  • Local fuel prices

    Fredericton Transportation

    The local stations finally broke the $1.00 per liter milestone in July 2005.Hurricane Katrina in Sept. 2005 had its repercussions on our local fuel prices, as it did everywhere. At that time, it shot up to $1.40 per litre. It was as high as that again after Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in mid-Sept. 2008, but dropped steadily after that, and remained...

  • English pub atmosphere

    Fredericton Restaurants

    The Snooty Fox is done up in an English pub style, with hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, and finished in oak. The lighting is kept low, and though it's not really a place to bring children, it is popular with the university and up crowd.Appetizers, lunch and dinner items run between CDN$ 7.00 - $16.00, which is quite reasonable for downtown...

    Saint John Restaurants

    I finally tried a lobster roll and all I can say is YUM! It came with fries and cost around $18, which seems a bit pricey for the size of the sandwich. If they had been cheaper, I would have gotten two, they were that good.Decor is what you might expect in a seaport bar & grill...buoys, nets, fake lobsters, etc.Big beer here is Moosehead - they...

  • Not My Cup Of Tea...or Bourbon

    Saint John Restaurants

    My husband and I had lunch at the Bourbon Cafe and we will not be returning. The food was modest in quantity, which is okay... it was lunch. But five... yes five... french fries is a bit skimpy by any standard. When we ordered, the waitress asked my husband if he would like an extra piece of chicken. He said yes and it was a wing... a scrawny...


Kouchibouguac National Park

  • Snowshoeing in the park

    Kouchibouguac National Park Things to Do

    If you have a pair of snowshoes that you haven't pulled out in awhile and are looking for a winter activity, there are a number of great trails to snowshoe at Kouchibouguac NP. They vary in length, from about 1 km up to 10.5 km or more. We recently snowshoed five of them, and the conditions were great ! The main ones are:Tweedie Trail = 1.2...

  • Impressed by Breakfast

    Kouchibouguac National Park Restaurants

    Both mornings before we set off for our day's biking activities, we fueled ourselves up with breakfast at our motel in Richibucto. Located in a bright room with nicely set-out tables, we opted for their buffet meal on both occasions. This consisted of your choice of scrambled eggs, home fried potatoes, beans, pancakes, bacon, sausages, toast, jam,...

    Kouchibouguac National Park Favorites

    Located on the east coast of New Brunswick, in Canada's Maritime Provinces, Kouchibouguac National Park preserves a small part of the unique ecosystem in this part of the world. The amazing coastal dunes here run for miles along the NB-side of Northumberland Strait, just north of the tip of the Province of Prince Edward Island.The nearest major...

  • Highway traffic

    Grand Manan Warnings and Dangers

    Not recommended for cyclists. It's ironic; this is seen as such a quiet little place, doesn't have big-city traffic. But motorists pass too fast, too close, with oncoming traffic. If you should happen to meet up with a driver and politely ask that they leave bikes a little more room, they are quite rude.The back roads are better, but stay off the...

  • Inn At Whale Cove A Disappointment!

    Grand Manan Restaurants

    We have been dining at the Inn at Whale Cove on and off for the past eleven years, and have found it to be an average dining experience enlivened primarily by the nostalgic atmosphere of the lovely old buildings and the beautiful view. Ms. Buckley's "fusion" of flavors tends to confuse the palette, so that nothing tastes of anything other than too...

  • Biking is the Way to Go!

    Grand Manan Transportation

    I don't really do a lot of biking, maybe two days a week to work and back on my cheap old bike from the local grocery store! It is only 18 km total distance each way, but it does involve a very long climb up out of the Saint John River valley when I am headed home. That exercise really helped my legs for the more modest hills on Grand Manan. The...

    Shediac Things to Do

    The main attraction in Shediac is the giant lobster statue. You can climb it and ride it if you want but just don't fall off. I saw lots of parents yelling at their kids to be careful. Recently, this statue even made it to a GM car commercial along with a number of other large statues in Canada. Stop by the gift shops beside the statue. One was...

