St. Andrews is a very charming town

The Fairmont at St. Andrews by the sea

Oak Bay Campground is a deteriorating campground that will probably just get worse with winter. It is situated between St. Stephen and St. Andrews by the sea in New Brunswick. St. Stephen is on the Canada-Maine border. There we toured the Chocolate Museum housed in the original factory of Ganong chocolates. I now have a much greater appreciation for what it takes to make a good piece of chocolate. St. Andrews is a pretty resort town near Campobello Island -- FDR's boyhood home and presidential retreat. St. Andrew's is on Fundy Bay. The tidal effects are not as great as those seen at Five Islands but still impressive. On Sept. 12 we left Canada. We really enjoyed our stay but were happy to say goodbye to $5/gal. gas, twice the U.S. price for wine, and all that converting from the metric system. It was good to be back in the USA.
