Seven cars left Moncton meeting up with one from Sackville and another from Amherst at the NB NS border. At the Military museum we learned lots about past wars and our history and had a great tour with Ray Coulson, curator who is very knowledgeable.  We then had breakfast/lunch at a local restaurant.  We then met up with another NS car and went on to Joggins fossil cliffs, and toured their exhibit.  We came back to Amherst though an alternate route, very scenic drive.  Thanks to Rick and Helen Estabrooks for a great day had by all.
