Travel writers Keith and Heather Nicol recently spent a couple of weeks exploring Southern New Brunswick in November, 2009 and were amazed by the range of places to explore. From our base in Moncton we spent our days heading off in various directions searching out new places to visit. One favourite area was  nearby Fundy National Park and world famous Cape Hopewell, known for having some of the highest tides in the world. We enjoyed returning at various times of day to see the tide at all its stages. Heading east from Moncton we visited the deserted  beaches at Shediac, Bouchtouche and Kouchibouguac  National Park.

We tried to imagine what the area would be like in the summer with its crowds and were pleased to be able to stroll in the fall sunshine along these beaches in solitude. Moncton is just a couple of hours from Fredericton and Saint John we loved visiting the farmer's markets in all three cities. We found that most attractions were still open in late October and early November and the sunny weather we experienced was a pleasent surprise.
