We woke up this morning planning to drive across the ocean floor to Ministers Island, however, the rainy weather had us go to plan B. We will have to do Ministers Island on another day. Plan B is a quick road trip to St. Stephen.
Before we headed out on the road we did a stop at Lumberjack Cafe to get sandwiches for the road. They were the most scrumptous sandwiches. The bread is baked daily so needless to say they are fresh. I highly recommend trying a club with their cranberry salsa on parmeasan and garlic bread.
It is a short drive to St. Stephen, Canada’s Chocolate Town. The Gagnong chocolate factory is here. We had some samples and bought a few chocolates to go. My favourite where the fruitful au chocolate, the fruitjelly candy covered in dark chocolate, the strawberry and peach were delicious treats. In the store there is a chocolate sculpture of Evangeline to honour the 400th anniversary of French settlement on St. Crook Island. It was created in June 2004 by a chef at the Fairmont Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrews. The impressive sculpture began with a 500 pound block of chocolate and now weighs 225 pounds.
We returned to St. Andrews and did a quick stop at the variety store to top up our supply of Covered Bridge Chips.
