Terry, Doug & Roxie's Canadian Maritime Trip 2013 travel blog

Standing on the ocean floor looking out at Minister's Island


Driving through Maine there were wild blueberries growing everywhere along the side of the road. At this time of year, the bushes are very close to the ground. It almost looks like fields of weeds. They harvest the blueberry bushes the first two weeks in August by shaking the bushes and picking the berries off the ground. Before the berries are harvested, they "rent" bees and the bees are brought in to pollinate the blueberry flowers. Also along the side of the road there are many colorful lupine growing wild.

After we crossed over through customs and the Canadian Border into the Providence of New Brunswick, the time changed to Atlantic time which is one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time.

We drove 193 miles today to reach the Kiwanis Oceanfront Campground on St. Andrews-By-The-Sea. At our campsite, we look out our front window at the Bay of Fundy. We then car pooled into St. Andrews for dinner at the Gables Restaurant. After dinner, Rod led us on a short tour around the village. We drove out on Bar Road that is a road that goes across the ocean's floor to Minister's Island. At high tide we would have been standing in at least 10 feet of water.
