Greetings from my week-long writing retreat in beautiful St. Martins by the Bay of Fundy. I took a much-needed break from the daily grind to recharge creatively. I brought plenty of books and a few writing projects. It’s nice to have such a long stretch of time to think, read, and write. I have done a little exploring, too (something I intend to do more of — there’s so much beauty in New Brunswick). Yesterday I visited the famous sea caves at low tide. There were still vestiges of high tide, as it was very cold and some retreating waves froze in layers (see pictures below). Some sea foam also froze as it churned the red sand. It was a bit tricky to access the caves because of streams . . . tricky because I didn’t want to get wet (it was cold, remember). But I managed. There were impressive stalactites of ice on the ceiling.
