More research
vacation: Well, I started to do a sort of day by day thing so I could figure out when I needed to be booking Ferry’s and such to Newfoundland. Create a couple of calendar points and figure out if you can get there and then get back there in time and see if there are actually ships coming and going when you would like them to. So far so good. But when it is ironclad I will have to call the Marine-Atlantic folks for reservations as I don't have enough info. 90%. but not quite.

And I also spent a bit of looking in and around the Bay of Fundy. First contemplating a Ferry crossing from Digby NS to Saint John NB. time permitting on the return leg. And then researching tidal activity in the Bay of Fundy. Especially in this area on the New Brunswick side called Hopewell Rocks which is near Moncton.. You can, depending on the time if the day, either tour around the rocks on foot and walk on the bottom of the Bay, or about 12 hours later by boat 40 or so feet - about 15M higher up. But get there at the wrong time and you sit on your hands for half a day waiting for that activity.

On a couple of the days the low tide is in the morning and I think getting some sunrise shots of those rocks would be excellent. All of that - there is a lot to do down east - took some time. And given that you are researching three provinces, it is a question of filpping between web sites and maps of different designs, ease of use and scale. And trying to remember where you are. I won't even get into crossing time zones yet. I assume I will all of a sudden realize the time is wrong like I did when I crossed into Kentucky from Indiana in the fall of 2003 not realizing it was an hour earlier.

Off to CAA to get some decent maps before work. got to feed the knowledge engine.

And a super special thanks to Leanne and Chris for Loaning me the GPS and mapping software to try out before I go on my trip. Serious geek drool factor here. I look forward to seriously not getting lost err, too lost. :)

Carpe Diem
