Deer Island is located on the southern shore of New-Brunswick. It is approximately one hour or so from Saint-John. I had been to Deer Island before however during the previous trip I was to young to appreciate its uniqueness and beauty. The total population is estimated at 1000 people. Most who reside on the Island are in the fishing buisness. The island itself is a mere 9 miles long and 3 miles wide. Even it is a small island, it is one that offers a lot for those who visit.

I thought this was somewhat funny and figured my car was similar to someone who lived on the Island. It did not take me long to figure out that people from Deer Island are just friendly people who wave to everybody. The thing that confirmed my thoughts was when I received a wave from 90 year old (or so) woman that could barely see over the steering wheel!!
So to sum it up, the people on Deer Island are very friendly. If you are ever there, don't be shy...stick out your hand and wave!
