ST. ANDREWS BY THE SEA, NEW BRUNSWICK

Saturday September, 29, 2012 ( part two)

I had to throw all of my clothes away so these would fit in my suitcase.

The resort coastal village of St. Andrews By The Sea was the next destination.  The highways in New Brunswick are  two lane. The fall colors are  striking, though not nearly at peak I am told.  I also quickly notice that New Brunswick is  clearly  French Canadian. The  highway and street signs are in both English and  French, as are menus, tourist booklets, etc, etc.  It is common to hear people speaking French  or if  they are speaking English, many times  it is with a French accent.

The  200 year old town  of  St. Andrews is  attractive with its well-kept old  homes and churches. I found it easy and interesting to walk .  The water front area has an active wharf,  shops , several  restaurants and  whale watching tours.  It was  low tide and while all the dinghies are tied up at in the wharf, the larger boats were anchored in the deeper water.  Fog was rolling in added a new perspective to the town.

Tomorrow I head for St. Martin and Alma.
