Martin's a little seaside village that we've neverbeen to before yeah it's on the Bay of Fundy yeah this is cute little townthere's a number of different things you can do here I believe there's cavesthere's a there's a beach you can go for a walk Fundy Trail Parkway on the trail and we mighteven partake in some of the delicious looks cool there's chowderwe know this lobster rolls yeah I mean it's gonna be great we're just cominghere to have a nice chill day that's basically just a day trip with myparents with some family friends and yeah we're gonna have a great timeso let's see what we get up to you so we're driving through the town out andwe're visiting I had a bit of a special time because it'swe all town we always oh thanks all we I guess basically the premise is that foranyone who's moved away it's a chance to come back reconnect with the small townhere from uh-huh and it seems like almost I'd say like over half of thehomes here are having garage sales this weekend oh yeah so I mean you havepeople out and about like grabbing different things like clothes old booksfurniture antiques I mean we might even stop by a place if we have time but it'sfascinating it it feels like you know first Saturday morning at 10:00 in themorning it's a very lively and vibrant community so far yeah and some beautifulhomes as well so the first little pit stop that I had was actually in ageneral store basically like a small grocery stop and inside of this placeyou had all kinds of food you had souvenirs some local products but whatwas really fascinating is that the store was built in 1889 and according to ourfriend Joan it's only had three owners over the years and from the outside Ithought it was a church yeah like the building looks like a church yeah thearchitecture is really neat and yeah such a cool store so much characterinside well guys we have arrived at our veryfirst stop of the day slippery boar at the sea caves here in Saint Martins andwe got very lucky because we did not check the times for high tide low tidebut we just happened to get here during low tide which means we can walk intothe caves we can walk on what's normally covered by water and so much cooler herelike in Fredericton today we're expecting temperatures close to 40degrees with the humidity and here it must be like low to mid-20s there's justlike a natural cool breeze blowing through like air conditioning nature'sair conditioning and so yeah we're just gonna have a little look around herethis is probably my main attraction in this town it's a place that someone hadrecommended to me on Twitter as well so thank you there comes Sam Oh a pit stop we've gotthe group waiting for us yes so we should get going okay all rightdefinitely impressive and apparently I mean obviously when the water comes inyou can come and visit these caves and the kayak yeah different experience Ilike the hopewell rocks yeah exactly time for a much-needed update we havejust entered into fundy trail I drove around for a while a beautiful Drive ohmy gosh it's I think it's almost even more beautiful than the fundy NationalPark oh there was no traffic I mean it's totally serpentine roads up and downyou're going through forests and then every once in a while you'd peacoatalong the coast yeah beautiful and I have to say the surprising thing is thatwe're the only ones here it's the middle of summer a beautiful sunny day yeah Ithink more people would be like having a picnic or swimming or road-tripping butit's just us and we pulled into Long Beach it's a super long it's just thetide has started coming in now so like half of it is underwaterbut it's still big even like with it being half covered so yeah reallyimpressive everyone's going down there to have a little walk and then

believe they're called yeah which are like swimming holesuh-huh and yeah it's a really nice trail because we have lots of shade lots ofcoverage just be careful here Sam it's like super wet and muddy so one thing tomention this year we're making more of an effort to really explore our homecountries yeah specifically we've been focusing on New Brunswick because let mesay I've been coming to Fredericton ever since I met you once a year sometimestwice a year but like we've never done this much sightseeing we've never reallydone any same thing we've done yeah covered Fredericton pretty well yeah acouple day trips that's it you know what for me I've been coming to this provincesince I was like this Paul wee wee boy every summer to visit my grandparents wedid a little bit of travel but most of this province has been totally unchartedfor me as well so they get an opportunity to go and see a fewdifferent areas and Fundy yeah so go to st.

Andrews I mean there's even moreplaces to visit this problem has a lot to offer yeah yeah and like I mean justin the last two weeks we did a big trip with my parents and Sam's dad where wedid what we started in Fredericton we did sing Andrews keep and rage fundingNational Park the hopewell rocks yeah now we're doing this fun littleadventure to st.

