Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

I first heard about the Crystal Falls trail when perusing fellow blogger Laura Churchill Duke’s write up on Valley Family Fun, so on a day off hubby and I decided to give it a go. Laura had already gotten good directions from the Kingston Visitor Centre-we used those. I have included them below. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I love it especially for getting outdoors and exploring. Directions to  the Crystal Falls Trail Take Exit 17 to…

The Beautiful Cabot Trail, Cape Breton

The Beautiful Cabot Trail, Cape Breton

  Personally, I think the best time to tour the Cabot Trail is once the leaves turn color, but recently we took the opportunity to introduce some friends from Holland to it’s beauty. We were only joining them for part of the trip,so we picked up the RV they had booked at CanaDream in Waverly, and headed out. Day One We only made it to Port Hood-and only stopped there because it was the closest thing we could find for…

George’s Island-More than Just Snakes

George’s Island-More than Just Snakes

  Celebrating Canada’s 150 birthday means parties and special events this entire year. I mentioned in an earlier post on Nova Scotia’s National Parks & Historic sites that I’m doing my best to get to some of these. During Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Festival such an opportunity presented itself.  George’s Island was opened for tours, a concert and a Taste of Nova Scotia event were held there. What could I do-I bought tickets to the tunnel tours and hopped on the ferry.

Those Hidden Gems-Black Rock Trails and Lighthouse

Those Hidden Gems-Black Rock Trails and Lighthouse

  Recently we all hopped in the car- husband, dog and me- and set off for a Sunday drive. Now you may know me well enough by now to know I am not a sit in the car and drive around type of gal, but more of a let’s see what we can get into, err, I mean do, woman.  This may or may not cause ‘heated’ in-car discussion. Not with the dog-she always wants to do things. Nuff said….

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

It”s been years since I’ve done the Bohaker Trail in Delaps Cove in Annapolis County . I remembered it was  a fairly short hike and that there was a point along the trail where one could see the Bay of Fundy and a waterfall at the same time. The trail was indeed short-just over 2 km, and that includes a careful decent to the bottom of the falls. Once again, a perfect day. No bugs. No rain. No blistering heat….

Bring Your Bike to Big Tancook

Bring Your Bike to Big Tancook

One of the best things about bringing your  bike over to Big Tancook Island is -you get to the food first. You can roll right off the ferry and pump you legs up the hill past the couples, the families and the old folks with walkers and canes. I jest,of course. While it’s true Tancook has limited choices for restaurants, and while it’s also true food is usually everyone’s first stop, you could just as easily whiz by them and…

We Hiked Cape Split-and Lived to Tell About It.

We Hiked Cape Split-and Lived to Tell About It.

To all the visitors who asked me about Cape Split at the Visitor Centre. I lied. It’s much more hilly then I remembered. Last weekend, a friend and I hiked Cape Split. Cape Split Provincial Park Reserve is a 447-hectare with a 12.5 km  trail rimming its northern edge. There are signs at the beginning and all over the web that insist this trail is 16 km..but I measured the sucker with my Tom Tom  and it was just over 6…

Walking Shubie Park-Fairbanks Interpretive Centre Trail

  Last week, I decided to take the dog, (and my husband ) to Shubie Canal trail head, located at the Fairbanks Interpretive Centre.  Neither my dog, (nor my husband ) had been to the park before,so it was an opportunity for both of them check out some new trails. We only covered  a smidgen of the over 18 km of trail. The Trail The trails for the most part are well maintained crusher dust and easy to walk-although there…
