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.

Pick up at Terminal
St. Patrick’s Memorial Park (Historical Site)
So you’re coming out to explore in Saint John!
First of all, thanks for deciding to come out to play in
Saint John! So what do you need to know
about the weather? I bet you have a dozen questions. What does one wear to walk
on the ocean floor? Is it cold in Saint John?
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
"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.
USA Today has discovered The Bay of Fundy! Posted on June 27, 2013USA Todaystory listed the Bay of Fundy as one of its picks for Top 10 Road Trips in North America. In part the story reads:
" Fundy Coastal Drive, New Brunswick
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.
I took a small group out to St. Martins and the Fundy Trail from Carnival Glory today. The weather was beautiful, sunny and warm. The tide was at its lowest so we explored the Sea Caves and walked way out on the Ocean floor. out 500 feet or so, clear out around the Monkey Face point to the huge cave in the sheltered cove.
The tide had turned while we walked out and was coming in, covering the path out with fresh, cold, Bay of Fundy water as it swelled in around the rocks, regaining the beach!
