Atlantic Provinces: Nova Scotia
To the east of Canada is the province of Nova Scotia, our destination. We crossed New Brunswick by the coast to Cape Breton after visiting Quebec.
We traveled to Cape Breton for the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the Cabot Trail. A beautiful road with a rugged landscape that could be compared to Scotland or Ireland. On this island, moreover, many signs are translated into Gaelic, and the names refer to the Celts.
We hiked the Skyline Trail to try to see our last whales in the east of the country. We saw a moose that was eating quietly in the boreal forest near a trail.
On our way off the island, there was a rainstorm. Our electric drawer, where our inverter and three batteries were located, had water inside. The inverter was flooded and thus, stopped working.
Atlantic Provinces: New Brunswick
Back in New Brunswick to stop in Fundy National Park, we spent 6 nights there. We were waiting for an Amazon delivery for a new inverter.
We absolutely wanted to go to the Bay of Fundy to see the Hopewell Rocks and the world’s highest tides.
In the national park, we hiked twice, including one with a river-crossing, our first swim in a river in Canada.
Once our package had arrived, we drove back to Quebec City to go to a RV meeting on the island of Orleans.
On the way, we had the misfortune to break down. It was an engine oil failure. Luckily, we had some in the trunk. After a refill and some time to lubricate the engine, we were able to leave without assistance.
