Bay of Fundy, need I say more? Fabulous pebble shore line as far as the eye can see. A postcard from every angle. Clean out house for public use.

You can climb the STEEP stairs to the top of this lighthouse if you dare. Nice view of the Bay. Campground next to it.

Spencer's Island and Advocate Harbour have a pull which is inexplicable and deep. They draw artists and travellers from all over the globe and impart a sense of calm, serenity and belonging. On top of that, imagine warm winds through poplars, sun glinting on ocean waves, fishing boats and wide expanses of ancient, untouched beach, hulking red cliffs. High end restaurants - yes, it's true and they are exceptional. A film festival, world renowned trail systems in an enormous ocean-side provincial park, kayaking, ghost ships, jurassic history, and a location which was named solely for its breathtaking sunsets: Cape d'Or - Cape of gold. Stop and talk with one of the extraordinary people make this place their home, or camp overnight on the beach campground or beautiful red cottage impossibly close to the incoming tide, and try to tell yourself that you're ready to leave. It won't be easy.
