Ahhhh....beautiful St. Andrews-by-the-Sea.....a small resort town on the coast of New Brunswick right on the Passamaquoddy Bay. Above is a photo of Minister's Island and the former summer estate of the late Sir William VanHorne. See more about this man here.
A favourite haunt of ours during the summer months, we try to get down there a few times a season so, on Sunday we decided to take a drive for the day. Our friends D and T came with us and although it was very overcast and cool when we left the sun was shining for most of the time we were there and it was quite warm even with the gusty winds.
These are two beautiful homes along the shore.
The tide was out but was quickly coming in so we wandered the beach for a while looking for shells and beach glass.
There were a lot of rocks wearing long seaweed hair so T scratched a face on this one.
There were stretches of rock and periwinkles all over.
The tide came in quickly over this spit of beach.
Reflections of clouds and sky on the water as the tide rolls in.
Within half an hour after I took this photo the beach was pretty well covered with water.
We had a lovely picnic lunch with this beautiful view above. We found a freshly stained table next to the water and it was sheltered enough that the wind wasn't bad. The sun shone and it was just perfect. No flies or mosquitoes either.
Obviously I took too many pictures again! I think it was about 125. So. I'll save some for another post...or two. I hope you enjoyed the seacoast at St. Andrews.

Have a lovely week.
