Mactaquac Lake, part of the St. John River above the Mactaquac Dam.
Saturday evening after supper at the local diner we went for a little drive around some of the backroads in our area. It was a beautiful evening with clear blue skies and a warm sun shining on the landscape. We came across freshly ploughed fields, farms and cattle grazing on the lush green grass. A couple of the roads have some serious pot holes ~ a couple of pot holes were 2 feet wide and almost a foot deep ~ so one had to be very cautious and drive slowly. I sure wouldn't want to drive that road in the dark!
There is a river at the bottom of that road on the other hill. How would you like to drive down that in the winter!! It scares me even in the summer.
A pretty resting place. It's nice that this elm tree hasn't yet succumbed to the Dutch Elm Disease that thousands of them have died from in our province.
A view of the St. John River valley that I've shared many times.
A closer view with some of the larger buildings - condos and a hotel - on the river front in Fredericton.
A beautiful farm with red barns.
We came across 3 farms with 3 different types of cattle ~ Guernsey, Heifer and Limousin.
It was a lovely drive.
I was trying to take photos from my passenger window but the mirror kept getting in the way so I got a picture of me, playing with my camera. :-)
A selfie of me.
We didn't get the garden planted yet. We had great weather to do it too. But, we got some yard work done and trimmed the maple tree in the backyard that had a lot of dead branches on it (still not finished). It looks like a rainy week ahead so we may be poking seeds in the ground in the rain. At least they'll get watered.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you all have a great week!
