Betty:  It was the outboard drive tire on the passenger side.  It is probably 4 years old, but it had a sidewall break that had been there for around 8,000 miles.  It was only a matter of time.  I don't remember when the damage occurred.

Ron,

Once you've taken the long ferry to Newfoundland, the price of any other toll is not going to bother us.

Betty

And you saved $100.00 by going the last day of June. 8)

August 29, 2008   Shediac, New Brunswick  Wishing Star Campground  Etoile  ( 506) 532-6786 Passport Park

We crossed the Confederation Bridge this morning from PEI to  New Brunswick. The bridge is  13 Kilometers or about  9 miles long.  Due to the very cloudy day, we could not see much but I noted how high over the  water we were for so long.  It is a 2 lane highway with no passing allowed.  The toll for  us  with our tow car was $55.00.  This was less than the Ferry so we saved money by crossing the bridge rather than returning by ferry whose fare would have been over $100.  It was exciting to  cross such a modern miracle of  engineering.  When I review the DVD I purchased on its  construction I will report back to  you with the details of its construction.  If you happen to come to  our home in Yuma Im sure you will get a chance to see it.

The highlight of the day was our visit to see our  newly met Forum friends, Ed and Donna who live outside of Halifax, NS  but have a summer cottage in Shediac, NB.  Ed has been following our trip through Atlantic Canada and graciously invited us to his cottage for supper tonight.  His wife Donna  attended a funeral  today and did  personal  family errands outside of town today but still managed to have supper for 3  strangers from this RV Forum tonight.  Their gracious offer for dinner to  weary travelers was welcomed and appreciated.  So often on trips we drive by homes but never really see inside  how folks live.  Their remodeling efforts on a long time family cottage are impressive  but even more so their hospitality!  We traded stories on  our history of getting into the RV life style and  some of the history of our family issues. related to old age.  I guess we should all just live each day.  My only sorrow of the evening is that despite bringing our camera, no one snapped any photos.  Too bad.  Ed is quite  nimble in the kitchen. We will take  advice given tonight of activities in the area and continue touring in the morning as the weather is forecasted to clear.

Although we had never physically met, we have had months of being RV Forum friends.  The Maritime way is to offer CFA's (come from away's) the hospitality of your house, it's just what's done here.  I must say it was an enjoyable evening hearing about the many RV trip you've taken over the years, it was enjoyable to be able to speak of other Forum friends, several of whom we've met other only met on line.  Our paths will cross again, unfortunately not this year as you will have left Florida by the time we get there.  I do hope that you can make the Fall Rally, and that Terry enjoys his rally this fall.  Russ you're the photographer, so I guess you will get blamed for not remembering to pull out a camera (someone has to wear the blame). 
     Enjoy the rest of your trip, keep up the trip reports as they are delightful.

Hi Betty,

If you like Blue Herons then you'll really enjoy Florida. We have all you want to see. There's usually one walking around the pond behind our screen room. Lots of other large birds as well. Attached is one I got at our pond.

I have a sign from the College of Piping that Terry & Liliane gave me. It's hanging on our shed. Says "Parking for Pipers Only!".

August 30, 2008 Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick

Still hearty tourists we drove off this morning to see some highs and some lows at Hopewell Rocks. We arrived to purchase tickets (good for today and tomorrow) in a swarm of treacherous salt water marsh mosquitoes. Swatting and spitting I made a quick trip back to the car to get the repellant. Terry and I walked the twenty minute path through thick trees to the viewing platforms. We could see the shore below filled with water and hoo doo type structures protruding up from the water. We snapped photos and left with the plan to return at 3 pm to walk on the ocean floor at low tide.

In the mean time we drove the Bay of Fundy Coastal Drive and visited Cape Enrage. This little lighthouse was not being maintained any longer as it is now automated and was scheduled to be demolished. A group of local high school students from Moncton decided to take it on as a salvage project. It is very nicely done and affords tremendous views up and down the coast. I did think of Sue Cousins when I saw that I would have the opportunity to ride on the zip line but I elected to go to the former lighthouse keepers residence which is now a lovely restaurant and have homemade soup for lunch. Diet will start 9/1. We enjoyed the muddy rivers as we could see tides retreating. We also saw numerous blue herons again today. We explored the tiny town of Alma a bit and took photos of the boats in the water and could see the water lines from a higher tide.

When we returned to Hopewell Rocks at 3pm we took the shuttle bus ride to the rocks as wed had enough exercise for one day. It was clear now how the name flower pots became a nick name for these rocks. The formations have a small forest of trees on top. This time the water was gone and we were able to walk over the grounds, rock and mud. Little kids were loving the muddy bottom and had a blast. I was careful as I traversed over the rocks with my camera in hand. The erosion over time makes some of the places too dangerous to go and have been roped off. We are also give VERY clear instructions on the time we must be back up the steps to avoid a quickly returning tide. The rides rise and fall the equivalent of a 4 story building. What a thrill.

