New Brunswick. That week was the perfect storm of Maritime Canada – seafood, whales, boating, tides, Celtic heritage, and family.
My week of New Brunswick goodness started in the capital city of Fredericton with a big dose of the Scottish heritage unique to the Maritime Provinces. Then we went to the famous Bay of Fundy to spend some time observing the highest tides in the world (changes of 30+ feet) in this unique environment. We got our sea legs out on the water and have spent every evening eating seafood feasts.
With my parents along, I can say that we may not agree on all things – but we can all agree on seafood. The fresher the better and there is never such a thing as too much lobster. That why today we are spending our day in the little fishing village of Alma learning about the lobster fishing industry and stuffing our faces with the freshest catch around!
I love traveling seaside! New Brunswick lobster! What’s your favorite thing to dip it in?
St Andrews By-The-Sea truly is a picture perfect town! Loved doing a morning run down main street.
The @NBHighlandGames are in full swing. I love kilts! #BeAScot
Every night should begin with an oyster shooter. Who agrees?!
An old railway bridge converted to pedestrian use in Fredericton – one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world!
Took a stroll thru the meticulously landscaped @KingsbraeGarden in St. Andrews – beautiful buds all around!
Every morning should begin w a Minke whale saying hello!
Spent the evening soaking in an old wood fired hot tub @ridgebacklodge – surrounded by my glamping dome & pine trees!
