Fredericton sits on the St John River and has a beautiful walking and biking path. Some beautiful old homes and buildings overlooking the river on Waterloo Parkway. At one time New Brunswick was part of Nova Scotia.
In 1783, United Empire Loyalists settled in Saint Anne's Point now known as the City of Fredericton.They petitioned the governor of Halifax to make the area north of Fundy Bay a separate province. It was named in honor of King George III second son.
Barracks Square has 4 remaining buildings from the Garrison where British troops were stationed from 1784 to 1869. Today they house a museum, artisans at work and shops.

Our drive back to Saint John took us on Hwy 102 along the St John River.
Rain is expected for the next two days, so we will be Ihome bound.
On Friday we leave for two weeks in Halifax NS.
We have found the Canadians to be very friendly and eager to help with information. Just wish gas were cheaper.
