Saint John from the air


One of the first things you notice when you fly to Saint John is the water. Not only is the Bay of Fundy a constant presence, its strong tides alternately hiding and revealing the shoreline, but local waters also include the St. John and Kennebecasis rivers, meeting at Boar’s Head just upstream from the harbour, and a myriad of small lakes and rivers, wetlands and brooks scattered in every direction. The strong impression of green and blue, forest and water, makes it hard for a moment to spot the city itself. With so much water surrounding us, it’s no wonder the land is so green. There is so much potential for life here; life is full of potential.

  1. You’re so right, barefootheart — even now, looking at this photo, I feel a tug on my heart. One of the reasons that I started this blog was to show some of the beautiful (and sometimes not-so-beautiful) faces of the city.
