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...

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...