  • Sandspit

    Shediac Things to Do

    Sandspit is more of a kids destination as it is a small place with carnival activities. However me and my friends are still kids at heart and we love to go on the Go-Karts. They also have water bumpers, mini-golf, arcades....

    Sussex Off The Beaten Path

    Not far from Sussex, atop Keirstead Mountain (not much more than a large hill in reality!) I pass by this cluster of old barns every time I drive down from Fredericton. They have been there as long as I can remember, even when I was just a child in the backseat of my parents car. On a 2004 trip, I got thinking about that and figured I had better...

    In recent years, residents of Sussex initiated a mural project that involves contributions from artists all over the world painting historic scenes on the side of the downtown buildings, depicting various aspects of life in this small town. Partially in answer to the denuding of the town caused by the loss of its majestic old trees due to Dutch Elm...

    Deer Island Things to Do

    The 'Old Sow' whirlpool off Deer Island Point is the most powerful one in the western hemisphere, ranking just below some of Europe's most famous ones (Moskstraumen and Saltstraumen in Norway and Corryvreken in Scotland) in the speeds that its waters reach (almost 28 kph or 17 mph). The Old Sow is caused by a combination of fast flowing waters due...

    Deer Island Sports & Outdoors

    For the C$50 (US$44) per person price of our 3-hour fishing expedition, Reid outfitted each of us with a rod, equipped with a lead weight and four baitless, sparkling lures with jigging hooks attached. Since we were going for bottom feeding schools of Atlantic Mackerel, the technique was to get out into medium depth water where we would switch the...

  • 'Piranha' Clams

    Deer Island Off The Beaten Path

    At first landing on Deer Island, we immediately turned off onto a small highway along the northwest coast, a dead-end road leading to Northern Harbour. It was an interesting ride and, just before we descended the steepest hill of the entire trip, I said to Russ that I hope we don't have to bike back up this thing! Sure enough, we soon came to the...


Magaguadavic Lake

  • Check Out the Beavers

    Magaguadavic Lake Things to Do

    At the far end of Little Magaguadavic Lake, we came upon one of its main infeeds - Stoney Brook. As the name implies, the granite boulders are getting more numerous by the minute as you pass from the lake into the mouth of the brook. Because these obstructions are covered in a black film of algae, and my canoe is made of traditional wood/canvas...

  • Gut-A-Moose Lodge

    Magaguadavic Lake Things to Do

    Gut-A-Moose Lodge is an old establishment on the shores of Little Magaguadavic Lake. It was originally built for hunting and fishing excursions, but, at the time that we were there it was owned by a consortium of school teachers. Since they get two months off every summer, it makes great sense to pool resources and share a place like this. The...

  • Open-Air Dining

    Magaguadavic Lake Restaurants

    There is nothing quite like being on an small island all by yourself! No sounds of human intrusions, just the wind in the pine trees, the waves lapping on the beach and the eerie call of the Common Loons! On a beautiful summer evening, it could not have been better! I always found that even simple food seemed to taste better when it was prepared...

    Bathurst Things to Do

    If you're looking to do some nature trail hiking, this is a good place to go. The park entrance is only about a five minute drive from downtown, at the east end of Bathurst. The trail is actually a series of shorter trails, but if you cover them all, you'll put in about 7 kms of walking. I visited the park, for my first time, at sunset in November...

After an instructional session about the do's and don'ts of operating the sleds and calling to the...

    Campobello Island Things to Do

    The Mulholland Point light is very close to the FRD Memorial bridge on Campobello Island. It is not open to the public but the grounds around it are and there is a nice picnic area close by. From this area you have a nice view of the FDR Memorial Bridge, Lubec, Maine, the Channel Lighthouse, and the islands and waters of Johnson's Bay.

    Campobello Island Local Customs

    Using technology developed from that used by Native Americans on this coast for hundreds of years, herring weirs continue to be used today on Campobello Island to help harvest the schools of Herring that swim along the shoreline as they head for various inlets during their summer spawning season. These weirs were developed by the natives to help...
