Saint John was the first incorporated city (May 1785) and is the largest city in the province of New Brunswick. It is situated on the east coast of mainland Canada on the Bay of Fundy - Atlantic Ocean...hence it gets cold here (for an aussie that is) with lots of dampness. The city itself is very much alive and as the cruise ships stop off here it is well marketed for the tourists. I LoVe walking through the markets where hubby and I picked up a bucket of lobster for lunch for only $9.95 and a bag of dulce. He of course (being born in Saint John) loves dulce. Now for anyone who doesn't know what dulce is... it's seaweed...and it's just AwFuL! YuK! Now I'll probably come in for some
Anyway... the population of Saint John in 2006 was 68000 with another 62000 in the metro area. It is not a large city but a quaint one. Here are just a few pic's.....I hope you enjoy your stay with me.
