Hold on – it’s windy...

Today we packed up and said good-bye to Louisbourg, NS and headed to a new province – Prince Edward Island (PEI).  This also means a good portion of today would involve driving – so we set off early.  Unfortunately though, we picked quite a day to travel as it was really windy,...

Two nite, one free (...

So last night our plan to head to PEI was postponed as we were having ourselves a great time right where we were. Since we stayed for a second night at the park the third night was offered to us free. We decided to take advantage of this and stay put for one more night. Our new friends...

Time circuits on. Fl...

So today’s plan was to get to the Fortress of Louisbourg. However, in true fashion we did not get there until a very late hour as the morning was consumed with work! Nevertheless the very nice manager (Mary) of the park ensured we not miss this opportunity before we left as we hoped to...

Getting the chores d...

Today we were in search of a place to get to get the van’s oil changed as this would be the last major for a little while. We found a place that could take us at 2:30 so we had a bit of waiting around to do.. We decided to walk around and enjoy sunny warm Sydney a little bit and we...

Missed opportunities...

Today was one of those days where you figure things out a little too late… and it really sucks. I think the day started on a note that set the tone – At the site we stayed at we got a knock on our window around 11:30am and were told that checkout time was 11 and that it was time...

Crazy beautiful view...

A full day of driving today, and usually that can be pretty boring, but the endless views kept us guessing! As we’ve now seen a fair bit of coast in both in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia we know just how beautiful it can be, but on our trek to get to Cape Breton we experienced a stretch...

Life’s simple pleasu...

Today we set out for a good meal, preferably local, preferably seafood.  We weighed our options between some of the reputable lobster restaurants in the downtown core against a small set of shops and restaurants known as the Hydrostone Market. The Hydrostone District is a large part of...

Pedestrian Xing (i.e...

As we had previously been warned pedestrians rule the streets out East, they are liable to just step out wherever they want and you are going to have to stop. We had ample practice when we rolled in to Halifax on a Friday night were the streets were filled with lots of people headed out for a...

House of the rising ...

To kick off today we decided to get up before the sun to take advantage of some of the beautiful scenery of Fundy National Park and the opportune east facing shoreline. Driving a few minutes out of our campsite we stopped at a great little lookout spot, made some tea, and watched the sunrise....
