We left Houlton Maine behind, though we only drove 30 miles. As we entered Canada, we had to pay duty on the Liquor we brought with us. Now we didn’t have to pay any duty when entered Canada last year; however, the Houlton ME entry point is one of the most strict in all of Canada. So we paid the duty and went on our way. Canada Day was yesterday July 1st, so all the RV parks near central New Brunswick were all full for the weekend, we were luck to find this wonderful small RV park,Cosy Cabins RV Park, on the St. John River in Woodstock. Not a lot of amenities; however, the view is outstanding. We went to the local farmers market where we got some locally canned jams, salsa, rhubarb; we got some lamb, yellow eyed peas and other items. We then drove to Hartland, were the worlds longest covered bridge is located, it is 1282 long, as traditions has it, you have to walk to the center of the bridge so you can kiss your lover, well we did just that, we then drove to the Covered Bridge potato chip factory and saw how they make “kettle chips”. We visited The Connell House, Connell was the postmaster and he issued several stamps one of which had his picture instead of the Queen of England, he quite and moved away. Also, in the Connell House was a display of the memorabilia of Tappen Abney, a New Yorker "environmentalist" we documented how the native indians build birch bark canoes and he documented their language. We will leave for St. Martins New Brunswick on Monday July 4th, where we will stay for several day so we can explore more of New Brunswick especially Hopewell Rocks where the difference between high and low tide can be a much as 54 feet.
