St. Martins, New Brunswick, Canada


August 2005


This little tourist town is tucked in along the eastern coast on the Bay of Fundy.  The campground we stayed at was right along the beach.  Tides there are incredibly high and very low.  At low tide boats in the little harbor nestle on the bottom till the tide comes back in and there are several sea caves there that can be explored during low tide.  Not surprising, the seafood there is wonderful.  We went to Mass at the church there and met Father Bill Elliot who spent 6 or 7 years in Corpus Christi working with Rueben Bonilla and the Boys Club there - what a small world!  We also spent several hours exploring the 11-mile Fundy Trail, a parkway that follows the rugged contour of the bay with lots of places to stop for picnics, hiking, biking, and just plain looking.
