As we approach the end of our time here in New Brunswick I continue to be amazed at the opportunities house sitting has provided us. We have met some great people and had a chance to explore this small corner of another beautiful Canadian province.
While enjoying the entertainment we shared a table with some of the locals and ended up being invited to join them for dinner at a local restaurant. Enjoying a meal and soaking in local history from people who have grown up in an area is a serendipity of travel that simply can’t be found anywhere else.
The other opportunity we had to explore was driving across the St. Croix River to visit the state of Maine in the United Sates.
The day in eastern Maine was a bit disappointing due to the fact that the autumn colours still hadn’t started to make an appearance and because of the economic effects of COVID. We were unable to find a restaurant open to have lunch in. However we did stop in a small National Park Service interpretive park which, for me, made the trip worthwhile.
We have had an excellent time here in New Brunswick and have enjoyed meeting some fantastic people, but it is nearly time to move on. The joy truly is in the journey and we are ready to continue ours.
