A beautiful rose bush in front of an older home.
On Saturday morning we decided to go to the market in the city. After that we walked downtown along the waterfront where we were on Canada Day. On Saturday it was so quiet.
It was cloudy and a light 'Scotch Mist' was in the air.
Just enough to curl my hair and keep many people indoors.
But not us.
This old building was dressed with a beautiful climbing hydrangea all in bloom. The building used to be a Peugeot car dealership and we bought our first cars from here in the 70's and 80's. After it closed it was renovated for a business. The building has so much character don't you think?
This is the old Barracks from the early 1800's.
On Canada Day there was a stage set up behind it in the square with lots of music and entertainment. All was quiet on this Saturday morning though.
The above building is on the opposite corner from the Barracks.
It houses the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame.
Farther along the block up from the Barracks is the large brick building that houses the Law Courts.
This building used to be the Provincial Normal School.
It was where Murray's mother went to study to be a school teacher in the 1930's.
This is the left end of the building with the flags of New Brunswick, Canada, and the Acadian flag.
The beautiful wrought iron fence has been there for decades.
Across the corner from the Justice Building is City Hall.
This is our city hall up the street a block from the Barracks.
The square in front of it is being renovated. There is a fountain in front of the steps with a sweet cherub, nicknamed
"Freddy the little nude dude", that resides in the centre of the fountain. He's in safe keeping until the restoration is completed.
The building used to be an opera house and farmers market in the 1800's and early 1900's.
We're back down the street in this photo. This is Officers' Square, part of the historic Garrison District. You can see this building in my photos of Canada Day when all the crowd was gathered.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the buildings in the historic downtown of Fredericton.
I have more photos of the riverfront to share soon.
Our family arrives this afternoon so I will be scarce here for a few days. I'll try to visit when I can and put up some posts.
The weather is fantastic with temperatures in the 30's (90's F) but high humidity. I'm rather enjoying it! :)
See you soon.
