    Kejimkujik National Park

    June 15, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Das Wetter ist uns wieder wohlgesonnen und wir nutzen den Tag für eine Mini-Wanderung zu einer Bucht mit Bootsverleih. Auf dem Weg sehen wir unzählige Eichhörnchen und ein paar Streifenhörnchen, die sich hier anscheinend sehr wohl fühlen. Die Paddeltour im Doppelkajak auf dem Kejimkujik Lake ist bei dem Wetter schön, auch wenn wir eher in Schlangenlinien unterwegs sind. Wir rasten zwischendurch auf einer kleinen Insel und genießen die Sonne. Wieder zurück und auf dem Weg Richtung Campingplatz läuft uns dann ein Reh über den Weg, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Das war definitiv ein Highlight bislang. Morgen bleiben wir noch hier und erkunden den Park etwas weiter.Read more

    June 11, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 41 °F

    Kedji-ma-KOO-jik. OR, as I like to call it, kedji-ma-ma-MAgic! A beautiful little oasis in the middle of the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Owls and loon and gently burbling, delicate rivers made for a wonderful way to spend a night and an early morning. After a couple of hours on the Mersy River, I got back into the truck and put in some highway miles heading northeast. Generally heading toward Margaree and, hopefully some salmon fishing!Read more

    Keji national park, paddling session

    July 3, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    So with our arrival at the park we booked one night on the (front country) campground and for tonight a second one in the back country.

    But even more: Our tonight's camping place is a little site located in the woods along the lake where we are on our own and it can only be reached by boat. So we rented a kajak and started to head out towards the lake.

    The rental company warned us for heavy winds and after a little scouting tour without luagguage we agreed that 30km/h windspeed with peaks of 50km/h are to hard to paddle.

    So we got a little roof mounting kit for our Shevy Spark, put the doubke kajak on it and headed towards the south of the sea which was closer to our designated campsite and in better wind protection.

    48 hours in Kejimkujik NP

    August 10, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We briefly stopped in Peggy's Cove en route to Kejimkujik to see the the picturesque lighthouse. Arrival into Kejimkujik, just 2 hours from Halifax, was interesting. Up the road from the national park there were a number of wildfires, the biggest of which is still out of control, and the road was blocked beyond the entrance of the park. The lack of rain for more than a month here causing dangerous fire conditions. A good number of water bomber planes were in action to help fight the blaze, picking up water in Kejimkujik lake meaning canoeing on the lake was out. It also meant no campfires were allowed which scuppered our cooking plans...a quick trip to hire a gas cooker and propane in order! The oTENTik was lovely and overlooked the lake through the trees. We spent our first evening on the beach looking at the stars - as Keji is a dark sky preserve the sky was unbelievable and the Milky Way was quite clear. Chilly overnight here, colder than PEI certainly. We made the most of the full day here by going on 8 of the 15 day hiking routes to see the wide variety of trees, wildlife and lakes in the park. Great fun was had trying to ford Mill Falls without getting too wet but the wildlife was limited to that of the smaller varieties - no bears despite being in 'bear country'. We shared our evening meal with a rather cheeky chipmunk who was quite brave in his hunt for food! Ben made the most of his camera course in the evening, taking photos of the night sky. Up early this morning for the 6 hour journey back to New Brunswick and a night in Saint John before heading into the USA.Read more
