We sure enjoyed our summer in the Maritime provinces in Canada. New Brunswick was the most unexpected. I don’t know how it got the nick-name “the drive-through province” because I really enjoyed the history, the beautiful old homes, the St. John River (especially our fantastic campsite there), not to mention the Hopewell Rocks at the Bay of Fundy. Cape Breton in Nova Scotia was beautiful with its pink granite rocks big and small. PEI was indeed “the gentle province” all flat and soft around the edges with the best red sand beaches. Newfoundland was PEI’s opposite with its rugged shores and cliffs. All in all, we had a fantastic time.
We crossed the border into Maine and got a thorough review at the border. I guess it is not that ordinary for a rig from BC to cross from New Brunswick into Maine and say “we’re staying for 6 months!” (which is the maximum allowed without filing complicated tax forms). Especially young folks like us 🙂 Anyway all they found were a couple of tomatoes, so I guess we’re doing ok!
Our first stop in Maine was Acadia National Park and I made these three images at the Cobblestone Bridge at Jordan Creek. Help me decide which of these should go into my “go with the flow” portfolio. More than one would be too similar – I have to choose. I like the front of the bridge in the first image, the underside of the bridge in the second image, and the way the water splits in the third image. If only I managed to capture all of these features in one photograph! Then I would be a real pro.
