The Village of St. Martins,
New Brunswick, Canada....
The heart of the Bay of Fundy

St. Martins is a Canadian village in Saint John County, New Brunswick and was originally known as Quaco meaning haunt of the hooded seal. The picturesque community is just east of Saint John and is situated on the Bay of Fundy. Through the 19th century, St. Martins was an important shipbuilding centre. Tourism is now the major industry.

The highest tides in the world govern everyday activity in the Village of St. Martins, where the fishing fleet must depart and return on the high tide. The low tide, shown below, leaves boats sitting in the mud.

Two twin covered bridges can be found in St Martins. Just around the corner from the wharf, one bridge goes up to Orange Hill and down the scenic back roads. The drive from the other bridge goes to a beautiful beach and the famous caves of St. Martins, then on to the entrance of the Fundy Trail. This is the way that the two RV Gypsies went - keep scrolling down for photos.

After a light lunch of delicious seafood chowder and clams at the beach restaurant; the two RV Gypsies enjoyed a walk along the beach where time and tides have carved echoing caves in the sandstone cliffs.

The two RV Gypsies did not realize that it was necessary to cross a very colorful stream in order to get to the cave. Many people did remove their shoes and socks to do so, but Lee did not want to, so Karen did not either, but later regretted that decision.

It was a windy day and Karen had to remove her hat in order to keep it from blowing away in the wind.

The two RV Gypsies took a minute to look back towards the restaurant. Walking on this beach at low tide was a wonderful experience. However walking through the rocks and streams of water was not always easy.
