General Pictures from St. Andrews, Canada October 22, 2015 Joshua While I’m a tad late in getting this post out, here are some pictures from my recent trip to Canada. Two hundred year old cannons put in place for the War of 1812. The land you see in the far distance is Maine, USA. Looking across the bay towards St. Andrews, Canada. Saint Croix Island – location of the frirst French colony established by Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Mons in June 1604. Maine, USA, is in the far distance. Celtic cross at St. Andrews as a tribute to the souls buried on Hospital Island. A quarantine station was place on that island and housed hundreds of Irish immigrants fleeing the famine in Ireland from 1832 to 1862.
