New Brunswick-Canada

New Brunswick is a maritime province with three coastlines - on Chaleur Bay, the Northumberland Strait and the Bay of Fundy. Routes along these coasts can provide an interesting introduction to the area, opening up a vista of dramatic rocks, such as Hopewell Cape, and sea dotted with islands that boast astonishing glimpses of unusual fauna, birds and wildlife. Millions of flowers dot the land as far as the eye can see, carpeting the province in colour.New Brunswick is the most heavily forested of all Canada's provinces (indeed, arguably, the most forested in North America) and this, therefore, stretches its nautical associations further. Criss-crossed as it is with lakes, rivers and streams, escapes into the New Brunswick's wilderness are likely to be based around activities such as canoeing, kayaking or swimming.Consequently, the produce from New Brunswick's waters is exceptional. Shediac is reputed to be the lobster capital of the world, such is the quantity and quality of the town's cooked crustacean. In addition, the salmon is succulent, the scallops are plump and juicy and year-round blue mussels are moistly flavoursome.From staring out at the 50-foot tides of the Bay of Fundy to staring out at the vast Washademoak Lake, there is much in New Brunswick to whet the appetite
