Nova Scotia Circle 2 – From Moncton to ⁩Truro

It was a cold night outside but thanks to extra blankets a nice one inside the car. I woke up to a blue sky and went to the next Tom Hortons for some coffee and internet.

The Petitcodiac River is full of red mud. Makes for some very nice green and red contrasts.

Low tide – the river is far out. When the tide of the Bay of Fundy pushes in, the water comes all the way to the shore.
You wait in the shade!

That mud is thick – if you throw bigger stones, they will sink. Smaller ones will just stay on top.

The forest makes for a nice green contrast
Time to head back to the car and move on
Apple Tree
The season for apples. I stopped many times when I saw trees. Most of them do not get harvested anymore. Thanks!



This church as well as the rectory and cemetery was built in 1842 by Mi’kmaq Indians and Acadians and is known as Chapelle Sainte-Anne de Beaumont. It is situated near the village of Memramcook, a Mik’maq word meaning “Crooked River” for the chocolate-looking river that runs through the valley. Here you found an important cultural and religious milieu connecting Acadian and the local Mi’kmaq culture which embraced Catholicism after chief Membertou conversion in 1610. This significant but somewhat forgotten cultural convergence also brought about a very significant choice by the Mi’k maq of Sainte-Anne as patron Saint, which also coincided with the Acadian National Society designation in 1881 of Sainte-Anne August 15th anniversary as an annual Acadian national holiday.

They put new stones for all the babies that died a long time ago
The Medicine Wheel
The Medicine Wheel

The medicine wheel (also called the Sun Dance Circle or Sacred Hoop) is an ancient and sacred symbol used by many Tribes. It signifies Earth’s boundary and all the knowledge of the universe.

In the old days when we were a strong and happy people, all our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation, and so long as the hoop was unbroken, the people flourished. The flowering tree was the living center of the hoop, and the circle of the four quarters nourished it.
