CAMPGROUND: Big Axe Brewery, a Harvest Host location. Drop-dead gorgeous on the St. John River, surrounded by autumn colors. Owner/brewer came out to greet us and help us get parked. It is a huge parking area right on the area – even with a firepit. There is also a dock on the river for boaters to access the brewery. 5 stars out of 5
LOCATION: Nagawic, New Brunswick
WEATHER: Mostly foggy and drizzle all day. High 68
DISTANCE DRIVEN: 8 hours
We tried for a 7:30 AM departure, but were satisfied with an 8:00 take-off. We gave Tony and Jenny hugs good-bye, and the 2 trailers – TaJ and Joy sadly said good-bye, too.
We made it about 2 miles before both couples stopped at the French bakery in town for croissants. Here we are in the parking lot – a final good-bye
The first two hours of the trip were through winding, secondary roads in Cape Breton and eastern Nova Scotia mainland. We had driven through here a month ago, and wow – have the colors changed! Just gorgeous!!!
After Cape Breton, the fog and drizzle came in, and the ride was mostly fairly gloomly. The tree colors were muted due to the fog.
We made it to Big Axe Brewery about 4:30 – a long day’s driving. This is the view from our trailer’s front door.
Here is the sign for boaters to find the brewery from along the river
The colors are just fantastic. The brewery is surrounded by beautiful trees.
We sat out on the deck to enjoy our beers (and free popcorn). We used up all Loonies and Toonies, as we will cross over to USA early tomorrow morning. We could see Joy and the truck parked down below.
DINNER: I hope to not go grocery shopping as we travel back to Texas, so it will be a lot of leftovers and leftover do-overs. Tonight was a salad and a chicken/artichoke casserole.
