Welcome to Canada and our part of the world. You seem to have done your research and doing a lots of Zig Zag to see as much as you can. Went going to PEI you can take the Bridge to go in from New Brunswick and a Ferry to Nova Scotia which will save you from coming back to NB. In Nova Scotia the Cabot Trail is nice to see, however many people prefer leaving the RV in Bedeck and use the Jeep to go around the Trail. St-Pierre is a very nice little French town to visit, I was there once and would like to go again. There again you will have to leave the MH at Fortune and probably your Jeep too. Not sure if you can cross you Jeep on the Ferry? Depending which Ferry they are using this Summer, you would have to check that one out. Fundy Park in NB is also nice to visit, but if you like Sea Food I would stop at the World Capital of Sea Food and the Bigger Lobster in the world, Shediac By the Sea.

We would love to return to Louisbourg about 35 miles from North Sydney ferry terminal. From a distance, Louisburg fortress is stunning. Up close the details are fascinating and history of the British and French struggles here is engrossing.


I am sure you are planning to visit the overlook and lighthouse at St. John's. Even though the weather was grey and drizzly the day we visited, it was so dramatic. Our day trip from Bay Bulls to see the puffins was great.

Howdy - spent a month plus in Newfoundland last summer - early June to mid July. Short ferry to Port aux Basque (Grand Codroy RV), up to Gros Morne (Grosmorne RV in Rocky Harbour) - highly recommend Western Brook Fjord boat tour - get a reservation, tho! Then up to Lanse aux Meadows, iceberg boat tour from St Anthony, one night in Labrador at Pinware River PP (small but very pretty!), over towards St. Johns (check out little CG in La Scie - terrible road, wonderful location Also King's Point - "Home of the Whale"!), south to Trepassey (AVOID Chance Cove PP - even though it's free - TERRIBLE road in, many seasonal-plus residents, no facilities), west to Argentia, back to Gros Morne (Water's Edge RV in Birchy Head), then south to ferry back to North Sydney.

A couple notes: 1st - water quality is an issue all over - since it is a rocky island few wells, mostly surface water sources - almost everywhere had a "boil" order regarding drinking water. Consider extra water carriers to fill at places that do have good water. We used bleach to sanitize our drinking water when questionable. You need more than a regular filter! 2nd - fuel is pricey everywhere - just a fact - but readily available. We had also wanted to go to St. Pierre - did NOT do this - was warned by multiple locals that the ferry operator also owned the hotel on the island - one trip each day, so you were "trapped" for the night - big bucks to stay there - also told the island residents were not necessarily welcoming of tourists... Saw LOTS of icebergs last year - boat ride was fun but not necessary to see them. Spend a day in Elliston - public puffin viewing site, and Gannets at "Bird Rock" in Cape Saint Mary's south of Argentia. Tour the French fort at Castle Hill just outside Placentia!!! Roads were kind of rough - take it slow (even TCH!). Overall had a really good visit! ST

Loggenrock, We appreciate the water info and will plan ahead to deal with it. We have not firmed up our visit to St Pierre but will be aware of your suggestion to avoid the Ferry hotel.

I have incorporated your suggestions into our literary.

By the way, we will be traveling South on I-95 to meet up with our granddaughter in the Boston area on our way home to central NY State. I am planning on touring American History sites with her. She is 12 yrs old.

We usually cross from Maine to New Brunswick at Calais - this time we took I-95 farther north to Houlton - NO delay at the border there - Calais is often busy... ST
