Have you ever seen such a spacious Seasonal Campground. The Overnight part of their name is in brackets as that is only temporary. They have only been open for a year and only had 4 spots left. That is while we were there and may have changed by now.
If you are looking for a seasonal site between Tatamagouche and River John just over the Pictou county line than this may be the spot for you.

Well here we are at All Done Camping RV Campground.
Believe me we were so surprised when we got here.
This is a campground that caters to the empty nesters and adult population.
What an amazing time we are having here not a boring moment I will say.
Thanks Willa and Calvin

We had a wonderful time at the Ridge Valley Campground just outside of Digby.
On Saturday We took two Ferry rides. one to get on Long Island and one to get on to Briar Island. Both Islands are amazing and I am sure you will hear more from Karen on this subject.
On Sunday we went to Digby and tried out the Scallops at the Sydney St Pub and Cafe and am sure we will be back. The water front was very busy with all the Canada Day festivities Live Music , Car Show, and contests on the water.
All in all a very satisfying weekend.
Well we are off again. Leaving today to Camp at South Mountain Park Campground located on the #12 Hwy just a few kilometers from Kentville headed to New Ross.
We are excited to see the campground with the largest campground pool in Nova Scotia as well as the local tourist attractions.
Tomorrow we plan to take a run to check out New Ross Farm which is down the road a ways.
We are told it is a fantastic place to go. I am sure New Ross Farm Museum will be a subject in Karen's blog for sure.
Gary and I love going out for breakfast! So what better way to kick off early spring then going for a ride and "do" breakfast.
Easter Weekend we headed to Digby, Nova Scotia and heading into Digby we found Josie's Place, with a front sign all day breakfast. It doesn't get better than that so we took a chance and Josie's Place turned out to be an excellent choice. A good breakfast menu, prices seemed a little high until we realized the price included coffee or tea (refills on the coffee). The food and service is great
From the outside it looks like the usual diner but inside, the restaurant is bright and well decorated with brightly painted murals on the walls of fishing boats and water-- Digby is about the scallop fishing. Also unique are the original whimsical wood carvings created by Tracie Dugas Weymouth NS.
Drop by and try it out!
Yesterday, on a roll with breakfast we stopped in at the Capital Pub in Middleton Nova Scotia. We have visited here before numerous times for supper and our first time for breakfast. Originally the movie theater, Capital Pub remembers its beginnings with a sketched mural of old film stars and an old style projector as you enter the pub section (there is also a restaurant area). We enjoy the ambiance of the pub with its propane stove blazing in the winter. Another good place to eat.
Visited a place I had heard a lot about because of the tragedies the community faced, Springhill Nova Scotia. This was a mining community until the last disaster in 1958 where 75 miners died in a “bump” another 99 trapped and rescued.
This was the third of mining disasters including two explosions in 1891 and 1956. Both as the one in 1958 leading to death and heroic rescue.
The Springhill Miner’s Museum is a must visit. Lots of artifacts, newspaper reports, surface buildings to visit and a chance to go underground into one of the mine shafts with knowledgeable tour guides who know a lot of history about miner’s life and the disasters.
Also take the time to visit the miner's memorial in Springhill dedicated to the miners who died in these disasters and the men who died in single incidents. There wasn’t a year that went by that a name isn’t listed.
The photo was taken in the miner's wash house, Miner's Museum and shows how they hung their clothes from the rafters.
A couple of days ago, we visited what I would consider a landmark of New Brunswick – its covered bridges. We found three, down back roads, dirt roads and a few times Gary worried about getting stuck! Finding them is half the fun.
Look for the blog to be written soon…photos and more history of the bridges
Visiting Lighthouses in PEI, September 6, 2017
Spent a sunny late morning and afternoon visiting 3 lighthouses along the shore of Green Gables tourist shoreline. Unlike many of the lighthouses highlighted in my blogs, these are not open to the public. Still worth the visit as they are all on beautiful coastlines and ohh—those ocean beaches that PEI is famous for.
Covehead Harbour Lighthouse, still active with an electric beacon is located within Prince Edward Island National Park. Overlooking a fantastic sand beach, this lighthouse sits within the fragile dunes.
North Rustico Lighthouse, and moving along the coast, the next 2 lighthouses sit in more isolated areas. The New London Lighthouse, decommissioned, and the last lighthouse we visited today was Cape Tryon Lighthouse sits beside a hay field on a rocky bluff, still an active lighthouse.
Along the way we stopped at By the River Bakery in Cavendish where they served all day breakfast along with lunch and also picnic baskets for the beach. Breakfast was really good, reasonably priced and the service was excellent.
Watch for the blog with photographs and whatever history I can find…. along with St. Peter’s Harbour Lighthouse
