FLBentRiders' Canadian Vacation
« on: July 16, 2010, 05:39:25 PM »
I'll apologize in advance to my Canadian friends for any damage my family may cause to your country :-)

This trip was born of a story I was telling my kids about when I was a kid (I think about 14) and my Dad asked me if I wanted to go fishing. I said sure. Unbeknownst to me, my Mom had packed all my stuff. We got in the car (in south Florida) and drove to Gander, Newfoundland to go fishing. (the fishing was great) Along the way we overnighted in New Brunswick along the Bay of Fundy. When we checked in, to a motel along the bay, everything looked "normal". The next morning, the water was, well, GONE. 65ft tide change. wow. boats sitting on the mud.

So I am recalling this trip to my kids, and they all say "we want to go there!" So be it. started planning.

We leave the end of next week. Florida to St Martins, NB, then back to Myrtle Beach SC for a week.

Day 2 SC to Cockeysville, MD


Cockeysville, MD --  Corner Stable Restaurant -   NOT the best ribs in Baltimore (at least I'm sure there must be better ones, cuz the ones there are not good)

65 tide change sounds cool

Wow, that's one heck of a tide change - make sure to put the plug back in the drain.

Couple of half-way decent crab shacks on York Road (Cockeysville area) but no BBQ I'd eat again.  You really should try to stop for crabcakes at G&M in Linthicum (near BWI) or, if you're going into the city, Faidley's at Lexington Market.

I'm going to make it to G&M next trip down,  end of August.

Day 4 Albany,NY to New Brunswick stop in NH pickup rental car.

Sounds like one heck of a trip! Did you have a break down on day four?

And what a tide, Please forgive me everyone but Roll Tide Roll! It was a given!  ;D

Holy crap!  The tides there remind me of the chocolate milk intake my son does every day.
