A River Flows by St. Croix river, new brunswick

From its origins near lovely Spednic Lake, to its wide estuary in Passamaquoddy Bay, this is the historic St. Croix River, which forms the international border between New Brunswick and Maine.

Spednic Lake, near the headwaters of the St. Croix

Downstream at St. Stephen, its mudflats are exposed at low tide
It almost overflows at spring tides

Then there are rapids...

And purple-hued rocks at sunset
Which are completely hidden at high tide
Sunset adds colour
And sets the sky ablaze
with the brightest colours of an artist's palette.
and star-filled skies
Lupins in spring
And glorious colours in autumn
Rocky beaches downriver at Ganong Nature Park
And historic St. Croix island
Evening mist at Chamcook
Peaceful sailboats on a misty day at St. Andrews
It's calm and serene
Reflecting the town in rippling water
With glorious colour at day's end

It attracts whales as it reaches Passamaquoddy Bay

Under the gaze of Head Harbour Light on Campobello Island

And finally empties into the sea at the mighty Bay of Fundy opposite Grand Manan Island
