The fall leaves were so brilliant and colorful on the drive to Canada. We were only a 2 1/2 hour drive from our campground in Holden, Maine. The weather was perfect for a fall drive. We drove to Saint Andrews-by-the-sea. It is one of Canada's oldest, best preserved, 18th century towns. It was recommended by a couple from Canada at our campsite. The town was very scenic. Sorta reminded me of Bar Harbor, Maine
It was chilly walking out on the Market Wharf. The sun was bright and the wind was crisp. Had a time trying to catch a shot of the Canadian flag, because of the wind.
I sorta......wanted to go out on one of the whale watching tour ships on Canda's Passamaguoddy Bay. My instincts kept saying "TOO COLD!! We stayed ashore and strolled the wharf and the historic St. Andrew's Harbor. You could see the Pendleburg Light House and the shops on Water Street.
Later in the afternoon we drove the Water Street's picturque drive along the coast. Pulled off and enjoyed walking the rocky trail along the shore. Leon picked up a piece of driftwood for Donna to make a candleholder to sit on the ledge in her bathroom (That she's been wanting). AHa!! Now she can have one from Canada.
Picked up a few sea shells also. Let's hope we get back through customs.
Getting back into the USA we stopped in Ellsworth, Maine. Had a delicious meal at Union Bay Lobster Pot. The reviews were great and it certainly met our expectations of lobster. The steamed clam in the shell I could pass on next time.
