It feels great to learn that New Brunswick is home to one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The bay is located offshore of Heron Island and will be among the two delegations Canada will be sending to Taiwan for the “Most Beautiful Bays” 2018 annual event. The other delegation is from Quebec, and they will be representing the famous Tadoussac Bay in St. Lawrence, Quebec. The Shore of Heron Island is situated at the edge of Baie des Chaleur and is often referred to as the Bay of Chaleur.
The Most Beautiful Bays is celebrating its 20th anniversary and will feature 45 of the most beautiful bays in the world. The president of Chaleurs Beautiful Bays, Rachel Arseneau-Ferguson, and Michel Bujold, who will take over the presidency from Rachel on September 29, 2018, will represent New Brunswick in this year’s annual meeting. Coincidentally, the day he will be sworn in is his birthday when he will be turning 69. Bujold has worked with the global organization for six years and will serve as president for the coming three years.
This is not the first time the Bay of Chaleur is being recognized as one of the most beautiful bays in the world, having participated in the annual celebrations more than five times before. Neither is it the last time, given that the organization’s president in waiting is familiar with the natural beautiful scenery in New Brunswick and will probably do a good job to promote the bay. The delegation from New Brunswick is responsible for letting the whole world know the advantages of visiting the Bay of Chaleur in a move that’s intended to boost tourism in New Brunswick and Canada, in general. New Brunswick is also home to beautiful rivers, such as the splendid Miramichi River, wild Atlantic salmon, which is the biggest species of its kind, National Historic Sites, and considerable, beautiful islands, such as the gorgeous Beaubears Island.
