Fall Foliage Cruise — New Brunswick; Fuller Falls


Looking east toward Fundy National Park

Shortly after spending some time in St. Martins, Diane Howarth took us east. First stop was the Flowerpot Rock Scenic Footpath:

Here we broke for some Tim Horton coffee and muffins while taking in the surrounding beauty:

After this week’s Fun Photo Friday, beginning next Monday, we’ll head continue on the Fundy Trail Parkway into the Fundy National Park. Until then, one more fall foliage photo:

Fall Foliage Cruise — New Brunswick; St. Martins Village


St. Martins shops

It was just before 9:00 a.m. as we approached the village of St. Martins. Out guide Diane Howarth pointed out some of the local mansions on the way into town:

This is one colorful destination, and I don’t just mean the fall foliage. This is a charming village with brightly colored buildings and a picturesque fishing fleet:

There’s even a relocated lighthouse which now serves as a tourist information center:

This relocated lighthouse is the old Quaco Head Light dating from 1883:

As if that weren’t enough, how about an old covered bridge:

Don’t be afraid to ask Diane to take a picture for you. She definitely understands how to compose the shot using the Rule of Thirds:

Two more photos of this wonderful village before continuing on to our next shot (by the way, we’ll be returning here later in the series to photograph that fishing fleet during high tide):
