The salty smell in the air. Waves crashing on the shore. Seagulls.
But the Maritimes are also about long drives. With family scattered throughout Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, a 5-hour drive is no biggie for us. Which is why it came as a bit of a surprise to remember this weekend that we could go down the Valley (the Annapolis Valley, that is) to visit family and then just take the Princess of Acadia ferry home to Saint John from Digby.
