Saint John

I stayed one day extra after the conference, rented a car, and drove to Saint John, New Brunswick (not to be confused by St. John's, Newfoundland). Had a great time following some historic walking tours, taking pics of old houses, and browsing through the farmer's market. I was too scared to try dulse (dried seaweed), supposedly popular in the Maritimes.

For lunch, I had a three-berry yogurt smoothie and a pecan tart, and people-watched at the market. Dessert in lieu of lunch is starting to become a pattern with me. I especially like my photo of the tart.
For dinner, I was really hoping to turn my food luck around, so I opted for Billy's Seafood Company - a place which is both a fish market and a restaurant. Big mistake. Bacon-wrapped scallops tasted like rubber dipped in ketchup and the grilled halibut was extremely dry, almost like they cooked it from frozen. The only good part was the wine - a Lindeman's Pinot Grigio.
