along the St Mary’s River. In 1861 gold was discovered and for 20 yrs it was a boom town. After that it went back to fishing and lumber town and continued until present. I hope you enjoy the photos of life as it was. The old phones still work.

Jul 25, 2006 - Sherbrooke, NS - Sherbrooke Village Restoration

We drove about 140 miles today from Halifax to Sherbrooke. Most of the drive took us along Marine Drive with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, quaint little villages, picturesque churches, antique shops, and more. The road was very rough and winding, but it was worth the trip. We arrived at Nimrod Campground to find it quite wet and one of our travel companions got stuck in the mud. Another truck hauled him out and we all got parked and headed off for Sherbrooke Village. Sherbrooke Village, situated along the banks of the St. Mary's...
