The best things about this program are the integrated variety of activities related to the Bay of Fundy and the Canadian Maritimes: Hiking, geology and the record tides, history, culture, and the natural beauty of New Brunswick. My wife and I are glad we chose this program. We had a great time and met a lot of wonderful people.

The lectures and field trips greatly increased my understanding of the history and geology of the area. I learned so much more than I would have if I had gone on my own. The scenery is beautiful. Bring sturdy, waterproof, well broken in hiking boots and rain gear. Some people found walking poles helpful. The rooms in the new section of the Tidal Watch Inn are bigger and more modern. My room on the third floor of the original house had a lovely bay window and view of the Bay of Fundy. The bathroom was small and the wall paper is loose in places but we could listen to the waves during the night. There is no elevator. They have done some updating inside and are repainting the exterior of the original house. It is clean and comfortable but not fancy.

One of the participants wrote this poem: The Residents of the Tidal Watch Inn
July 2013

by Rochelle (chelle) Singer

It was a Sunday in July
When this hearty group did gather
Though fog did delay a few
Their lateness did not matter.

Off they went on the trails
Neither rain nor fog detained them
Though those nasty black fly demons
Attacked arms and legs and cranium.

The Fundy Bay did call them,
High, low and to the caves.
From footprints in the sand
To pebbles on the land
The views won nothing but raves.

There were those members of the group
To the Hearst Lodge they did go
They put the others to their shame
For they decided to wait below.

But, alas, a rather daring group
Salmon River Sisterhood by name,
Decided they could not stand by
They resolved to seek their fame.

So up the Hearst Lodge Trail they went
Six hundred steps in all
They turned around, came back down
And felt like six feet tall.

These residents had many talents
Music was among them
We sang, we laughed, we had some fun
We never made a fuss….
Until they told us about Nova Scotia -
Did they really think they could fool us?

This was my first Road Scholar trip and I did not know what to expect, but I had a great time. This part of New Brunswick is gorgeous, and we saw much of it on our daily walks. Kathy and Rudy were generous and friendly hosts, served wonderful meals and Nancy was a great guide and very thoughtful in managing the varying physical abilities in our group. I normally walk a couple of miles a day and I was fine on the hikes, one of which was almost 8 miles long. I did wish I had brought hiking boots when the weather got wet. Be prepared for some steep ups and downs on the trail. I was glad I had trekking poles to handle the slippery rocks on some of the beaches. We saw eagles, a seal and I almost tripped over a porcupine. This coastline has a bleak and haunted quality, and the shipping history was fascinating. When I asked some of the Road Scholar vets what they thought of this trip, they gave the program a 10 and said they had rarely had such good food at a RS program. In her confirmation e-mail, Kathy wisely recommended that people who were flying to N.B. make sure that they had been booked into St. John, N.B. and not St. John's Newfoundland. I discovered that even though RS had arranged my flights, I had been booked into the wrong province! It's an easy mistake to make, so double-check your reservations.

Not as challenging as I wanted or expected, but I learned a lot from very good guides.
