Chapter 11B: Rivière-du-Loup, Québec

Our second stop in Québec took us across the St. Lawrence River to a town called Rivière-du-Loup. This would be one of the last ferries would take on this tour (we would take the same ferry back on our way to Alma). The roads here were small and windy like St. John’s, but not quite as confusing!…

Chapter 11A: Baie-Comeau, Québec

We have finally arrived in the last province of the tour: Québec! Our first stop was the small city of Baie-Comeau located right along the northern part of the St. Lawrence River before it opens up to the ocean. This drive was long and particularly exhausting because we had torn down the exhibit in the…

Chapter 9C: Riverview, New Brunswick

Our final stop in New Brunswick was in Riverview, a town just outside of Moncton. Our venue, Riverview High School provided us a tight space in the library to set up our exhibit. Thankfully, everything fit through the doorway just fine. However, we had to adjust our layout due to some shelves and desk space…

Chapter 9B: Fredericton, New Brunswick

Without much of a break, we headed towards the beautiful city of Fredericton. We had passed this city on our way towards the east coast and so we were familiar with a bit of the downtown area already. Fortunately, we stayed close to downtown so access to food was all within walking distance. The hotel we…

Chapter 9A: Saint John, New Brunswick

In a blink of an eye, we were off to another province: New Brunswick. Saint John (not to be confused with St. John’s, NL) was our first stop. It was nice to be staying within the downtown area for a change – we stayed in Dartmouth when we worked in Halifax. Our hotel here was…

Chapter 8D: Halifax, Nova Scotia

Finally, we arrived in the beautiful city of Halifax! It had been a while since we were in a more populated area, so we tried to take advantage of the amenities of a big city – more food, places to drink and explore. We would be stationed at the Discovery Centre in Halifax, except we…

Chapter 8C: St. Bernard, Nova Scotia

We headed to St. Bernard, Nova Scotia, a very tiny town just a few kilometres from Weymouth for our next stop. We stayed in the lovely Goodwin Hotel in Weymouth which overlooked a small river and basically the entire “downtown” area, which consisted of a few restaurants, a small visitor centre and library. The weather…

Chapter 8B: Antigonish, Nova Scotia

It was sad to depart the beautiful Cape Breton Island, but the drive to Antigonish, NS was lovely. It was nice to witness the autumn colours and still be close to the ocean. Antigonish is home to St. Francis Xavier University and interestingly, their homecoming prevented us from actually staying in town. Instead, we had…
