John we stayed at Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds NE of Alma. It is on the Fundy Coast. There are Provincal Parks at Alma but I would avoid going south of town. We went through there in mid Aug. while traveling north to Alma. The road was under construction and was in terrible condition, I doubt that it is much better now.

Baylito99, thanks, also good to know about the roads...we are about maxed out on bumpy roads.

Is it better to stay up near Hopewell Rocks or in Fundy NP?

Now I get it. Alma, New Brunswick, not Alma, Nova Scotia. Great fish chowder in St. Martins, Rockwood Park for camping in Saint John and Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping in Saint Andrews.
Alma, NS came to mind because I currently have a labour force near there at a Pulp and Paper mill.
Have fun in the caves. Jim

Jim, thanks for clarifying. I thought maybe you had driven one too many times to Meat Cove!!!

We have also hit our share of rough roads. Have encountered plenty of road construction as well. Most areas were timed delays or lane shifts for paving. The road south of Alma,NB was terrible. They were cutting the grade substantially in both lanes at the same time, steep grades and loose rock and stone everywhere. Avoid this area.

Our stay in PEI. Camped at Red Point PP, St Peter Campground in St Peter's Bay, and Marco Polo Campground at Cavendish. All three campgrounds were good. Souris, St Peter's Bay and Cavendish are all neat towns. Cavendish could be real touristy if there before Labor Day. We caught a Ceilidh at Stanley Bridge, walked the beaches and had a good time. Spent a day in Charlottetown and enjoyed a great lunch at Merchat Man Pub. Got my cow chips at "Cows". Roads were all pretty good, fuel about the same as NS. It was a great visit.

Just checking the weather before I set off on my bike and I see that Saint John has made the national news due to the downpour that you are getting. Should keep the crowds away from Saint Andrews. Jim

We are up here in Nova Scotia as I type this! We have visited PEI, Cape Breton and are going down the east coast of Nova Scotia. Stop at the information booths. They will give you maps of all the Provincial Parks. Some have already closed for the season.
Can not help you with Newfoundland!

An unbelievable amount of rain in St John yesterday. We still ventured downtown to the City Market. Roads were beginning to flood and several wer closed due to the deep water. When we made it back to our campground at Rockwood Park, almost all the roads were under water. It was something. Rain and high winds continued all night, still raining when we woke up. Forecast did not show much improvement so we headed out to St Andrews...here it is blue skies, nice breeze, great campsite at Kiwanis Ocean View Campground. More later.

Spent two great days in St Andrew, rely neat town, and the Kiwanis campground is great,. We learned that the ferry had one more day of operation so we took it to Deer Island and Campobella. Did the FDR thing, walked the island a bit and camped at Herring Cove PP, biggest sites I have seen, at least in the middle loop. Very nice campground, electric only. We took the bridge to Lubec and stopped at Quoody Lighthouse, so back in the USA.

So our fantastic trip through the maritime islands is over (at least this trip).

We really had a great time...will catch up on some photos later....eh!

Sad to hear the trip is over. If you have enjoyed the experience half as much as I (and many others I suspect) have enjoyed reading about it then you must be tickled pink!

Hope to see you back here.

Don

It's really hard to believe that the all the roads were under water since most of St. John is on a slope. Good thing Rockwood Park is at the top of a hill.

I have never had good weather in St. John. We were there during the month of "Fogust". Couldn't see a thing. I spent a few weeks working there years ago in the winter and had 3 major snow storms during that time. We have also gone there to visit friends for the last 3. I just can't remember a time when the weather was nice. It's a good thing I don't need to live there.
