Goodbye Nova ScotiaPosted: June 11, 2012
M and I left the Cape Breton Highlands of Nova Scotia this morning. I didn’t want to leave. I love it there. Love it. I want to live there, and we were told by some of the very friendly folks we met there that we were welcome and they’d take care of us if we did decide to relocate.
Alas, we couldn’t stay with so much more planned for our vacation so we left early this morning and we’re now back in New Brunswick just for the night. We’ll be the dazed and confused people up at 4:45 tomorrow morning to see the Tidal Bore on the Petitcodiac River in Moncton.
We saw a few moose, some eagles, a crow eating a snake for breakfast (this morning), more of those cute little red squirrels, loons, and I can’t remember what all else right now. My brain and body are exhausted.
Apologies to Jane and Joss for not getting in touch. We found out upon crossing the border between the U.S. and Canada that our cell phones don’t work in Canada. Our time in Nova Scotia was spent unplugged — no phone, no internet. Add to that packed days (lots of hiking) and there just hasn’t been enough time. I’m amazed at how fast time has been flying by, even with that lost hour when we went from Eastern Time to Atlantic Time early in our trip.
We’re on our way to Maine tomorrow (another 6 hours or so in the car — ugghh!). I’m not looking forward to the car ride, but can’t wait to explore Acadia National Park.
I’m off to bed. We have that early wake-up call tomorrow (M really wants to see the Tidal Bore and since I woke him up to see the magnificent sunrises in South Harbor, the least I can do is get up to see the Tidal Bore), and the car trip. Hard to believe all that sitting can make one so tired. At least we got in a decent hike this morning before we hit the road.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope all is well with you. See you from Maine!
