Where I stayed
When we got to the bay floor, it was easy walking. It was cool to walk around each of the formations
Our next stop was the Reversing Falls in Saint John. We were not going to stop in Saint John, but we had some extra time to make the stop. It was cool to see the fresh water colliding with the incoming tide. It created some wild looking currents. The ducks were just swirling around in the currents.
Kim wanted to do some shopping at the City Market. It was housed in the old market house for the city of Saint John. When we walked in, you could see many produce, meat, and seafood vendors. Once we got in further, the "artists" with their wares were everywhere. If we stopped and looked too long, they would come over and explain their product. At one of the produce stands, some guy came out and started talking to Kim about Dulce. It is seaweed that is cleaned (hopefully) and dried in the sun. The guy swears that it is like potato chips
We stayed in the Blair House B&B in St Stephan, NB. It is advertised as the most British of the B&B’s in New Brunswick. The owner came from England with his parents. At one point his parents started the B&B and he eventually took it over. It was a very nice place to stay. At 9:00 he would bring out decaf tea and cookies. We had not really spent any time at night in the B&B’s common rooms, but we wanted to see what the evening tea was about. Everyone was interested in the Lizzie Borden B&B and the schooner trip.
