Windows from the East Coast – November 14, 2022

thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Windows https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2022/11/14/monday-window-november-14-2022/

I wish I had more examples of windows from my visit to New Brunswick but because so many museums and places of interest were closed for the season, we concentrated more on the scenery and beaches. Not sure what the wine was like at Magnetic Hill winery. We drove by on our back to the airport and stopped for only a few minutes.

Texture Tuesday – November 8, 2022

love the texture of peeling paint

These lobster bouys are painted different colours to identify the fishing boat that they come from and it makes it easier for the fisherman to see where their lobster traps are located. Over time, of course the paint begins fade and blister.

On my recent travels to New Brunswick I came across a few interesting resting places.

Day Two in New Brunswick…Walking on the Ocean Floor, Lobster Roll, Bay of Fundy National Park and Cape Enrage

Sunday was a very busy day. We started out at 9:00 in the morning and drove to Hopewell Rocks. When we got there the tide was out and we were able to walk on the ocean floor and explore the caves.

Alma’s Lobster Shop
Lobster Roll

After walking 8000 steps we were in need of some nourishment so be we drove to the town of Alma. We stopped at the Lobster Store and I ordered a lobster roll. It was on my bucket list of one of the things I wanted to eat while out here. Unfortunately, I have discovered that some of my tastebuds are not working as they should since I had COVID. As a result I am not able to give a fair review of the meals that I’ve eaten.

After our meal we drove to Fundy National Park. This was one of the few places in New Brunswick that was actually opened to the public, Most places are closed after Thanksgiving but it doesn’t stop people from visiting. You have to park outside the entrance and walk to get in. All the information centres and refreshment facilities are closed. The upside is that you can see these places for free.

Lookout over the Bay of Fundy

Our last stop on our way home was the lighthouse at Cape Enrage.

Cape Enrage derives its name from the large reef that extends south into Chignecto Bay, which causes the water off the point to become extremely violent, particularly at half tide when the reef is partially exposed and the water is moving quickly.

After being on the road for seven hours it was good to get back to my room and relax for an hour before dinner.
