Flag of Canada  , Nova Scotia,
Thursday, September 13, 2012

 The day began with a drive around Acadia National Park with its numerous scenic overlooks: of a sandy beach (the only one in the area), a thunderous blowhole, various rocky points and, the highest part of the island, Cadillac Mountain. Three cruise ships were in today and again made for a beautiful scene on this glorious day.
 We then set out on the long drive up the rocky coast of Maine towards the Canadian border. The churches here are white and have tall pointed steeples. The topography and vegetation changed quite rapidly as soon as we entered Canada, the type of evergreens becoming much more limited, and the roads very wide. They have a lot of space in this country!
 We both fell asleep in the car waiting for the ferry to Nova Scotia, a three hour voyage that arrived at 2 am. Luckily our motel was only two minutes from the terminal, so we were in bed very quickly indeed.
