Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Eighteen

– Charlottetown, PEI to Moncton, New Brunswick – Today we spent the morning in PEI, and the afternoon at the Hopewell Rocks. It’s been a really nice day. We started the morning in Charlottetown with a run down one of my favorite traveling trails- the Confederation Trail. The trail technically covers a large portion of…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Seventeen

– Truro, Nova Scotia to Charlottetown, PEI – I think I mentioned yesterday that our hotel last night in Truro wasn’t very nice, but we did find a nice running trail. That worked out exactly as planned. Just a short distance away from our hotel on foot was a very nice, light gravel trail. Ripley,…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Sixteen

– Halifax, Nova Scotia to Truro, Nova Scotia – Boy was it rainy today. It started with our run this morning, which was at first foggy, then misty, then decidedly damp. Not long after we made it to the hotel, it began to rain in earnest. It was never heavy, but it rained for a…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Fifteen

– North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Halifax, Nova Scotia – Today’s run was only so-so. We’re pretty tired today anyway, but still, the only place to really run in North Sydney is either on a track, or on the sidewalk. In the end, we went with the sidewalk, which was unfortunate since it was trash…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Fourteen

– Corner Brook, Newfoundland to North Sydney, Nova Scotia – Finally, the last ferry. It had better be, anyway. I didn’t get sick, so I’m pleased about that, but it didn’t improve my opinion of boats at all. In fact, no one got sick, and we all had a decent journey. We were up at…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Thirteen

– St. John’s, Newfoundland To Corner Brook, Newfoundland – Our run today in St. John’s was really nice. We started near the capitol building, and ran down a nicely gravelled path to a little lake in front of Signal Hill. It’s a very popular place to run, too, as we ran into a few single…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Twelve

– Clarenville, Newfoundland to St. John’s, Newfoundland – It was pretty misty this morning in Clarenville. It wasn’t supposed to rain, at least according to the weather app on my phone last night, but it eventually did, though thankfully not until Mark, Ripley and I were almost done with our run. Clarenville is full of…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Eleven

– Deer Lake, Newfoundland to Clarenville, Newfoundland – Today started off pretty quiet, but it ended with a bang. As usual, we began our morning at 5am, and since it wasn’t raining, we got to go run. There aren’t many places to run in these little towns in Newfoundland. I feel like we had more…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Ten

– Deer Lake, Newfoundland to Gros Morne National Park – So we woke up this morning to rain. The stupid rain ruined my chance to go for a run, as it was too wet and cold to be worth doing. We would’ve just come back soaked, and who knows if our sneakers would’ve been dry…

Atlantic Canada Trip: Day Nine

– Blanc-Sablon, Quebec to Deer Lake, Newfoundland – Well, we’ve survived the day. We were out of bed by 5am, as usual, but today we immediately hopped in the shower and rushed through bathing and packing. We were totally ready to leave just after 6:30am Quebec time, which is a little hilarious since we didn’t…
