Headed to Saint John
After a long day adventuring in Quebec, we hit the road toward our first stop in New Brunswick. Saint John was about 4-5 hours from Quebec, and since we left late we had to had to stop along the way for dinner. Luckily we found the most romantic river side town that had a water-front restaurant.
We stopped along the roadside to change into more dinner appropriate clothes. Of course, my husband saw this as a perfect photo opportunity.
The view made this place well worth the detour. We felt like we were on the Titanic.
We arrived in Saint John super late in Saint John. We stayed the night at a bed and breakfast that served these most delicious french toast we've ever had. We epxplored the city and churches for a bit, and got some coffee before heading out that morning toward our main destination.
We found this adorable dog roaming the countryside as we made our way.
After making another million stops, (that's how we roll), we landed in this beautiful bay area as sun was setting. Before checkin into our home for the night, we drove till we reached the water, which was just at the end of the road. We couldn't believe what we saw. The sands stretched out so far that we could barely see where the ocean began.
We stayed with a lovely couple, whom I have named our honeymoon grandma and grandpa. They were filled with stories of their own travels and life, and made us so much delicious food, that we weren't sure we wanted to leave...ever!

Traveling the Bay
Along our travels in New Brunswick we came across Mr. McCabe's Home Made Ice Cream shop. It was super delicious, but pretty dang expensive. Still, it was worth the stop to talk to Mr. McCabe about his love for making ice cream : )
We also stopped in Cape Fundy at a resturant called Cape House. It had a beautiful view of the bay, and they staff was so sweet to us. We got extra special treatment, probably because we were the only people there, but also because apparently not many couples come to Canada on their honeymoon. My husband had reserved us a table (in an empty resturant), so they excitedly greeted us upon our arrival. We felt kind of like celebrities ; )
If you are traveling along the bay in New Brunswick make sure you stop by Hopewell Rocks - they are MAGNIFICENT! Check the time and tide before you do, because you will want to be able to walk down and out to the rocks. If the tide is too high, or it's too dark, you might not have enough time. Allow yourself enough time to walk to whole stretch of beach at Hopewell. So worth it.
