From Maine, I headed into Canada. I was a bit concerned about the border crossing having read a couple of horror stories (border agents going through the RV), but most people said they went through with no problem other than the wait at the border. So I get to the border check point--
There is nobody in line! The plan was while waiting in line to dig my passport out. Oh well!
Speed limit –Wow that’s fast -
Ok, that’s in kilometers. Which is about 68 mph! I am going to have to get used to this.
I am basically just passing through New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, but I stayed 2 nights in St. John, New Brunswick. The plan was to find Canadian Money. I had read several things and it seemed the best way was just to use an ATM. So I found one and it worked. I stayed at Rockwood Park in St. John, which is an ok RV park. It’s just a gravel lot but in downtown St. John and has several walking trails.
From St. John, I headed to Nova Scotia, with one stop in Glenholme, NS and then on to Little Bras D’Or (I don’t know how that is pronounced, but if it is the way I read it, I should have stayed up the road in Big Bras D’Or).
While on the road, I have been enjoying their signs. I have to think about some of them and few I am not sure yet what they mean.
It took me a few seconds, but I realized this is slippery when freezing.
The following are not great pictures because they were taken while driving, but I had fun trying to figure these out.
I haven’t figured out what the hand holding the pottery is, probably crafts. But later I saw a spinning wheel, so maybe it really means there is a pottery at that exit. On the second one, I am guessing the grapes mean a winery. I wasn’t sure what the 5th one on that same sign meant, but I have learned that’s the sign for Parks Canada. On the last one, I am still not sure what the key is. I am guessing that the @ means there is internet access somewhere?? One of my favorites was a picture similar to the one with person sleeping under a roof, with an egg in an egg cup beside it. I figured out that meant there was a Bed and Breakfast at that exit. Who knows, but it kept me entertained while driving down the road.
