our adventures

East Coast trip – Day 4

On Tuesday we had another early morning to get us packed up and on the 9:30 ferry off Grand Manan. It was a beautiful morning and we were reminded of how lucky we were to have such good weather throughout our stay on the coast.




I will admit, the drive through interior New Brunswick on the Trans-Canada highway is one of the most boring drives I have ever done. If we did the trip again I would plan to drive back through Maine. New Brunswick even managed to make the longest covered bridge in the WORLD boring.

Our last camping stop was outside of majestic Edmundston on the mighty Madawaska River.

Or so I thought. In reality, it was a patch of forrest located spitting distance from the Trans-Canada Highway on a body of water that doubles as a mosquito breeding ground (husband-giving-you-the-finger not included).

The camp ground looks nice, but you’d probably hear less traffic in downtown Toronto.

On the last day of our trip we travelled west to the Saint Lawrence River and enjoyed a beautiful drive along the river and through small towns.

After an hour or so we headed east towards Thetford Mine so that I could show Kirby the asbestos mines. Unfortunately, the road that used to go alongside the mine collapsed a few years ago in to the bottom of the mine so the views aren’t nearly as impressive.

We eventually pulled in to Lennoxville and got to hang out with my brother and Sabrina and the boys for the night.

All-in-all, it was a great trip and we enjoyed exploring these new places.
