Canadian Maritimes - Day 3
7 August 2016
After another early rise to photograph the sunrise on the Annapolis Basin, we boarded the ferry to New Brunswick. The 2.5 hour ride across the Bay of Fundy aboard the massive ferry was an attraction in itself. The large vessel carries passengers, cars and tractor trailers plus has multiple restaurants, a movie lounge, truckers' lounge, shops and more aboard. Upon arrival in Saint John, we spent the rest of the day and evening exploring the city followed by eating outside (yup, more seafood) in what can certainly be called patio weather.
