Millstream River Bridge #5, Centreville, built in 1911.
Well, I've been missing for almost a week here but all is well and I've been very busy. We are finally getting our summer weather and had 5 great days of sunshine and heat in a row!! Today it's cloudy, foggy and misty and we may get a thundershower later, but that's ok as we need the rain. It's supposed to be sunny and warm through the weekend.
Last Friday Murray and I took a drive. I told you in my last post that we were going to Moncton and The Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy but since the tide would be high during most of the day we chose plan B and stayed inland. Oh....if you want to enjoy walking on the beach around The Hopewell Rocks the tide has to be out and since the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world.....well, you understand that walking on the beach would be impossible at that particular spot. We will go there another time. I've been wanting to go to Corn Hill Nursery and Cedar Cafe again so we took some beautiful backroads to get there once we got off the highway.
We saw 3 covered bridges in our travels, dined at the Cedar Cafe, enjoyed the beautiful gardens and roses at Corn Hill Nursery, stopped in Sussex and had ice cream and enjoyed the beautiful sunny day. My camera was clicking a lot!
Today I'll share the beautiful rural scenery, farms, and rolling hills and I'll share the covered bridges and Corn Hill on separate days. Enjoy the photos.
There are Llamas on this neatly groomed farm.
We came across this interesting spot near Mount Middleton. Look at that view!
I love this field of daisies.
You know you're in farm country when....
....you follow a tractor down the road and wait for a safe spot to pass it. Then you come upon another tractor with a wagon loaded with the large round bales with a flat tire. Sorry, no photo.
We stopped in Sussex for ice cream and drove around the area. Sussex is nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by rolling hills and farms. It's known as a dairy town and also has a lot of murals painted on buildings in the downtown. This one was very a very pretty Victorian scene. They have an old train station that has an ice cream store (Sully's) and a museum/tourist information centre.
For more info on the Sussex area visit here.
I took this photo in August of 2013
Inside Sully's Ice Cream in the former train station. The sign is from the old train station days.
The bridge in the town is stone and each corner has a 'castle' on it.
We stopped at a lovely antique store in Jemseg on our way home.
Oh yeah.....it is filled to the brim on both floors and in a garage out back. And I behaved myself and didn't buy anything.
And that was part one of our day trip. I hope you'll come back and see the rest soon. Now, I have to visit my blog friends that I've been neglecting. I hope you have a great day!
