Maritime Provinces

O'Canada, National Anthem of Canada


These pages describe a motorcycle tour my daughter, Sharon, and I (John) did of the Canadian Maritime Provinces, including a "side trip" to northern Maine, USA, during the Summer, 2000.  Travel distance was about 4000 miles, and I was on the road 8 days.

I left Brookhaven, Long Island, New York on Thursday, August 17 and met Sharon on Friday in Portland, Maine.  We took the Prince of Fundy ferry to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia Friday night, biked up the southeast coast of Nova Scotia to Halifax on Saturday, then on to North Sydney, Nova Scotia on Sunday.

From there we took a ferry Monday morning to Argentia, Newfoundland, arriving late in the evening.  The next three days we crossed Newfoundland east to west, arriving in Port aux Basques, Newfoundland late Thursday evening.

Friday morning we took the "fast" ferry back to North Sydney, Nova Scotia, toured Cape Breton highlands, then took the ferry to Prince Edward Island, where we spent Friday evening.

We crossed Prince Edward Island on Saturday, returning to the mainland via the Confederation Bridge, and spent the night at Fredericton, New Brunswick.

On Sunday, we went up to northern New Brunswick and crossed over into Maine for a photo op at the northern terminus of US Route 1 in Fort Kent; then www.poloralphlaurenaustralia.biz down through the Maine woods to Medway, Maine for the night.

On Monday, we crossed Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to Sharon's cabin near Morrisville, Vermont.  And on Tuesday, I returned to Long Island via the Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry.

The following is a daily log, with pictures and maps of our travels (from Dad's perspective), as well as a detailed itinerary.
