Sep 22, 2015 - Nova Scotia

We must be having too much fun. I've fallen behind a couple days. We left Baddeck Monday morning and drove about 45 minutes, took another small ferry to a town called Iona at the lower end of Bra d'or lake to the Highland Cultural village. It chronicles the life of the Scottish people by replicating or preserving the homes from before they left Scotland and why they left to the early 1900s. Every home had a character in them, dressed the part and very knowledgeable. Even speaking fluent Gaelic. They have them cooking stew on the wood stove...

Oct 20, 2013 - Blog Nine - Wolfville

BLOG NINE Post script to the Fundy Blog… We forgot to mention that our FPBs bought us a treat on the last communal fire pit night. They call them smores and they are very nice. You grab a stick and roast a marshmallow on it over the fire. While this is going on you grab a couple of Graham biscuits (these are a bit like a semi sweet shredded wheatmeal biscuit) and put a square of Herscheys chocolate between them. When the marshmallow is cooked and mostly melted you take it and place it between the biscuit thereby also melting the chocolate!...

Drove down to Chelton to check out the beach in daylight and then moved on to Summerside to pick up a few groceries. Bought some PEI potatoes  We headed over to Victoria-by-the-sea for a short visit before we took the bridge over to NB. The kids bought some candy and souvenirs and we got Jainalee a small lobster stuffie that said “Prince Edward Island” on it. We stopped at Fort Beausejour in NB before we moved on to Nova Scotia. Made it to Michelle Muise-Wight’s after supper and had time to visit. Zoey was very excited to meet us and the...

Aug 8, 2011 - Truro, NS to Nine Mile River, NS 30 miles

We moved to a little area called Nine Mile River. Yes, it is on a river and Bonnie got to play and swim in it. Our campground had sections and ours was called "Welcome to Graceland"! It rained pretty much the whole time we were there, but we are taking notes from the locals. We put out the awning and played dominoes while it rained all around us. It was great to get out in the air for a little while. We drove through beautiful farmland until we saw the Bay of Fundy and then amazing vineyards in Gaspereau Valley. We stopped in Wolfville for...

Jun 26, 2011 - Wolfville and Minas Basin

From Truro we headed down to Bridgetown just north of Annapolis Royal. We found a lovely small campground just by the river. This would be our third time in this area. The Annapolis Valley is a rich agricultural area. Our first day in the area saw us heading along the valley to Wolfville and the Minas Basin. Once known as Mud Creek (due to it being on the Bay of Fundy) and Horton, the town was renamed Wolfville in honour of Judge Elisha DeWolf in 1830.The town was an important shipbuilding location in the mid 19th century. The Windsor and...

Jul 3, 2010 - Off to Wolfville

We had a big breakfast this morning and met a couple from Toronto. Afterward, we checked out the Saturday morning market. There are always some neat things to buy but we are governed by suitcase availability! Afterward we spent nearly 2 hours in the Historical Gardens in Annapolis. They were beautiful and well worth a visit. We were on the road by noon. We traveled the shoreline route, making a stop at Halls Harbour to see the tides. When we arrived about 3pm, most of the boats were on dry sand. The big scallop boats were down there too and...

6/17 – 6/18 It was a 74 mile drive to Wolfville, Nova Scotia (PR215, PH14, PH101). We ended up staying in two locations for the two nights. The first night we were at the Gaspereau Vineyards parking lot and the second we stayed in the Home Depot lot in New Minas. That was after being told we could not stay at the Acadia University parking lot and a lot by the visitor’s center. We came to Wolfville to visit with Lucille and Jim who are our neighbors in Casa Grande, Arizona. While we were in the area we: >saw Steven Rhude’s Temple exhibit at...

Aug 18, 2008 - Another Travel Day

Monday morning we visited the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg and learned all about the parts of a lobster. The we drove north east to Grand-Pré, which tells the story of the expulsion and deportation of the Acadians in 1755. We stopped into an interesting place called "Tangled Garden" which grows and compounds gourmet jams, oils, and chutney. The store smelled amazing! They also have a labyrinth made of wild flowers and beautiful gardens. Closeby was the Grand-Pré winery, at which Niall enjoyed tasting their products. Five...

Sep 9, 2006 - Charlottetown to Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

Left PEI on the Confederation Bridge, a 10 mile long bridge between PEI and New Brunswick. It is really an engineering marvel. But as we left PEI, we felt it was closing to tourists. Many of the private campgrounds and Provincial and National Park campgrounds were closed, many restaurants were closed, tourist sites were closed and yet many people were complaining that tourism was slow this year....duh... Drove to Parrsboro, Nova Scotia to the Glascoop Campground run by the Town. It is a beautiful campground right by the bay. We have a...

Aug 20, 2004 - Wolfville

Today we visited the town of Wolfville. The town, home of Acadia University, is situated on the slopes of the Wolfville ridge, offering spectacular views of the Minas Basin, Blomidon, and the 17th century Acadian dykelands. The town is a charming university town with stately trees and beautiful heritage homes. Originally known as Upper Horton and Mud Creek, the town became Wolfville in 1830 when the granddaughters of Judge Elisha DeWolf convinced the postmaster, Elisha DeWolfe Jr. that a more suitable name was needed. As half of the...
