St. Martins, NB

We did a very quick trip to St. Martins on the holiday Monday. It's my other favourite place in New Brunswick, tied with St. Andrews. St. Martins was a very prosperous shipbuilding community on the Bay of Fundy, and is now a quaint old village that comes to life in the summer.
In this pic, you can see the harbour at low tide, the lighthouse that's now used as a tourist centre, and two covered bridges (the second one is very tiny and off to the right).

St. Martins is full of house porn. Imagine having the Bay of Fundy in your backyard.

The pornalicious St. Martins Country Inn, an old sea captain's house. I have been wanting to stay here for years. I would love to spend a weekend in October here.

St. Martins has a long, rocky beach with seacaves. This is all covered twice a day when the tide comes in.

The Quaco lighthouse, overlooking the bay. So peaceful.

You can't see anything, but on the cliff is the Fundy Trail Parkway. Fundy National Park is on the southeast side of the province, and plan is to eventually join the two. I'll bet I could make a hooked rug out of this pic. Someday.
