Ahhh... A day at the beach

Where is the beach with some of the warmest waters north of Virginia? Would you be surprised if I said New Brunswick, Canada? Parlee Beach Provincial Park is just north of the town of Shédiac. Due to the narrowness of Northumberland Strait and the shallow water, it is quite warm.
Please keep off the dune grass.
Unlike Maine - No rocks underfoot
You can learn more about Parlee Beach here: Parlee Beach Provincial Park

While you're in Shédiac, I suggest you try the fried clams at Chez Leo or rappie pie at the Acadian take-out on Main Street.
The Acadian take-out is easy to spot.      

Shédiac calls itself the "Lobster Capital of the World". Every July, there is a large festival promoting the king of delectable crustaceans.

Summers are short in L'Acadie. As Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
