Covered Bridge in New Brunswick near Shédiac

The picture above is the covered bridge over the Shédiac River near Shédiac. I actually drove around looking for that bridge last year but never was able to locate it. I found it this year by pure luck when I happen to turn my head and saw the tip of it from the road. This one is closed to circulation but you can walk across. I had to get into the river to take a picture. It was built in 1935 and is 84 feet long.

Covered bridge over the Cocagne river in New Brunswick

This one is over the Cocagne river in Poirier. It was built in 1942 and measures 136 feet.

Covered bridge on Victoria road over the Cocagne river

This one is also over the Cocagne river on Victoria Road near New Scotland. It was built in 1913 and measures 83 feet. We drove around in circles for a while before finding it and I had to stop and ask a local who was working on his tractor for directions. By the time we got to it, the sky was picture perfect!

The skies are clear again today and I’m researching other covered bridges to visit. Maybe I’ll put a calendar together if I can find 12 of them while we’re here.
