A Visit from our Ontario Friend

On 18 August, our friend Bunty living in St. Albert, Ontario, came to visit with us. It was Bunty's first visit to Northern New Brunswick.

Bunty's first evening with us was a relaxing one so she could rest from your long drive. It was a warm summer evening so we sat out on the back deck enjoying the view of the Bay of Chaleur while chatting and watching the Hummingbirds at our feeder. Paul also gave Bunty a short driving tour of downtown Bathurst and area.

The next day Bunty came to a girls luncheon at the Atlantic Host with me and met a couple of the members of our New Comers Group. It was a pleasant afternoon. In the evening we decided to take a walk on Beresford Beach.

People were having bonfires on the beach. It always amazes me the size of the bonfires on our beach. I am use to a small fire that you can sit by and roast a marshmallow, but not here!

We saw this collection of ornaments near the doorstep of a cottage. My favourite is always the seagull wearing the yellow short longrubbers.

During our walk on the beach, Paul was lucky to find a blue mermaid tear (seaglass).
We also got to experience an awesome sunset over the lagoon at Beresford Boardwalk.

  1. Thanks very much Marilyn and Paul. It was a wonderful fully-packed week of life on Beresford Beach and surrounding area. It was so good to be back in the Maritimes. You are terrific hosts.
