In July 2019 I visited a good friend of mine in Moncton, New Brunswick, and was given an excellent tour of some spectacular coastline in New Brunswick.
St. Martins |Fundy Trail Parkway
St. Martins is a village along the Fundy Trail Parkway and a place to witness the phenomenal tidal wonders of Fundy Bay, home of the largest tidal ranges is the world.
The caves near St. Martins are fun to visit, just keep an eye on the tides, haha.
Fuller Falls | Fundy Trail Parkway
Further along the Fundy Trail Parkway and just a short jaunt from a parking lot is Fuller Falls. There’s a cable trail to get down to the falls to get the best view.
Long Beach | Fundy Trail Parkway
The fog was rolling in, was very peaceful
Big Salmon River | Fundy Trail Parkway
The Big Salmon River was one of the most important and prosperous lumbering communities along the Fundy coastline, if not all of Canada. William Davidson saw the value of the land and built the first saw mill at Big Salmon River in 1845. You can see remnants of the saw mill in the photo below.
This 284 m suspension footbridge over the Big Salmon River was the site of the original covered bridge until washed out in a Spring freshet.
Bouctouche Dunes, Northumberland Strait
The 12 km stretch of sand dunes are accessible from the Irving Eco-Centre developed by J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI) and offer a blend of recreational opportunities and learning experiences. They are among the few remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coastline of North America.
