Our GPS. :)
A couple weekends ago we took a drive to the Kingston Peninsula near Saint John. We were invited to friends for a barbecue.
The day was sunny and very hot and humid with threats of thunder storms but we had a beautiful drive down river.
To get to the Kingston Peninsula from the Saint John side one needs to cross the river by car ferry at two different locations ~
Grand Bay-Westfield and Quispamsis.
There are two ferries running at this crossing at Grand Bay-Westfield, one going each way.
Here, the cars are waiting to depart from the ferry to the side we're on.
I always like to get out of the car during the 5 minute crossing to take pictures. As you can see the skies are hazy and cloudy. Little did we know that those clouds were producing an F1 tornado up river near Grand Lake.
A pretty covered bridge.
The beautiful view from the bridge.
As we drove around the pretty roads the skies all of a sudden opened up with very heavy rain for about 20 minutes.
Then the sun started to break through the clouds.
This is the other ferry crossing at Quispamsis.
When we left to go home after a wonderful evening, we got on the ferry again and headed up the highway. (below)
Of course I had to get out and take pictures again.
This is the sunset after all the storms and rain.
I took this last photo as we drove into the sunset night.
I am enjoying my blog break but I'm sorry I'm not getting around to visit you much. Thanks for all your visits and comments on my last post. I'll be around when I can.
Take care my friends.
