Trip Update

Day 1:  Mother Nature’s Paintbrush

Our first day was spent on the road, driving through Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.  Here is a summary of what we saw.






Pavement, tail lights, and some pretty trees.  Mother Nature has been very busy!  Surprisingly the prettiest colors were in PA, rather than farther north.  I was driving when we saw the best, so no pictures. 

We ended the day with lobstah rolls and a stroll through LL Bean in Freeport, ME.












Day 2:  We arrive in Canada

After many more miles of pavement, tail lights, and pretty trees


And a quick photo op along a creek


We finally arrived at the Canadian border.  The following pictures were taken from the car, so forgive the crookedness.


We spent some time at a Visitor Center in St. Stephen, where we received excellent advice and help, and even made a room reservation for later that night.  Also got a tip for a great spot for lunch, and it was awesome.  Then we took a short scenic loop before ending up in St. John for the night.






I included the last picture just to show the difference in the tide levels.  It was nearly low tide, and if you look at the rocks in the background, you can see how significantly the tide rises.  The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world, at approximately 50 feet!

Will continue when I get Wi-Fi again.
