Sep 14, 2015 - Bay of Fundy

Today we went east across New Brunswick. It's very beautiful and we were very pleasantly surprised!! In many ways it reminds us of entering the mountain parks, just before you reach the big Rockies. Quite hilly, very treed, big rivers, rock walls along the highway. The majority of our 3.5 hour drive was on new divided highways. This province has spent loads of money on infrastructure. The trees are just starting to change, still predominately green with some beginning to show red, orange and yellow. When it goes completely, it will be...

Sep 4, 2015 - St Martins, New Brunswick

Days 74 - 76 (September 1st - 3rd) St Martins, NB We left Holden at 8:10 am heading for our crossing into Canada at St Stephens, New Brunswick. We knew when we got there we would be in Atlantic Daylight Savings time which meant we would lose another hour. Our destination for the day was St Martins, 193 miles from Holden. The 91 mile drive on Maine highway 9 from Holden to St Stephens was mainly two lane with rolling hills and a few steep grades. The weather was good so we made good time. When we got to the border we had a choice: we could...

Sep 5, 2014 - traveling to the Bay of Fundy

Traveling toward the Bay of Fundy today. What an adventure. Stopped on Campobello Island and Roosevelt's summer cottage. This is where he contracted polio. Then on to Deer island via ferry. I wasn't sure Edie was going to get on after we saw it. Real small but very sturdy and lots of fun. Traveled the length of Deer island, via some long cuts, and on to another ferry to take us to New Brunswick and to the Century Campground. All in all a long and adventuresome day. Cocktails tasted real good at the campsite before our spaghetti dinner....

Aug 19, 2013 - St. Martin, New Brunswick

Depart: Digby, Nova Scotia Arrive: St. Martin, New Brunswick Today’s drive took us through the Annapolis Valley, a part of it is signed the “Apple Capital” of Nova Scotia. Try saying “Apple Capital” fast a few times. Part of the drive is along the Bay of Fundy. The tides in Fundy Bay are the highest in the world, a phenomena caused from the configuration and length of the bay itself. The difference between high and low tides can exceed 30 to 40 feet on average. We wanted to spend some time camping on the water so we headed to a little...

Jul 23, 2013 - St. Martins, New Brunswick

Fascinating fact: The Atlantic Provinces - New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia are actually east of northern Maine, not north! We had an uneventful trip from Bangor to St. Martins, NB. We breezed right through Canadian Customs, answered a few questions and we were on our way. We took CA 1 to just past St. Johns then CA 111 to St. Martins on the Bay of Fundy. The weather was sunny and cool when we arrived yesterday but today a storm came in around noon and its been blowing and raining ever since. St. Martins is a tiny little...

Aug 22, 2012 - Fundy Bay & The Fundy Trail

Day 10, Wednesday, August 22, 2012, Along the Fundy Trail. Spent a leisurely day driving from St. John to Fundy National Park, but never made our destination. Covered about 65 miles and decided to camp at a site on the shore of the Bay of Fundy, at St. Martins, NB. Drove the Fundy Trail, 20 well-maintained miles one way to its end, and then back. Very scenic, except it is EXACTLY like driving along the North Shore. Only difference is the tidal change, for which the Fundy Bay is noted. Saw many tour buses and taxies with couples or groups,...

Aug 12, 2011 - Fundy Trail and A Bright Full Moon

We got up this morning and found out we could wash the RV at this park. So after a few buckets of soapy water, the RV looks great--also got rid of about 3000 miles of bugs! So, prior to lunch we decided to head out to the Fundy Trail--a scenic drive along the Bay of Fundy. Then the sea fog or marine layer started blowing in. We decided to go ahead and try the trail. The fog came and went and then returned. The land and sea scenes were really striking with the fog. After that we headed home and took a break. Around 6 pm the fog broke and we...

Aug 11, 2011 - Canada OH Canada

We had a great day driving to Canada. The clearance leaving Canadain Customs was only 12' 6"---The RV is 12' 9"! So they had to stop traffic to let us wiggle around a few cars. Otherwise we would still be in the USA! We are in St. Martins, New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy. We can see the Bay outside our rear window. The highest tides in the world are in the Bay of Fundy. More exploring tomorrow. The previous day in Acadia, it rained all day--not to bad since we did laundry, went food shopping, got fuel for the truck, and generally...

Jul 4, 2011 - St. Martins New Brunswick Canada

After we left Woodstock we stopped at Kings Landing, a site where Loyalist came when they immigrated to Canada. This village was moved when the St John river was damed up. We continued onto to St Martins a wonderful village on the Bay of Fundy. From here we visited the Fundy Parkway Trail - a wonderful trip along the Bay of Fundy coast line. We also visited the Fundy National Park and waked the ocean bottom to the caves near St. Martins. We drove to the Quaco Head Lighthouse, there we saw the rocks we could see from our RV site. St. Martins...

Jun 5, 2011 - Fundy Trail and St Martins

We left Fredericton and headed east to the small hamlet of St Martins on the Bay of Fundy, home of the World’s Highest Tides. The original name of the community was “Goolwagagek” a Micmac word meaning “haunt of the hooded seal” which was later translated to Quaco by 1762. In its time St Martins was the third largest producer of wooden sailing ships on the eastern seaboard of North America.The last vessel was launched in 1919. Our campground was just on the edge of the village and we had great views of the Bay of Fundy and the local sea...

Sep 9, 2010 - St. Martins

Today, waking up to semi-clear skies,we decided to head to St. Martins, a tiny community about 40 KMS from St. John, on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. Back in the days of sail it was the home of many ship building firms and over 500 sailing vessels had been built there. It seems that every road in the Maritimes leads to a Tim Horton's, and sure enough we just so happened to come across one. So after the required coffee we continued on our way to St. Martins. Today St. Martins major draw is the twin covered bridges,the St. Martins caves,...
