Maritimes 2017

A new car, a desire to avoid airlines, Canada’s 150th Anniversary, free admission to all federal parks and museums – what’s not to like about a road trip to the Maritimes?

Our trip took us to Quebec City (via Inverness to visit some cemeteries where my ancestors from the old country – Scotland – first landed centuries ago), New Brunswick’s Fundy National Park, Halifax and environs, Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island, and finally Old Montreal.

It was the first trip with a new 10-20mm lens – which made for some lovely landscapes.

The National Parks were populated with pairs of red Muskoka chairs.  This pair was particularly well placed after a decent hike through Fundy National Park.

Often the older architecture was the most beautiful.

The most memorable and delicious meal of our trip.  A fresh caught Halibut lunch in North Rustico.
