Bay of Fundy day 2

I am doing a study of the architecture as a story of the history of settlement by Europeans.
This seems to be a classic - an e.g. of the vernacular.

Lunch Stop - the sunny steps of a United Baptist church for a picnic.

According to my reference book, 'Houses of Nova Scotia' by Allen Penny, this is a 2 story in the Neo-Classical style - characteristics: symmetry, some degree of classical proportion, 'often a doorway with some reference to an ancient building' (in this case the Roman pediment in the triangular awning over the front door).

We continued around the Bay of Fundy, stopping in places to watch the tide going out.
