Hi Dave,

Thanks for the terrific tour and pictures.

Question – what is the reason for receiving the roses or flag pins (?) for men when we disembarked from the Gradeur of the Seas in Saint John. Couldn't remember the story and am putting together an album about the cruise.

Until later

3 Ships in October in Saint John Harbour

Saint John, being located right on the Bay of Fundy, experiences moderate weather year round. As the water in the Bay stays cold, between 31 degrees F and 34 degrees F, it has a moderating effect on the weather. In summer months, the cold water of the Bay of Fundy cools the warm summer winds, keeping the city 5-10 degrees cooler than just a few miles inland.

Saint John City Market Center AisleSaint John City Market 

"Saint John Public Space Built in 1876, the Saint John City Market is the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada. The Market forms the historic centerpiece of a revitalized city centre as it lies adjacent to the main street of the urban core area and abuts the City’s most prominent public square, “King’s Square”. The unique architectural design of the building reveals an exterior façade reflective of the Victorian era in which it was built, while the interior space of the Market resembles the hull of a ship.

Distance: 220 miles from St. Andrews to Moncton

New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy is home to the world's most extreme tides, and there's no better way to see them than on a scenic drive along the province's coastline. Begin in St. Andrews, a lovely seaside resort town where art galleries, shops, and a luxuriant public garden make up the downtown area and kayak and whale-watching tours line the cove.
