What happened at Fishing Cove?

On Saturday June 26th in the early afternoon Jess and I left Leicester MA bound for Chéticamp, Nova Scotia. By 10pm that evening we were in Fredericton New Brunswick about half way to our destination. The most memorable part of that drive is really realizing that Maine isn't a small New England state.

Early on Sunday we got up and ventured on into Nova Scotia. After stopping at the visiting center
We made it to the Chéticamp campground in Cape Breton and the Highlands ...

Back to the states

Our day in Hamburg we really eventful. Paul and I got out to Schwerin to see a 16th century castle. It was really neat even though it was under improvement so some of the shots were not quite as cool as they could have been.

We are staying in Hotel Loven a small place just slightly more then a hostel. Copenhagen is cool.

Tomorrow we head down to Hamburg and we have some free time to spend around town. We will probably head to Schwerin to visit ...
