Kejimkujik National Park

A few photos to add from last night before the opera. We met the bookstore cat earlier in the day and he was outside meowing at us when we were walking downtown in the evening. His name is Henry.


I was attacked by more stairs. This time I was looking at the tide going out and totally didn’t notice the boardwalk end.


Quite an impressive tidal difference of 39′! Did is about half out in their photo.


Today we slept in a bit to recover from our late evening. We were on the road soon after we woke up. We drive 40 minutes to Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site. We got our maps and XPlorer books and were off to explore. We hiked about 6 km of trails along rivers full or trout!


One of the activities was to look for certain lichens and fungus. We really enjoyed this one.



This is Mill Falls. We were trying to avoid going off trail due to the ticks in the area.


This is lung lichen. It was really amazing looking. It has a larger surface area and grows off of the trees so it breaths better.


We drove a 14km gravel road to Eel Weir. The weir is over the river and in the river are eel dams that the Mi’kmaq people used to help trap and catch eels. They would smoke and eat the eels.


We learned about the pictographs left in the area and had to copy some into our books.


This was the site of their encampment and the land is almost the same today.


We picked this was a great spot to sit and work on our books.


We hiked a trail to an old farmland. I loved the creepy looking trees.


We earned our badges and headed back to camp for the late afternoon. The campground is getting really crowded. Two days ago we were the only people around. Now people are piling in and filling up all the spaces. We got some laundry done knowing that since it was crowded the machines would get busier.


We have met a few kids to play with at the campground but have been enjoying hanging out in the motorhome listening to Anne of Green Gables on audio book. Oh, i also mentioned the graveyard behind the motorhome. Here are a few photos taken from the edge. We can see about 12 tombstones if we peak between the trees.
