Animal Adventure Park

I visited the Animal Adventure Park today and saw April the Giraffe, Oliver (dad), and their baby Tajiri. The Park is nicely done.  The animals look healthy, the environment is well maintained, and the animals have enrichment programs.  There is also nice landscaping around…

Back in the USA!

We are back!  The first thing I did was turn on the data to my cell phone.  The world is now at my finger tips! Then, we drove to a truck stop, pulled into the truck gas pump, and filled up both tanks.  Aaah….

Quebec City, Very Pretty

Our original plans were to go from Riviere-du-Loup to the Thousand Islands, but that is a long drive in one day.  We decided to break up the trip by stopping at Quebec City.  It is about 130 miles between Riviere-du-Loup and Quebec city and…

The Old Man

We drove north along the shore of the St. Lawrence River to visit the Kiskotuk Park.  We passed many farms.  There was a crop growing with yellow flowers and it was stunning to see.  We stopped at several observation platforms that looked out over…

Francais

We left St. John to head toward Quebec.  Oh my.  My six years of French is not adequate for this.  Once we got to Quebec, all the signs were in French.  In the other provinces, the signs are in both languages so I was…

Dart – The Attractor

We are camped in St. John, so we spent the day mostly in the city.  I wanted to get my hair cut.  I tried to get it cut in Nova Scotia, but the only local hair salon said they didn’t take walk-ins and couldn’t…

Encounter with a Groundhog (Marmot)

I wish I hadn’t said anything negative about our Halifax area campground.  We arrived in our new campground this afternoon.  Although the park is nice, the campground is not very nice.  The bad news is that this is the worst campsite we have ever…

Halifax Area

Note to my personal trainer:  Please don’t read this post. We are staying in a campground about 25 kilometers from Halifax.  We originally planned to go into the city but decided not to do that with the dog.  A local I met in Shediac…

Leaving Cape Breton

We left Cape Breton and headed to the Halifax area.  We had great luck with the weather while in Cape Breton.  The mosquito abatement plan continues to be effective.  Buy an expensive screened room to keep away from the bugs and they disappear so…

Hike Up Broad Mountain

BY Regis Our last day on Cape Breton Island was fairly lazy. Cleaned up the RV a little, drove up the coast to check out some scenic overlooks, and most important, stopped at a little bakery/cafe Linda found on the way back from whale…

Pilot Whales

I went out on another whale tour out of Bay St. Lawrence.  I went on a boat named Oshan.  I thought it was another way to spell Ocean but it is a Gaelic term meaning “standing tall or above”.  It is operated by a…

Middle Head

We took a hike Wednesday that turned out to be one of our favorite hikes.  It wasn’t very long, only 2.4 miles round trip.  The hike was to Middle Head at Igonish, Nova Scotia.  There were fantastic water views and wildlife.  We saw lots…
