So it did pour with rain all morning yesterday, but the rain stopped after lunch and it actually cleared up later. By mid afternoon the sun was shining on and off.
After we left our internet spot yesterday morning, we headed to the Greenwood Mall to use their free dump station. (GPS N44.96872 W64.92328). Then, we headed to the town of
There's a reason it's called "Valleyview" Provincial Park!
Of course the provincial parks are all closed at this time of year, but there’s nothing stopping you from parking at the entrance and going for a walk. They were actually working in this park, cleaning up broken tree branches and getting the sites ready for the camping season. But there are only 30 campsites and they don’t open the park until June 17th! We think this is totally ridiculous, however they are all “rustic” sites with no power or water, and only outhouse toilets so we agree that it probably wouldn’t be very busy prior to that. Having said that, why wouldn’t they open them on a self serve basis as they do in many smaller parks in the
We decided to continue on further down the road to the
Bay of Fundy coast again on the chance there may be another decent boondocking spot. Sure enough, the harbour at the had a nice little parking spot, with enough room for maybe two or three RV’s. I asked one of the fisherman here if we were okay to park for the night, and he said we’d be fine and that he does see other RV’s occasionally parked here. (GPS N44.90607 W65.35102). Any RV could make it down here, although there’s a bit of a steep hill leading down to the wharf, and not a lot of turn around space. If you’re towing, you might have to disconnect to get turned around. village of Hampton
The Bay of Fundy has the highest recorded tides in the world. At high tide, these boats float at the top of the wharf!

We had a beautiful sunset!
We had a totally peaceful night, and didn’t even wake up this morning until 7:45am! That’s a real sleep-in for us, even Whiskey didn’t wake up until then!
Once again, we don’t have internet here. I checked the signal map for our mi-fi yesterday, and most of this coast is not serviced by a cell signal, being only a couple of miles out of range. So we’ll head inland again in search of internet to post this blog entry!
Travelling pretty slow…only did 75 kms (47 miles) yesterday. Maybe we’ll make it to Digby today…who knows. Who cares. (smile).
