I printed out your articles for future reference as I look to next years travel plans. Thank you for the excellent photographs as well as an informative narrative.

I'm planning a mid-July trip to the northeastern US and parts of Canada looking for Family History sites in Nova Scotia. A few tips on regional botanical gardens and other natural sites would be helpful for trip planning. I noticed two Ecological Preserves relatively close to your home town. Are there entrance fees, camping sites, etc. My road map shows scores of Historical Sites through the eastern seaboard. Do any of them have noteworthy, associated display gardens. Do you recommend any particular ferry service to Newfoundland coming from Nova Scotia?
Thanks for your time.

There are two ferry services to to Port-aux-Basques and the other to Argentia...the first is 7 hours, the second 13. Argentia will get you within a 2 hour drive from St. John's while the Port-aux-Basques means a 10 hours drive to St. John's. We have several ecological reserves around the Island...there is no charge to enter them. They do not have camping sites but we do have lots around within a short distance of the reserves. Our historical sites in NL have no gardens. In NS, Annapolis Royal does have a lovely BG.

Look me up in the local St. John's botanical garden if you get to St. John's!