Back in Shediac we took advantage of the sunny afternoon to photograph the large lobster sculpture at the entrance to town. Shediac is known as the lobster capital of the world and the figure says it all.

Wendy, you still didn't see it all.  Terry's shot of the low tide is only near halfway.  At low tide, the water is out another 100 yards from the flower pot rocks.

>The Guinness Book of World Records states the world's highest tides to be in the Minas Basin, NS, with the maximum tidal range recorded at 16.8 meters (54.6 ft).  Parrsboro, the largest Seaport on the Minas Basin, affords the best view of this tidal phenomenon. At this point the tide floods and ebbs over 3.2 kilometers (2 mi.) of tidal flat from the low watery mark to the head of the harbor. Each phase of the cycle takes approximately 5hrs\40 min. which results in each succeeding high or low water mark range an average 14m. (45.5 ft.) while the harbor heights are about 7.5 m (24 ft.). For more details see the websites http://museum.gov.ns.ca/fossils/protect/tides.htm and http://www.valleyweb.com/fundytides/.

Anchorage Alaska boasts the world's second highest tides: varying over 40 feet, low to high tide! Bore tide (one of the three highest in the world, and a weird phenomenon: capillary action on a gigantic scale!) occurs 2 hours 15 minutes after low tide; best viewed between Mileposts 101 and 90 Seward Highway (26 to 37 miles from Anchorage).  For details see the website http://www.co-ops.nos.noaa.gov/about2.html <<

Amazing what one can find on Google.

"Severn Estuary .... The estuary has one of the highest tidal ranges in the world about 15 metres (49 ft).[1][2] During the highest tides, the rising water is funnelled up the estuary into the Severn bore, a self-reinforcing solitary wave that travels rapidly upstream against the river current.[3]. The estuary's funnel shape, its tidal range, and the underlying geology of rock, gravel and sand, produce strong tidal streams and high turbidity, giving the water a notably brown coloration."

Click here for more.

Also ...

"The Severn Bore is one of Britain's few truly spectacular natural phenomena. It is a large surge wave that can be seen in the estuary of the River Severn, where the tidal range is the 2nd highest in the world, being as much as 50 feet (approx. 15.4m)."

Tom,

    There is a similar occurence in New Brunswick, Canada, on the St. John River. 

     The St. John River flows into the Bay of Fundy at the town of St. John in New Brunswick, Canada, and is known for its Reversing Falls Rapids which occur when the river reverses its flow twice a day.  The Reversing Falls Rapids are caused by the extremely high tides of the Bay of Fundy and must be seen on the flood tide. 

     Click here for more information.  The photos in this link do not due the phenomenon justice.

Oh goody goody.  In a few days we get to go on a boat trip on that river and experience the tides up close and personal .  Will let you know how it turns out.

Have a safe boat trip Betty. When we used to cross the tidal bore on the Severn Estuary by ferry (before they built the first bridge), I used to be really scared. OTOH I was only a kid at that time. But, having crossed the two bridges numerous times and looked down, I've told myself that I wouldn't want to skipper a boat in that estuary when the tide is running.

I think in sympathy with the Cajuns in Louisiana the Terry, Betty aJnd Russ brought us torrential rain today.  I know they're talking about going on the jet boat in Saint John (a herringchoker, ie New Brunswicker, never abbreviates Saint John), but since they're parked right on Shediac Bay at the mouth of  the Scouduc River, I'm concerned they might need a boat to rescue them.  Donna and I are on higher ground, at least 3 or 4 feet higher, so we're ok.  ;D

Well Ed, you can tell I'm not a herringchoker, I've been accused of being a lot of things in my life, but never a herringchoker.

I have a friend who used to sail to the NE sections of Canada every summer, then return to the Bahamas the following winter, bringing us many tins of tasty kippers.

Terry, Tom, and Steve,

I couldn't help but chuckle while reading your respective discourses on the tides.  Jerry and I have been to many gold-bearing regions of the world and it's amazing how many of them claim to have the biggest producing gold field in the world.  Guess the same is true with tides....  I guess it's just human nature that everyone wants to be "numero uno."

Nevertheless, aren't the flower pots just the neatest place!  Also Betty reminded me of Alma.  We had a nice dinner there right next to the fishing boat anchorage channel and it was interesting to see the tide come in and refloat the boats.

Ardra,

I believe you misunderstood my messages &/or their intent.

Having grown up in an area where the tides were the highest in Europe, the Bay of Fundy didn't give me a "wow, look at those high tides" reaction. Had I been raised on the CA Delta, where the typical tidal variation is 4 feet, I'd have had a completely different reaction.

