Crossing into New Brunswick

We had thought that we might spent tonight in Maine, but as we neared the New Brunswick border, that area of Maine seemed really sparsely populated and there didn’t seem to be a campsite or hotel that would have suited us.

So, we just continued into New Brunswick crossing at St. Stephen.

New Brunswick Tourism

We immediately stopped into a New Brunswick Tourism office that was located just over the border to ask about campgrounds in the area.

They were very helpful and called a couple of campgrounds for us.

St. Andrews-by-the-Sea

We decided that we would stop at the Kiwanis Oceanfront Campground that was located right on the ocean in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. Isn’t that a cool name for a town?

They were more expensive than most campgrounds, but that was because of their location. We balked a little at the $30.00 price tag for an unserviced tent lot, but, hey – right by the ocean!

Time Zone Change

We had been expecting a time zone change but weren’t sure where it would happen. I had thought that it might happened while we were still in Maine, but we discovered, at the New Brunswick Tourism office, that it changed as soon as we crossed into New Brunswick.

So, we lost an hour as we entered Canada.

St. Andrews-by-the-Sea

As we drove through downtown St. Andrews, we thought it was lovely and decided, since it was already getting late, that we would check out the downtown area before we leave tomorrow.

So, we set up our tent, spent some time walking by the ocean and settled in for the night.
