Bob Brennecke, of Ballwin, Mo., is pictured in Nova Scotia on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, a few weeks ago. “We then went to Prince Edward Island (my now favorite place),” he said. “Everything is pristine and manicured, everyone friendly, the sea washes in and out constantly. The Bay of Fundy was unbelievable, the power of the sea and the tide.” He took a friend along with him.
