East Coast Trips

Our trip to the East Coast of Canada in June 2009 started at the Halifax Airport where Harold and Diane Miller met us to take us on a tour of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island on the Cabot Trail and Cape Breton Highlands National Park. We spent an enjoyable day in Baddeck, Nova Scotia to see the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and to watch an air show commemorating the 100th anniversary of flight.  We travelled to Pictou where we took the ferry to Prince Edward Island, had a tour of Charlottetown, and the next day travelled the country roads to the Green Gable Shore to see the area that Lucy Maud Montgomery made famous in her book Anne of Green Gables.  That evening we had tickets for Anne the Musical which we thoroughly enjoyed.  We continued our journey through the quaint villages of P.E.I. to Summerside, then on to Gateway Village at the base of the Confederation Bridge which we drove across into New Brunswick for a short drive back into Nova Scotia.  We had time to see some of Amherst before night closed in.

Our trip in 2002 for our 30th Anniversary to Newfoundland started in St. John’s at Signal Hill and continued through Gander, Grand Falls, Kings Point, to name a few of the villages we travelled through.  We spent a day hiking in Gros Morne National Park.  On our way back to the airport, our trip was not complete until we had visited Bonavista, the name sung for years in the song This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land.
