Thanks for the tip! And I'm a fiddle player to boot....even have one in the snoozy to practice on during our trip.
How good does it get!!
Just arrived in Ocean NJ after a quick stop at Medoc Mtn State park ( very nice ) and last night at Pocomoke River St Park , after a visit to our friend Ruth in Williamsburg, VA. Also took a quick look at the wild ponies at Assettague Nat'l park for a future trip look see.

Happy Trails!

We just returned from a week of camping in Maine in the rain. I strongly recommend the ME state parks. Don't know about hookups though, we don't use them. $25/night, best state parks we have ever camped.

Stop in Newburyport, MA if you get a chance. It's a lovely little town, right on US 1. We live there on our sailboat in the summers (although heading back to Colorado today).

We are planning a camping trip through the Maritimes for September 2014, look forwrd to reading your posts.

At the end of August the Lawrence town exhibition is held. In the heart of the Annapolis valley you can experience small town flavor.

In Nova Scotia!

Just arrived in N.S. from three days in P.E.I. Camped at Linkletter Provincial Park, a nice, clean semi central campground. It rained all three days.Had a hard time finding mussels and french frys until we drove the central scenic route and noticed the Sou' West Bar and Grill on the Sou' west River in New London Wharf right on the water where they farm the mussels. Had a great lunch of the mussels, frys and Gahan Island Red Ale. We had imagined places like this all over P.E.I., but it was not the case. Drove over the bridge to N.S. and are staying at the Cranberry Campground Richard recommended. It is wonderful,clean, on the water, family run and we would gladly stay a while, but we a are headed to the Cabot Trail staying at Adventure East Campground near Baddock for four days. If you have any other camping recommendations for us as we approach Halifax, or places that two "foodies" would like, please let me know. Until then,
Happy Trails

Gleam,

We didn't drive the whole loop this year but did go to one excellent restaurant. It's a little place named the Clucking Hen. Absolutely the best deserts ever. It's in Englishtown. Great lunch stop.

Clucking Hen Cafe and Bakery, Englishtown - Restaurant Reviews - TripAdvisor

Really glad you got to Cranberry Camping - beautiful spot, very welcoming and helpful people. If you're a paddler, Merigomish is very, very close to heaven - sheltered, warm water, great bird life and dandy little nooks and crannies to poke around in all over the harbour...

Halifax

We left Cape Breton yesterday and camped one night at Riverside Campground in Sherbrook. Today we are camping in Hubbard which is central to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg and such. Nova Scotia is wonderful, and we simply cannot find the words to describe the beauty that surrounds us daily. This has been a fine trip. The Snoozy is great and my thirteen year old GMC van is pushing 140,000 miles this week. Hope she holds up. We have a long ways to go, yet.
Happy Trails to you...

My wife and I are heading out for our second trip in our 1975 Boler. We will be in the North East corner of New Brunswick and finding our way down around PEI. If anyone has recommendations on any quiet camp grounds or spots to visit off the beaten path it would be appreciated. We will be leaving on Saturday Aug, 10th.

We stayedin Linkletter Provincial Park near Summerside not too far from the bridge. We used that to see most of the province. Also stayed at the KOA near Charlottetown.

My three favorite things were the bottle house, MacAusland woolen mill and the real green gables. The Woolen mill is really wonderful. Great prices and it's a real old mill. They let you walk around like you owned the place. There since 1870.

Another neat place was the Notre Dame Catheral in Mt Carmel. This is a huge church in a small community where most surfaces have been painted to look like marble, almost unbelievable and worth a visit.... hope this is the right church but I'm almost sure it is the one.

We like the Provincial Parks and also stayed at Linkletter.
The soft ice creme place at the intersection was GREAT
P.E.I. was ok, but we found Nova Scotia to be magnificent.
We stayed at both private and national parks in M.S.
All were just fine
Happy Trails
We leave the island tomorrow
Wish the ferry to Bar Harbor still ran!!

Each of the maritime provinces are special in their own way. Our favorite is of course Newfoundland and the Labrador portion of NL. We like rural, really rural. Saying that we've been to NS 7 times.

It takes a lot of time anywhere to discover the ordinary, the special and the unique.

On each repeat trip we end up discovering something new. Our stop in NV illustrates it well.

On our last loop of the USA we spent more than a week in Welcome Station near Elko, NV. The owners of the campground gave us things to do and see every day. We were all over the desert and mountains visiting ghost towns, mountain lakes and even a thru hole in the top of a mountain. We had a great time and never saw it all and Welcome Station is almost no where.

We hope to return to Welcome Station, a nice little passport park with a group gathering around the owner's fire and sometimes with apple crisp and ice cream.

We're heading back to Welcome this year.