Martin's and like the sirrounding area so yeah there's lots to see here and the beauty of this provinceis that there's hardly any worse it's more a lot there's a lot more there's alot more nature than people yeah get out of the cities and into the into theparks yeah add to the forest you really feel like you're exploring you're notyeah other places in Canada or around the world for that matter when you gofor a hike in a famous place just you know there's so many people here youhave so much breathing room so much legroom and you really feel like you'reout in the woods I feel like here in New Brunswick like locals know about thesecool spots but people in neighboring provinces haven't discovered them yetguys New Brunswick check it out all right guys our last stop was fullerFalls yep HUD nice little peek at them snap some photos yeah beautiful littleFalls I had such a cool I'm such a cool descent to get down there yeah it was avery rustic trail yeah so now while we Hawk back in the car and drove to st.

Martin's maybe just like a 15-minute drive yeah and the great debate now ischowder or ice cream gonna be here this is where we get it yeah you gotta walkinside and order it yeah chowder ahh we are now taking you guys on a littletour of st.

Martin's covered bridges there are two of them two guys yeahthese are these are real heritage bridges because I mean obviously they'renot being built anymore and now that there are more floods per year some ofthem have been destroyed so there's less and less in the province I didn't knowthat and further to have to live here it's pretty special also fun fact thesewere known as kissing bridges because couples could sneak a little packwithout anyone seeing them are you riding like a little horse and buggy alittle carriage Oh Joan's house so the place we were originally planningto go to for ice cream and chowder is so popular and there was such a long linethat we were like no way driving yeah we kept moving on I don't actually knowwhat this place is called one sign says st.

Martin's ice cream parloryeah it just says fresh lobster rolls yes stop forcing so so it sounds likethey do a bit of everything Sam and I have ordered one chowder a medium shoutyeah share and we're gonna get ice cream ice cream afterwards I get it nowbecause it'll melt by the time we're done the cheeseyeah now we're just waiting in the only shade there is vehicle ice cream for Samcooling down with someone campfire smores and peanut butter chocolate fudgeyou doin mine Wow ultimate and decadent chocolate andpeanut butter Sam's favorite combo is the all-time winning combo and now Red Rock can you guys see how itgets its name apparently this is a bit of a secret beach because it's notreally super easy to access like it's not off a main road or anything you kindof have to detour down these little side streets and then go on a bit of a trekbut yeah when you get here you kind of have this place all to yourselfI mean it's our group and then one guy who just came down to the beach butaside from that there's no one else and we just really lucked out as well beingable to visit during low tide again low tide again so we can actually walk onwhat would normally be underwater well guys we made it back by the look onour faces what is it we're tired extremely yes we need to thank ourfamily friends Joan and Garry they planned everything for inviting us orbiting us organising all the activities providing an incredible meal they'relike three delicious salads oh my gosh of other things yeah yeah what a day andsome really nice Cuban friends joined us as welleight of us all together you have us we had a little gang and honestly beforethis trip like I didn't really know anything about st.

Martin's I had heardthe name hmm but like I didn't know what to go back and it was such a nice littleplace to visit and so much access to nature essentially I heard my parentsreferring to it as the hidden jewel of New Brunswick oh well there you go guysyou find it up here I think for me the the take-home message from this trip isthat there's adventure nearby you know I've been to New Brunswick I don't evenknow how many times worried yeah almost every year since I was a kid and I meanI've been to a few places but most of the time is just like family gatheringsand hanging out at home and this province has so much to offerI'm just discovering this you know many decades later mm-hmmand because we're here in the summer and we still have a bit of time left in theprovince we're gonna try and do a few more trips and show you guys around hereso stay tuned for that we'll see what's next a team for that I hope you guysenjoyed this video if you did give it a thumbs up comment below and we'll seeyou with some more food and travel videos from New Brunswick soon tata you.
