Kingston Ontario

We drove from Quebec City to Kingston, Ontario taking the Highway 30 bypass around Montreal. Highway 30 goes over Grand Ile where you first cross a 2.5 km bridge over the Beauharnois Canal and then a 1.8 km bridge over the St. Lawrence River (toll)  followed by a 100m  tunnel under the Soulange Canal. It was a quick, easy journey …

Quebec Canada

We made it to Quebec! We drove from Edmunston, New Brunswick to Quebec City passing through beautiful countryside along the St. Lawrence River and even passed an Accordion Museum. I wasn’t allowed to stop…something about not wanting to hear someone try and learn the accordion all the way across the country. Just nonsense!   We headed to the KOA Quebec …

de la Republique New Brunswick

Our plans had us going to the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec for 5 days and staying at Forillon National Park and driving almost 800 km. But time was getting short and we needed to be in Western Canada in less than a month and we still had lots of sightseeing, visiting, and moochdocking to get done. So, as usual, we …

We arrived into North Sydney, Nova Scotia from the overnight Newfoundland ferry and drove through Cape Breton to Caribou Munroes near Pictou, Nova Scotia. We passed, again, all the great signs that Nova Scotia has which are all different and unique.   We drove through Pictou and past the ferry to PEI and on to Caribou Munroes Provincial Park.   …

The drive from Terra Nova National Park to Butter Pot Provincial Park is only a few hours so we had a chance to stop by Canadian Tire and pick up some oil and an oil filter for our Sprinter oil change.  Along the way is some great town names such as Come By Chance along with a few nice lakes. …

Gander Newfoundland

We headed south from New World Island (near Twillingate) and on to Gander where we visited our nephew and loaded up on supplies (DEF for our diesel engine) at Canadian Tire. It was wonderful to see him and enjoy a fantastic meal at Rosie’s which included a Turkey Mess and Moose Farts! Yay!   Gander is known as the crossroads …

Hopewell Rocks New Brunswick

Welcome to New Brunswick! Alas, we made it. We entered New Brunswick from near Calais, Maine and crossed the border in minutes. Suddenly, we went from terrible roads in Maine to a nice smooth 4 lane highway. It was heaven!  We fueled up easily at one of the many petrol stations along the highway and we were off and running!! …

West Quoddy Lighthouse Lubec Maine

One of the reasons for staying at Cobscook Bay State Park was not only because it had great reviews but because it was on our way to the Maritimes and Newfoundland, it provided easy access to Lubec, Maine, the eastern most town in the USA, easy access to the the eastern most point at the West Quoddy Lighthouse, and also …
