Greetings from New Brunswick!

Hey There!

We have finally made it to NB! Sorry for not posting along the way, but we were extremely busy most days and then, while in Tadoussac, when I had time to post, we had no internet connection (except down at the Boheme Cafe, where we checked email a couple of times).

We spent our first couple of days at Mont Sainte Anne, about a 5 hour drive from home, staying at Chateau Mont Sainte Anne. We went to Les Sept Chutes (the 7 waterfalls) and Canyon Sainte Anne (check out the pics below), before driving another couple of hours to Tadoussac in Quebec too.

We did ALOT of hiking around the water at Tadoussac, watching for whales, but we didn't see any from the shore. On Tuesday morning, we went for a whale watching cruise and saw quite a few! Unfortunately, due to timing and fog for the first part of the cruise, I didn't get the best pictures of them!

On Wed we headed to New Brunswick via Ferry from Sainte Simeon. We landed in Edmundston, NB for the night at a Comfort Inn, where we relaxed and did laundry...Unforunately the girls were using my laptop all night, so no posting for me until today!

We left this morning and stopped in Grand Falls and yep, saw another big waterfall! We then drove towards Moncton, and stopped at Potato World for lunch and to visit their museum! We then drove a couple of hours and got to Moncton. We are currently at a Holiday Inn Express in a nice big suite for a couple of nights and after supper and some shopping, I finally have time to edit a few photos and post to my blog finally!

Here are some photos from our trip to Canyon Sainte Anne:
-a photo of the whole waterfall-it had a nice hiking trail with lots of lookouts along the way as well as some bridges to go across!

-Kevin and Brooke on the bridge that is 60metres above the water (Yep, I went across it too) Yikes-scary!

-Keturah on a lower bridge, but it is barely above the water!

-All three of the family, standing on the first bridge
