NEW BRUNSWICK

New Brunswick is the largest of Canada’s three Maritime provinces. It is located under Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula and beside the State of Maine. New Brunswick was one of the first provinces, along with Ontario, Québec and Nova Scotia, to join together to form the Dominion of Canada in 1867.  New Brunswick is Canada's only officially bilingual province with approximately 35 per cent of the population French-speaking.

Lupins and boathouse
 
New Brunswick has spectacular autumn foliage, wildflowers in the spring and pure, white snow in the winter. In this small province by Canada's eastern seas you'll find wide silver rivers where bright salmon leap, canoes gliding on soft emerald streams, rearing sentinel headlands standing firm against Atlantic tides, and silken sand beaches where water runs shallow and warm. The province is marked by its rolling hills and spectacular valleys, as well as its historic and modern architecture located in many of its cities, towns and villages. 

King's Landing Village Mill

Dropped like an emerald beside the sapphire blue of the St. John River, is Kings Landing. Its bustling country lanes lead you into the homes and lives of early New Brunswick settlers. Every corner of KIngs Landing is active, from the kitchen fires to the blacksmith's forge. You can see the largest water-wheel driven sawmill in Canada.

  2. Ciekawe pocztówki. Nietypowa, jak dla nas, zabudowa. Pierwsza kartka bardzo ładna.

  3. Podoba mi się bardziej pierwsza pocztówka, taki sielski widoczek :) W sumie z Kanady można otrzymać sporo ciekawych kartek, ale jeszcze nie widziałam takiej zabudowy jak na drugiej pocztówce.

    1. Zabudowa na drugiej pocztówce pochodzi z XIX w., więc nie jest to widok codzienny dla współczesnej Kanady.
