Into the Past

 


Our ferry crossing from Newfoundland was smooth as glass - such a relief! 

We spent the day at Fort Louisbourg, another of Canada’s National Historic Sites. Parks Canada does a wonderful job of interpreting the past with knowledgeable guides and costumed interpreters who took us back to 1744 when the French controlled this part of Canada. 

Stories galore.

  7. I do wish you would write a book of your travel across your magnificent country, so beautiful and historic. I know it would be written with so much understanding and appreciation. And your photographs? So many times I've taken my phone to my husband and showed him one on your Instagram account saying, here, you just have to see this.

  13. Lorrie, I just took a bit of time to catch up on some of your recent posts. What a treat to come along on your adventure! You are seeing some splendid sights and I thank you for sharing these scenes and moments from your beautiful country! I can imagine that I would be homesick too, but, also like you, would choose to relish the moments knowing that they are limited.
