Travel Blogs from Saint John

High and Low Tides

A travel blog entry by larry_shirley


At 9am, we departed the park in a chartered bus to see the sights of Saint John and the surrounding area. Also, on board was a very informative guide who provided a very good narration of what we were seeing plus other interesting tidbits of information about Canada and the Maritimes.

First, we drove by the harbor area where we learned of the depth and breadth of the Irving family holdings. The patriarch of the family grew the firm from nothing to ...

Nothing up my sleeve

A travel blog entry by katgoaway


As Bullwinkle once said to Rocky, "watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat".

Many of the Arcadians who arrived in the Bay of Fundy during the 1640's and 50's used their methods of draining salt marshes using dykes or "Aboiteau", some traces of which can ...

A friendly Canadian welcome

A travel blog entry by cruise_buddies


... we made it. We saw boiling water and paid our Money to watch a video. The Saint John river is the largest in Canada and they used it to bring the logs down in days gone by. We cabbed back to the city, walked around the loyalist cemetery and the king's gardens. Down through the market square and back to wifi in the library. We are going to head to the museum, then back to the ...
