Are passports required to enter Canada (in case you did not bring them)?

Happy Trails.

Hi Peter,

We have been thinking about going over into New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. You do now need a Passport to return from Canada. We do have our Passport Cards with us.

FYI PEI has the warmest ocean water north of Cape Hatteras, due to an eddy off the Gulf Stream, so it is possible to swim there. Not so in Maine . . . Brrrrrr . . .

Great beaches too.

Have fun!

Peter

Not much to report today. We have decided to make a foray into Canada starting tomorrow. We spent most of the morning planning routes and arranging for campgrounds. We hope to make it to a Canadian National Park on the eastern tip of Nova Scotia. This park is rumored to harbor large numbers of Mooses. We aim to find out.

We spent the afternoon taking on supplies and making another trip down to the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. We bought several containers of freshly picked Lobster. We returned to Lucy late this afternoon and tried some of the Lobster to make sure that it was good. It was very good. The other lobster packages are in Lucy's freezer to enjoy on our out of country adventure.

We have already started to prepare Lucy for travel.

Tonight's pictures include:

- View from the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound overlooking Frenchman Bay.
- Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound.

Just caught up with you. Lots of memories of places I have lived and places I've been. I've been on just about every mile of US 11 starting in 1951. I also remember the traffic on that interstate from Pt. Jervis to Connecticut in 2008 and how I had forgotten about traffic in the northeast.

Good moose luck.

Gene

Definitely yes on the passports Brian, unless you both have enhanced drivers licenses.

PEI is wonderful. My mother's family was from there so we went every year for a long time. We went back a couple of years ago, after about 20 years away. Like most places, the big city sprawled, but the rest of the island hasn't changed much.

We stayed at the KOA just outside of Charlottetown. I'm usually not a big fan of KOA's but this was a beauty. We took a site right on the water in our brand new 25' FC. Within a day that entire row of sites along the water (nicely spaced) was taken up by 25' Airstreams and one 27'. And only two of them were traveling together.

After five nights in Ellsworth, Lucy packed up this morning and we headed out east across the rest of Maine and into Canada. We crossed into Canada this afternoon at St. Stephen, New Brunswick. We continued across the Provence of New Brunswick to Moncton where we got Lucy settled into a campground for the night. Tomorrow we expect to cross into Nova Scotia.

Now that we have crossed into Canada, our emails are dependent upon having wifi access. There may be some skipped days if we cannot get on the internet. We lost an hour and are now in the Atlantic time zone. Telephone access may be sketchy also.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Fred and the Girls all set to take off this morning.
- Victorian home in Hancock, Maine.
- Dock in Whiting, Maine that rises almost 20 feet with the tide.
- The 1860 Redclyffe Hotel in Robbinston, Maine.
- Approaching Canada Customs in St Stephen, New Brunswick.
- Coming into dense fog on New Brunswick Highway 1.
- Downtown St. John, New Brunswick in thick fog.
- The fog finally lifted east of St. John.
- RCMP Patrol Car at a rest stop.
- Fred and the girls settling in at the campground in Mocton, New Brunswick.

Wow, four lane highway. I don't remember that when we were there in 2004. Not sure that is progress.

Are you going to see the tidal bore in Moncton?

In Halifax, there is a good museum downtown. I think it is billed as a nautical museum and it has (or had) a section on a munitions explosion during World War I in the harbor. Devastated half the city. Halifax is quite attractive city on a great harbor.

Great music scene in Halifax echoing a lot of Appalachian themes, or maybe it is the other way around . . . as the music came from Europe by sea both to the Canadian maritime provinces, and also to the mid-Atlantic coast of what is now the US. [Jamestown, Williamsburg, Plymouth MA etc.]

Both bodies of music rooted in the Gaelic/Irish/Scottish traditions . . .

What a world!

Happy Trails,

Peter

Hi Gene,

No, we are going to skip the sights in Moncton and head out to Cape Breton National Park. We were able to get a campsite near the park this coming weekend. We were lucky to get this as it is the Canada Day Holiday Weekend. We're skipping Halifax for the time being.

We broke camp in New Brunswick this morning in a steady rainfall, and continued east into Nova Scotia. It rained on us just about all day. We took some of the back roads along the coast, but since it was raining, we went back over to the main highway.

We arrived at Lucy's campground in the early evening. Lucy covered right at 200 miles today. We had to set her up in the rain. Our campsite has a water view, but we couldn't sit out to enjoy it. We have now settled in for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Roadside vegetable truck in Moncton.
- The first sign that Mooses could be present.
- Windmills in Nova Scotia.
- Arriving at the Nova Scotia Welcome Center.
- Downtown Amherst, Nova Scotia.
- Wallace, Nova Scotia fishing fleet.
- Coming into Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.
- Antigonish, Nova Scotia in the pouring rain.
- Sign for wild blueberry packing plant near Linwood, Nova Scotia.
- Lucy's waterfront campsite in Linwood, Nova Scotia.

Great read Brian. For us following along this trip is good as are planning an eastern seaboard trip this fall but it will be from north to south. Not south to north as your heading
Cheers
Doug

Lucy Has Escaped!

Looks like like that poor moose on the sign may have hurt his right front leg. It appears to be bending like a human knee, not a moose elbow.
