2018 ROAD TRIP TO MAINE & CANADA
Day 9: Thursday, July 19th
Our family went on an unforgettable journey with our Airstream from our home state of Rhode Island to New Brunswick, Canada. This post is a small portion of our family vacation, and it is about our dinner out in Alma, New Brunswick and our campfire at our campground.
Dinner in Alma + Camp Fire
After our eventful day at Herring Cove Beach, we decided to do dinner in town (Alma, NB)! We went to Tipsy Tails = best seafood stew! It was pricey, but mostly tasty. We enjoyed the corn, the stew, and the lobster mac and cheese. The lobster poutine, however, was very bland and not worth it.
Communal Fire Pit
Even though Headquarters Campground at Fundy National Park does not have individual fire pits at each camp site, they do have communal ones.
This was Kai’s very first campfire! Unfortunately, I did not snap any photos that evening to capture the moment.
After dinner in alma, we joined an older couple who had started a campfire. They were on a 3-week road trip to a wedding in Price Edward Island. They had purchased an older camper, and were really enjoying themselves. The husband brought his ukulele and was playing and singing around the campfire.
I love meeting, chatting with people, and hearing stories when traveling!
We brought marshmallows to share, along with our retractable campfire sticks. The telescoping sticks have definitely come in handy, but I do have to warn that the ends are very sharp. When we first purchased our camper at CampingWorld, our salesperson included those in our “gift bag”.
After about 20 minutes, Kai saw some kids riding bikes and chased them down. So much for our time around the fire 🙂
What a wonderful end to a great day! It’s safe to say we all slept like babies that night.
