The Evangeline Trail

Today was pretty much overcast and cool, we had a few drops of rain when we were at Yarmouth, then the sun came out on the way home and it was really nice.

We drove the Evangeline Trail from here to Yarmouth, what a pretty, scenic drive through mostly Acadian Nova Scotia. We went through lots of pretty little towns, saw a lot of interesting wharfs with large fish processing plants and a couple of majestic churches with awesome spires.

Interesting Yard Decorations

We stopped in one little town and walked down to the beach, the air temperature was 19 and the water was 16 but there were still quite a few people on the beach and in the water – brrrrr, much braver souls than us!

We stopped in Yarmouth for lunch and did a bit of grocery shopping then it was back home on Hwy. 101, not nearly as scenic a drive as the Evangeline Trail but much faster.

The internet is sort of working tonight so I managed to get yesterday’s blog posted but don’t know if it will last long enough to do todays.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.

Truro to Annapolis Royal

Yesterday was a cool, wet day so we didn’t do much – got caught up on laundry, cleaning and reading.

Today was cloudy first thing but by 10 am the sun had come out and it turned into a lovely day with temperatures in the low 20’s. We drove the scenic route from Truro to Annapolis Royal, the Glooscap Trail along the Minas Basin, a very scenic drive. The tide was out so lots of wet sand.

Views Along the Way

We got set up at Dunromin Campground at Annapolis Royal then took a drive into town, it is a pretty town with a lot of historical buildings so will go in another day and walk around and check things out.

The internet here is typical – not good, so I don’t know if I will be able to get this posted without going up to the office, if I have to go up there it won’t be done until tomorrow as I am settled in for the evening.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.

Whycocomagh to Truro

Yesterday was a quiet day, I was quite tired so we just took it easy for the day, in the afternoon we went out and fuelled up then stopped at the Farmer’s Market where I got a new rug for the entry to the trailer and John bought me an ice cream cone – yum. I got my blog and pictures done from Saturday and our trip around the Cabot Trail.

Today was a travel day, but not a real long one, we are at Scotia Pine Campground just south of Truro. We got here in lots of time to get set up and then go into Truro to see the tidal bore, we also decided to stay for two nights and go into Halifax for the day tomorrow.

Scotia Pine Campground

We keep saying what a small world this is and today was another example. When we got back from going into Truro we had new neighbours from Ontario so I started talking to the fellow and asked where they were from, turns out they are from Bradford/West Gwillimbury and his sister was a member of council when I was treasurer for West Gwillimbury and we know many people he knows.

The wi-fi here isn’t good so I don’t know if I will get this posted tonight, we sure are getting frustrated with the wi-fi in the parks, when you check in they say sure we have wi-fi, but, it isn’t working very good for some reason or another – grrrr!

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.

The Cabot Trail

Today was a gorgeous day, sunny and bright but not too hot, a perfect day for touring the Cabot Trail. We picked Nancy & Dave up about 9:30 and headed out and had a great day with lots of sight seeing stops, checked out a few stores, had a nice lunch with a great view and ended up back at their park where we had dinner in the park restaurant.
