Nova Scotia!

Carol and Glenn have had some amazing conditions over the last week!

It has not been as hot as it is here in Ontario! But they have had warm weather and calm waters which has allowed them to arrive safely in beautiful Nova Scotia!

Just before reaching Nova Scotia they paddled under the 12.9 km Confederation bridge which connects New Brunswick and PEI.  This is the longest bridge in the word!

And they have camped in some gorgeous campsites including the one below filled with Inukshuks on the Northumberland Straight.

Keep on paddling.

Half Way There!

In order to reach their half way point in Hartland, New Brunswick, Carol and Glenn first had to do a grueling portage around the very large Beachwood Dam to make it to the St. John River!

However, after the portage, the view on the St. John River was completely worth it.

They were extremely excited to reach the milestone half way point in Hartland, New Brunswick!  A great sense of accomplishment.  Hartland is home to the world’s largest covered bridge.  The covered bridge is 391 metres and the framework consists of 7 small Howe Truss bridges joined together on 6 piers.

The day was very calm as you can see in the reflection in the beautiful picture below.

Keep on paddling.

70 km Portage Completed!

Well Carol and Glenn have been working very hard!

They have just completed the longest portage they will have to do from Ottawa to Sydney, Nova Scotia!  It was a grueling but beautiful 70 km in only 3.5 days!

The portage began in Riviere-du-Loop on the St. Lawrence River and finished in Cabino on Lac Temiscouata.

As you can see from the above picture the portage trail was in good shape and they had a canoe cart to put the canoe on!

They hope to be in New Brunswick in about 2 days.  And they are back on the water again very happy to be paddling!

Keep on paddling.
