Any way you look at it, the St. John River is beautiful especially on a sunny summer day. It flows through our province and our city and into the Bay of Fundy at Saint John. Funny that this 'saint' is spelled differently for the river and the city.
The Westmorland St. Bridge crosses in the downtown.
There were a lot of boaters out on this day in early August.
The north side of the river. The Nashwaak River flows into the St. John River just past the point where the people are sitting. (photo below)
Looking toward Carleton Park on the north side of the river.
looking south on the walking bridge
the Princess Margaret Bridge crosses below Fredericton
When you leave the bridge you see this beautiful view of the green along the river with the spire of Christ Church Cathedral across the street.
This isn't the street. It's the walking trail that follows along the river in the downtown of Fredericton. It's a beautiful place to enjoy the beauty of nature, the city and the river.
When we got back to my car next to the cathedral we heard a noise in this oak tree. We looked up and saw this little fella looking down at us. Raccoons in the city. So cute but so destructive. I wonder how many garbage cans he raided that night?
I wonder if he has a nest in this broken off part of the tree. This was at least 30 feet up.
I see you.
I love our nearby city, the capital of our province of New Brunswick. We are blessed to live here.
After 3 days of temperatures in the low 30'sC with a humidex into the low 40'sC, today it dropped to 23C with no humidity. It truly felt like a typical fall day and was quite nice although I must say I'm going to miss the heat of summer. The nights are definitely cooler too (9C last night).....almost down to frosty temperatures (zero). There'll soon be frost on the pumpkins. We'll have many more beautiful days ahead to enjoy the outdoors though. I do have some major weeding to get done. I can't hardly find the cucumbers and squash in the garden for weeds. What a mess! I hope to make Lady Ashburnham pickles this week. Are you into pickling yet?
Speaking of the new season coming up....I even managed to get some fall decorating done since we got home. I still would like to buy some fall mums and pumpkins for outside....perhaps later this week. Have you started any fall decorating or preparations?
Thank you for all your kind comments and congratulations on the birth of our new grandson. I appreciate it so much. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
