After 3 whirlwind tours of the Maritimes to choose our settling place, Sackville beckoned. The size of the town, everything being within walking distance, the pubs, the arts, and the friendliness of the people made it an easy choice. The outdoor activities be it winter, summer, fall or spring, the ocean and the Bay of Fundy are so close by. The tipping point was walking downtown on one of our visits. It was a beautiful winter night, big fluffy snowflakes were falling and a couple stopped us on the street and the lady said to us, "is it not just picture postcard perfect dear?". And it really was !
