Old Town Lunenburg

Craig Harder Canada - 05-Aug-18

Old Town Lunenburg

Visited 20JUL 2018

This lovely town is exemplary of how good planning can create beauty.  There are so many great old buildings that have been preserved in this fishing village. 

In 1753, the British founded Lunenburg as their first colonial outpost in Nova Scotia beyond Halifax. The first settlers arrived in June 1753. Mostly Protestant German, Swiss and French colonists, the settlers participated in a formal lottery, choosing cards to determine the plots of land upon which they would settle and build.

Grand Pré

Craig Harder Canada - 05-Aug-18

Visited 20JUL 2018

This site is in a marshland area on the south shore of the Bay of Fundy, close to Wolfeville, being pleasant and historic and would be a good place to stay nearby. 

 The Visitor Centre at Grand Pré is impressive, especially its multimedia exhibits of the brilliant diking systems of the Acadians and in-depth explanations of their cruel expulsion by the British from the lands they worked so hard to tame from the sea. 

Caught between French and British power struggles, around 10,000 Acadians were eventually put on ships and taken to other colonies, many winding up in Louisiana in the US, but some of whom found their way back to their cherished homeland

Joggins Fossil Cliffs

Craig Harder Canada - 02-Aug-18

Joggins Fossil Cliffs

The cliffs are near the Nova Scotia border with New Brunswick. 

Although we were told to book a day or two in advance to get the extensive tour, we were informed it was booked up when we followed that advice.  However, when we arrived they allowed us to join the fully engaged two-hour tour.  It was a very hot day, and we almost regretted having taken that extensive tour rather than the half hour option which would have been sufficient.

The guide was patient and spent most of the time answering questions about whether various rocks were fossils or just rocks    It is definitely important to have a guide as many of the fossils, mostly of plants, are not easy to find on one’s own.

L'Anse aux Meadows

Craig Harder Canada - 02-Aug-18

L

L'Anse aux meadows lies at the very tip of Northwest Newfoundland.  Nearby is the small town of St. Anthony, where we saw several icebergs and met some bikers, who were also exceptionally friendly and personable, like all Newfoundlanders.  

The Viking site of L’Anse aux Meadows is scenic, enabling you to believe that the Norse chose it partly for its beauty. Three icebergs were visible in the distance.  Tall grasses, tiny wildflowers and horizontal forests brought Mistaken Point to mind.  The Visitor’s Centre was beautifully done and informative with a lovely Viking ship replica. The UNESCO Plaque is very impressive!

Gros Morne National Park

Craig Harder Canada - 30-Jul-18

Gros Morne National Park

Visited 15JUL 2018

This is a huge park situated on a vast body of fresh water, which makes it not officially a fjord, although the soaring cliffs and rock formations make it seem like one.  We took the Western Brook boat tour to take in the dramatic rock formations and occasional waterfalls.  It is good to book in advance with BonTours as this is a popular activity. 

One aspect that is not so well-liked is the 3-kilometre walk from the park to the dock on rough gravel through the bog-like but attractive scenery.  Beware those black flies if the wind isn’t blowing.   It seems like there are plans to have some sort of transport in the future for those unwilling or unable to make the trek.
