The eager students then headed by bus off for a Cable Ferry ride across the tranquil waters of the St John River, a very delightful trip that indeed offered a picturesque view of Mother Nature at its best. After the Cable Ferry docked, the students observed the artistic works of Anthony Flower at the Anthony Flower House, practiced singing of our national anthem and participated in numerous outdoor activities. During the return trip back to Queens County Court House, the atmosphere revealed how friendships blossomed and joyful memories were imprinted through the expressions of laughter.
At around 4:00, everyone walked to the Gagetown Community School for pizza and a tour of the school’s Outdoor Nature Classroom. Despite the long day, it was time to board the bus for a much anticipated overnight stay at CFB Gagetown.
Upon arrival to CFB Gagetown, they were gracious greeted and given a tour of the Military Engineers Museum. The young historians were immensely intrigued with the massive collection of engineer and general military artifacts. Such artifacts depict the achievements of the Canadian Military Engineers in the development of Canada during times of battle.
To end the evening, the participants then enjoyed a snack as they mingled in conversation with the Sea Cadets at Camp Argonaut. After sustaining much activity throughout the day, the exhausted participants bunkered down in the barracks for a well-deserved good night’s sleep!
