A 3-day getaway on our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. With my hubbie - @hammerhead - we are discovering new hikes within the Atlantic provinces Co-vid bubble. The options are beautiful and many.

The patchwork view and easy 3.5 return Sussex Bluff trail is well worth the diversion if you're travelling the Trans Canada Highway route #1.
Sussex, N.B. is situated in a lovely wide valley between St. John and Moncton. I've always admired the view of the mosaic design of pastoral fields, clumps of trees and roads winding up and over the ridges. On this trip we had the time and the day was perfect to pull off the main highway into Sussex Corner where we joined a host of other hikers enjoying the Sussex Bluff Trail. Wow. My born-and-raised western Canada spirit was over the top.
We finished the hike about 20 minutes before the park attendant's suggested deadline time to be driving across this gravel-sand bar back to the mainland. Nothing like a little pressure at the end for us to pick up the pace :) Note: that isn't our car on the photo - it is parked behind yours truly, the photographer.
