In the past 11 years we have spent some time in Quebec, New Brunswick, Cape Breton, Newfoundland and New England. We had not spent time on Prince Edward Island, nor had we done much more than travel through most of Nova Scotia. It's time to change that. There is also some symmetry to Spring on Canada's Pacific coast and Fall on the Atlantic coast. We'll show you what we see in these Maritime provinces, with maybe a bit of New Hampshire as well, on the way home. First photos should appear about September 20.
Day one was driving to Drummondville QC from our home in Aurora ON, and a very nice dinner that evening. Day two took us along the South Shore of the St Lawrence River to Mt Joli, and then over the Gaspe Peninsula to New Brunswick, along the Matapedia Valley ...a really nice drive.
After a couple of days of travel and photography I thought that we could do a 'Church Panel' of photographs. But the panel idea didn't work well within the page, so now the churches have their own .
Day 3 took us through New Brunswick (and a visit with Sam and Mary Howie) and across the 12km Confederation Bridge to PEI.
Breakfasts were great at the Charlotte Rose B&B in Charlottetown
The answer for the lady from New Hampshire is: 'Shredded Coconut'
This group was photographed from the Greenwich Dunes in the National Park to North Lake Harbour, the "Tuna Capitol of the World", to South Lake and then Basin Head, on Saturday, September 24. And you are only seeing a sample!
We gave ourselves 4 full days on PEI, mostly on the Eastern end and along the North coast. We saw a lot of the local roads ...and they are pretty good roads.
We took the Wood Island-Pictou ferry to Nova Scotia, and drove to Peggy's Cove for a great Sunday shoot. Terrific light! Then on to Oak Island for 4 nights.
On Monday, Sept 25 we photographed in Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. And we visited galleries and gift shops in both towns.
Woops! I came back to this web page in December of '06 to make some adjustments and discovered that I had (probably) deleted the last complete design. Not very smart. Then I discovered, when I went to the page in Portcullis* on the Internet, that only the 'parking page' was in place there. Bad! Shame on me.
I have re-created below a simpler version of the last part of the trip. All the photos were in an appropriate folder so it was easy to find them. You'll only miss the captions put in place at the time of original posting.
This block of photos is from Nova Scotia, Halls Harbour, Cape Blomidon, Mahone Bay, Digby.
These photos are from New Hampshire. We had a great drive up Mount Washington on a beautiful clear day!
