I arrived yesterday, August 8, at the St Martins Country Inn in the town of St Martins, New Brunswick. I will be here for the next week attending a photography course given by Freeman Patterson and André Gallant. I used yesterday afternoon and most of today exploring the area and taking photos. First stop, yesterday, was the beach just on the eastern edge of the town of St Martins. And by coincidence, I arrived there during the low tide. Given that St Martins is on Fundy Bay, there is a huge difference between low and high tide.
And today I explored the Fundy Trail by car and on foot. I parked at one of the parking lots near the entrance, and from there I hiked on one of the trails to Melvin Beach. I was keeping an eye on the clock so that I could arrive just before the end of the low tide. Yesterday at the St Martins beach I was amazed at how quickly the tide came in and I came a wee bit too close to experiencing the Atlantic Ocean around my ankles.
After the hike, I stopped in at the interpretive centre for something to drink, and while relaxing outside I was entertained by these cuties.
