Postcard Friendship Friday



I received the postcard below from Peg Vasseur in New Brunswick, Canada. We have been exchanging postcards for a while. I also wanted you to see the pretty 96 cents stamp from Canada.

An interesting fact about New Brunswick:

The world's longest covered bridge was completed in Hartland in 1899. It's 390 metres ( 1,282 feet ) long and spans the Saint John River. There are 62 covered bridges in the province. Many of them are in the Sussex area of Kings County- the Covered Bridge Capital of Atlantic Canada. Be sure to make a wish as you drive through. (Oh, and ask one of the locals to tell you why covered bridges are called Kissing Bridges) !

You can see the bridge on the postcard center left.





Marie this is my offering for Postcard Friendship Friday. Thanks so much for hosting.

I wonder how many of the 62 covered bridges are on postcards.

Hello maryteach,
I've visited most of New Brunswick but not Hartland yet. My focus has been on the Acadian northwestern shore where my ancestors lived (as well as Shediac and Moncton).

That's an area I have always wanted to visit. Why is it that we go to Europe instead?
