Brrrrr. I can feel that North Atlantic wind crossing over all that ice. It's a little hard to tell from the photos but I assume the boats are dry-docked fro the winter? Ice can be a very destructive force when it thaws.

A lot of boats are dry-docked for the winter, but I did see others that were not. The Bay looks more like a field. That's an island out there!

That's a great destination, Rob, and I'm so glad you got to experience it and share it with us! Kind people and Dixie Lee chicken -- seems New Brunswick is a-calling! I've traveled extensively thoughout North America but have never made it to the Maritime provinces. Need to rectify that sometime soon.

Thank you, Vivie, you're very kind and I will be there someday. Not sure when, yet, but it is definitely a "must seen" for me. Nothing like a local expert to bring a place to life, so I'll let you know when that happens.

The Acadian Village really is a special place and so is the whole area. I'll definitely return and take Vivie up on her Dixie Lee dinner offer! For those of you that missed my clip about Dixie Lee, here's the famous chicken! Sides are shown in the comment section. Besides the sights , the area also has a great restaurant, Chez Raymond, with an amazing Poutine ! https://www.travelgumbo.com/cli...g-20150712-231632800

Thanks for posting this interesting story, Rob. I'd love to go. Now I need to look it up on a map and start planning. As you said, Acadians spread their history all the way down to Louisiana. Cajuns make New Orleans and Louisiana what it is today.

Thank you History Digger! I'm sure that you will enjoy your visit when you go. I'd really recommend staying a night at that hotel in the village if you can. I didn't but it seems like it would be a neat experience.

This is a great piece. The last time I visited New Brunswick was 41 years ago. I am not sure if we stopped here or at other historical sights, but we did enjoy our time there.
