EAST BOUND AND OUT: SCENERY

Hello All!
Well, I am back from my whirl wind 6 day (total back and home) drive to New Brunswick!
I saw a lot of trees, a lot of water, and took plenty of interesting reference shots.
Before you ask, I did NOT see the worlds largest covered bridge, the worlds largest lobster, or the worlds largest axe. (sigh)
I can't even begin to discus my disappointment from not seeing the Potato Museum. ;-)
But, the good news is, next time I am out east, there are lots of things to do!!
Here are some of the highlights from my trip. 
This is mostly all scenery, and there was a lot of it!! 
Enjoy!
Bonjour Quebec. This is midway through the 15 hour drive to New Brunswick. Sadly, je ne parle pas francais.
Except: Celine Dion, Creme Brulee,  Roch Voisine, and um...... french fries??
Teal Barn.....need I say more??
Spooky St John. Yes, it is foggy for my entire visit!
"St John, city of fog."
Or maybe "St. Johns: A very pretty and interesting little city!"

or how about "St John: everything you need to see is only 3 feet in front of you."

Or perhaps "St John, nothing a little photoshop won't fix."

Poor tourists. (read - suckers) They must be disappointed by all the rainy weather!
Idiot. Er, I mean, a zip-lining tourist! 
Hey.....is that more fog??? Not depressing in the least! ;-) 

Low tide. this was kinda cool to see for us Land-lubbers.
A covered bride in Saint Martin. NOT the longest one, but size isn't everything.
  
A cool (and slightly dodgy) bridge in Hampton, NB.

Pretty little water ways abound!!!

Buddy can you spare a tree? SERIOUSLY...I haven't seen so much wood since.......insert joke here...... 
I did not go to this church in Hampton, but I did like the looks of it!
Well?

What do you think so far?

  2. Great photos! I can't wait to see the works that they inspire! St. John's is pretty, I like that building that looks like it has a mini brick building on the side.
