Fundy Trail

The Fundy Trail, a few kilometres east of St. Martins, is one of my favourite places. When the sun poked out on Sunday, we drove down to the tiny fishing village, followed a few bends in the road, and parked the car for a long hike beside the Fundy coastline. Hiking on this trail, you get a real sense of place. You remember where you are, smell it, see it, feel it. Here are a few photos I snapped, trying to use the new techniques I learned from Noel on Saturday.

On a side note, apparently plans to extend the Fundy Parkway, a winding, scenic road that hugs the coastline beside the trail, have been stalled this year. A staff member told us no new funding was approved for this year. Instead, the road abruptly ends where construction ended in June 2010, with an orange barrier blocking traffic from the unfinished road. Eventually, the road will follow the coast all the way to Fundy National Park. This is the last undeveloped stretch of land along the eastern seaboard.
