Maine/Canada August 2011 Trip

Here is an overview of our trip to attend the Violette Family Reunion and touring the Atlantic Provinces of Canada. Much of our trip was to visit lighthouses along the way.
On August 2, 2011 we flew into Halifax and rented a Ford Fusion. Over the next two weeks we put over 2700 miles on the car. Above is a rough map of our route. We made blog postings of most of these locations. To see these postings click here and then select the category of your interest.
