Moncton in July.... during a heat wave...

... is very, very HOT !!! Dave and I spent the past four days in Moncton visiting Ginette and André. Some days it went up to 34 with the humidity - that's hot for us. We are used to the ocean breeze. There are so many nice things to see around where they live. Apart from the usual dining out, farmers market, very little shopping done this time, we celebrated Ginette's 30th with a group of her wonderful friends...

... we went to Le Pays de la Sagouine in Bouctouche, New Brunswick. We had reservations for an evening dinner theatre but we spent the afternoon walking around and visiting the site.

That sign I'm holding in the first picture is part of a contest they are having to celebrate the 40th anniversary of La Sagouine. Contest ends August 15th so you'll be hearing more about this in future posts.

We also had fun discovering the wonders of Hopewell Rocks. It really is breathtaking !

We always have fun when we visit ''the kids''. Thanks Ginette and André xxo

Right now...

... we are loving the explosion of colors in our flower gardens, Mr. Puss visiting for still one more week, the soothing scent of lavender everytime I go by, many four-wheeling adventures, homemade whole wheat english muffins, eating fresh from the garden meals every day and enjoying this beautiful summer as it zooms by a wee bit too fast for this girl. Two weeks vacation coming up and yes, I will be spending those two weeks doing much of the same as listed above.

Hope everyone is well.

Canada Day weekend

And the weekend isn't over yet. Yesterday was Canada's Birthday. We had two fabulous days so far - weather wise and fun wise. We went to a beautiful lake, drank cold refreshing drinks, made a campfire, had a clambake on said fire, found a cache and went on a two hour all-terrain drive on the trail and much more. We'll see what's in store for tomorrow... maybe we should rest to go back to work on Monday.
