    Welcome to Canada!

    June 9, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We finally arrived in Canada -- St. Andrews by the Sea. The campground is beautiful and we are directly facing the ocean in our RV. It is a great place to walk the beach with Zoey at low tide. We have joined 24 other RV's to begin our Canadian Maritime Adventure.Read more

    Beautiful day walking along Passamaquoddy Bay at low tide to the Pendleton Lighthouse. Zoey loves being free!

    Beautiful sunny day exploring St. Andrews. After walking the beach, we stopped by the historic Algonquin Hotel. The highlight of the day was Kingsbrae Gardens with its many themed garden areas and sculptures. Afterward we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the garden cafe with our group.Read more

    Kingsbrae Garden

    August 30, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    This afternoon we went to the Kingsbrae Garden, a 27 acre plot with around 20 different sub-gardens: roses, perennials, pond, “scents and sensitivity” garden, an Acadian forest, a maze, a labyrinth, farm animals, and even a secret garden!

    It was hard to choose the photos today, I might have to add others later.

    Onshore at St Andrews

    August 30, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    St. Andrews is full of color and charm, and easy to be in. People are very helpful, and when on a boat, it seems we are always asking for help. Today the Wharfinger, Carl, took our propane tank with him on his scooter to get it filled for us a mile away.

    This morning was rainy, which means Laundry Day. It was a good thing, too, as it had been a while since the last time. 😬 Once we got it going (after David’s trip to the bank to exchange $10US for Canadian quarters)(which required a flurry of activity including managers), we found a restaurant for breakfast, and then walked around into the neighborhoods. We are guessing they have a severe deer problem, as we saw 6-7 deer helping themselves to the beautiful gardens just on our short walk. And they were not concerned about us one bit.

    Landed in St. Andrews, Canada

    August 29, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    We had a nice, easy day coming over, 2’ swells and 10-12 knots for a couple of hours. Once we reached the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, the water turned to glass. We watched dozens of porpoises playing, noticed a bird we hadn’t seen before, and experienced the Old Sow and the piglets.

    The Old Sow is an area where the incoming tidal current from the ocean meets the flow of the outgoing St. Croix River. About 3 hours before the tide change, the currents smash together and create whirlpools, eddies, and boils. They can overpower small boats. We came along about an hour after, and still saw the wild currents. David was at the helm and noticed the strong pull, while I was taking pictures. The pictures may not look very remarkable, until you realize that all the surrounding water was as smooth as glass, but would be interrupted by these eddies and juxtaposed currents. It was one of the most unusual oceanic events we have seen!!

    St Andrew's by the Sea

    August 3, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    This is the resort town that we went to so Gerard could go whale watching. It's full of tourists and claiming a few firsts. The Fairmont Algonquin Hotel is the first CP hotel. It was built then the town was built around it. It's crazy big, especially for a small town hotel.
    The hotel we stayed in claimed to be the first summertime hotel in North America (not sure what that means). It was probably pretty grand in its hey days. Would definitely go back to this town.
