Victoria Day Long Weekend, 2017

Arrived at Plantation Campsite (just outside Berwick, NS) Settled into a pull through site and got out the BBQ for the first camp meal of the year. When we arrived about 3:15 the seasonal people were organized and enjoying the afternoon, but around us it was fairly empty. By about 5:00 the campsite looked full with a few stragglers arriving later in the evening. tide out Harbourville 1 Took a stroll after dark and many folks gathered around campfires catching up for the start of the season. This morning, sunny and the kids were about playing in the campground, biking and lots of people walking their dogs.

Headed to the shore, just over the North Mountain and viewed those Bay of Fundy tides. If you have never seen those, it is well worth a visit to see the tide go in and out. Took some shots of the boats at the Harbourville wharf at low tide, they aren’t going anywhere right now!horses against the Bay 6

The views of the Blomidon Peninsula are specular here and we managed to catch 2 horses in a field against the backdrop.  

And as any traveller knows, it is always the unexpected that you are looking for…as we were driving a gentleman stopped us to warn us to be careful as a pair of Canada Geese and their goslings were walking up the road. We managed to spot them as they were walking from the creek to (we assume) the farm they were from.  Canada geese

We enjoyed the Planation Campsite, well run and certainly active with lots of events. It seems to be a family orientated campsite with lots of kids playing in the playground and riding on bikes and trikes. Drove past a washer toss game Saturday afternoon.

Also, visited the ForeverGreen Campground, just off Mountain Brow Rd. The owner told us she started the campsite with only 7 campers 15 years ago and now there are 143 campsites and they have plans to develop more sites. Driving through the campsite, busy with sites full. A kid’s playground with a large pirate boat and a pool.

Enjoyed our first camp weekend and planning the next trip.
