Back to Nova Scotia!
First settled in 1790, the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, is located in central Cumberland County approximately 40 kilometers southeast of the New Brunswick border. We went to the Miners’ Museum, and learned about the disasters that had occurred there.
They would take people down into one of the mine shafts…. Ra, Debbie, Connor and Mickey all went down. They had to put on miners’ gear, including slicker, boots, and the helmut with a light attached!
We stayed overnight… maybe it was in Amhurst… not sure. I know it rained overnight, and the sun was shining again when we got up. In the whole month that we were traveling, any rain that came was only at night… except for our very last day, when it poured all day.
Our only foray into New Brunswick was at Cape Tormentine where we caught the ferry to Prince Edward Island. At that time they were just starting to build the bridge that now carries tourists, and locals, across to PEI.
I think that’s enough traveling for today, so will continue writing at another time.
