Tashia's Visit

Tashia brought her catch glove so she and Dad could play catch.
Some things never change...

We went over to the cottage on Beresford Beach
to enjoy a family campfire.

Downshore Hunting Seaglass with Tashia

One of our favourite places to be
Tashia and Paul discussing a seaglass find
Tashia was walking the high tide line looking for treasures
Paul may have found something!
My two favourite beachcombers
Someone had a bonfire set up on the high tide line
It's a weekend thing to do here in this area
Dad and his little girl on the beach
They are still looking for treasures
Tashia has a find!  It was a nice blue one with lettering.
They just can't seem to get enough. 
I understand though as it is such a fun thing to do
As we would say in Newfoundland, it was a large day.

Another Outing with Tashia

Hospitality Days in Bathurst started on Wednesday so Tashia, Paul and I went downtown to hear a little of the Maritime Night music (The Navigators, a Newfoundland band was playing).  We sat across the street near the tent to listen and had a great view (no chairs are allowed in the tent and we can't stand for too long).
Two happy people.
It was a nice evening.

I hope that splash is NOT from a fish on Tashia's hook.
I think it may be a fountain.

A proud fisher woman who provided two fish for the family fish fry that evening.  It was a great meal that Jeannine and Gordie cooked up.  Thanks you.

Tashia's Visit


Tashia arrived last week from British Columbia for a two-week visit. Paul and I drove to Moncton to meet her flight. After an overnight stay we headed for Beresford. Our first stop was The Rodd Hotel in Miramichi for lunch on their deck.  It is a beautiful spot on the Miramichi River, well known as one of the best salmon rivers in Canada.

LtoR: Me, Tashia, Paul and Gloria (Paul's sister)

Last Saturday Paul and I hosted a La Croix family gathering at our house.  It was to welcome Tashia home to Bathurst, welcome Gloria back home for her vacation week and to celebrate the birthday of Carmella (Paul's sister).  It was a great gathering with lots of family memories.
