Jim's sister, Joanne, came to visit us from Edmonton. She's been to Fredericton before, so we decided to tour some other parts of the province. First stop, a trip to St. Andrews by-the-Sea.
St. Croix Island.
Campobello Island. We had never been there ourselves, so I was really looking forward to it. All I knew was that it had been the summer home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
You can access Campobello either by taking the car ferry from St. George, NB to Deer Island and then taking another ferry to Campobello, or you can drive into the state of Maine and access it by bridge. It seemed quite funny to go through customs to get into the States and then back through Canadian customs to end up in Campobello.
Taken from the tourist information stop in Campobello, you can see the town of Lubec, Maine. If you go there, do not miss a visit to Monica's Chocolates! Not only are the chocolates amazing, but Monica was born in Peru and you can buy beautiful Peruvian made sweaters.
The sun set on a terrific day. We loved Campobello Island and would return in a heartbeat. It would be nice to stay over night and really do it justice.
Confederation Bridge, an amazing engineering feat. The 8-mile long bridge opened in 1997 after Island residents narrowly voted yes to a fixed link.
Blue Crest Cottages, near Rustico and Cavendish.
