When most folks in my corner of the world consider a winter get away they usually picture someplace warm, perhaps a tropical drink in hand and toes in the sand. Or … hardier travellers might head for the ski hills. I tend toward city visits.
But in this particular trip, I’d have to say, I didn’t time it very well.
I haven’t been to Saint John, New Brunswick for years, so I was looking forward to a little exploring.
A VERY little exploring, it turned out.
The combination of bitter cold temperatures and brisk windchills (ie -30C) with ice covered sidewalks conspired against me.
I managed a quick jaunt along Germaine Street and wasn’t disappointed with the architecture.
Luckily, the city makes a visit a little easier in winter with pedways and tunnels connecting some of the must see spots…
… Such as the very charming City Market.
That said, I feel a return visit during one of the warmer months is warranted – for sure.
For now, I’m in full agreement with Norm Frampton – enough with winter!