When we were kids, we'd go fishing at low tide on a pier and look way down at the water. Before we were done for the day, the water would be lapping over the top of the pier. Similarly, if we went fishing at the beach, we'd cast into the surf at low tide, and would spend the next several hours continually letting out line and walking up the beach.

Ardra,

   I have to agree.  I was only relating the information about the SAINT John River Reversing Falls for two reasons.  First, it was related to Tom's post about a tidal bore in England, and second, it pertains to the theme of this thread, the Canadian Maritimes.  I have no idea who is number one in tides, and don't really care.

August 31 and September 1, 2008  Shediac, New Brunswick 

You have not heard from me for the past couple of days because we have not done anything special.  It has been a nice change of pace to  just hunker down in the motor home and wait out this storm.  We have had a steady rain,  day and night,  with gusting winds.  I have a lovely water view and noted white caps and water flowing over the rocks. As  I have been watching  Hurricane Gustov on TV, I  have not felt sorry for myself  with this weather event.  We have extended here for  a couple of more days hoping for a clear day to see a few more local sights. Many of the tourist places claim to be the biggest, best, oldest, highest, first and a slew of other superlatives.  They can all fool us as it is all new to us and still enjoyable.

The tourist scene is  on the decline.  Several of the shops here in this beach town are closed up.  When we phoned  The Garrison Historic District we learned they  are no longer having the Changing of the Guard Ceremony as most of them are students who have  had to return to  school.   The good news is that Passport  America rates are now good which give us 50% off at membership  parks.   

I took the opportunity today to renew my commitment to Weight Watchers.  I got out all of my books and will be seriously counting points until I am back in goal range.  The fun Ive had sampling large portions of local cuisine has now come home to haunt me.  Ive even gotten out the  rubber shoes I  bought while in wet Alaska and may attempt  to walk  in the rain for exercise but I kinda doubt it.

Tom and Steve, not really.  In fact, I agree with you both.  Immediately after returning from an Alaska-Canada trip, where we saw lots of gigantic glaciers, we ended up in New Zealand where folks are really proud of their Franz Josef glacier.  It's nice, but it didn't impress us all that much because of our recent experience in Alaska.  I agree that it's in the eye of the beholder and that person's frame of reference.  Just reading all the messages clumped together is what amused me because it reminded me of all those gold mining claims.

September 2,  2008   Shediac, New Brunswick   Beautiful Day

It is amazing how the weather can be so dramatically different within a day.  Today was  sunny and beautiful.  The mosquitoes all seemed have drowned in the rain and wind of the past couple of days.  Im rested up as a tourist and we set out for big adventures today that included Costco.

Our first stop was the Magnetic Hill.  Now this is admittedly a complete  tourist thing, but we  really enjoyed the  illusions created.  We drove into the Theme park and told the guy at the kiosk, We dont want to go to the water park, nor to the zoo nor to the restaurants nor to the Winery, we just want to drive to the hill.  No problem he says and $5.00 later we can take as many trips up and down that we like.  There was a large tour bus in front of us and we watched him .  We  parked at the designated spot, put the car into neutral and then we rolled  backwards up the hill.  Im not kidding.  It felt as if we were coasting up hill.  My brain is  easily tricked so I decided to walk the drive.  Sure enough my legs we tired at the end as it was an uphill trek but it sure didnt look like it.   What a fun illusion.  We made several trips and Terry took photos of the GPS to  see just how steep the hill.

From there the tour books lured us to the  small quaint Village of Sackville.  It claims to be the Cultural Capital of Canada.  I checked out a few art galleries  and museums that were closed today.  Tourist season is definitely coming to an end.  The local University is in session and it was fun to see the students all over the  beautiful  campus of stone buildings.  I noted the Elementary and Middle schools also in session.  I love being retired.

Back in Shediac we took advantage of the  Pont de Chene Wharf and viewed the calm blue  waters today along with the lovely sand beaches that boast the warmest waters north of Virginia.  Too bad we were not here earlier in the summer to enjoy the warm days too. 

The highlight of our evening was a surprise visit from Ed and Donna who came to wish us farewell as we head south  in the morning.  We told them all about our last few days and they gave us hints on things to do and see for our next destinations.  It was an official rally as we did take photos this time!

Magnetic Hill sounds like fun. I'm a sucker for touristy (especially "unusual" touristy things). But I need to know, in the picture on the road, is the car headed downhill or uphill?

The car started at the white post & coasted UPHILL in reverse at quite a good rate.....So in that picture the front of the car is heading uphill.

There is also a gravity hill near the State capital in SLC.  Another place that will give the impression of going down hill when you are actually going up hill or visa versa is driving through the Wind River Canyon in Wyoming.
Ron & Sam-home is where we park it. Currently located   HERE
