On Saturday we decided to take a little day trip to the coast again. It is the same coast as last week's visit to St. Martins on the Bay of Fundy. St. Andrews-by-the-Sea is on the Passamaquoddy Bay which is a sort of interior bay off of the Bay of Fundy. It's kind of blocked in by 3 islands - Grand Manan, Campobello and Deer.
I have shared many visits to St. Andrews if you wish to look back on my labels along the sidebar of my page.
It was mostly cloudy and threatened rain but the sun peeked out once in a while and it was quite warm at 24 C. Tee shirt weather.
We walked out the wharf first thing. It was very calm and the tide was out. The air smelled of the sea and it was very relaxing.
This is the fencing along the dock at the shore line with a view of the harbour beyond.
This is an old style lobster trap.
Dory boat shaped flower boxes
Old buoys and floats line the stairwell of a building.
We walked down Water St. and looked in few shops.
The sign below is on the front of The Whale Store above.
It's 213 years old!!
There are some very old and beautiful homes and buildings in this little seaside town as you can see in the photo below.
The harbour is behind the buildings on the right.
The market square.
Above is the Cottage Craft store. They sell high quality and beautiful hand crafted items made from wool. This building is from the mid-1800's and is situated on the Market Square.
I took this photo last September. Note how the left end of the building is kind of sagging!
We had supper at the Harbour Front Restaurant right on the water and enjoyed this wonderful view of the wharf and
the tide coming in.
We also enjoyed some great seafood.
I ordered a lobster roll and it was loaded with big chunks of fresh lobster. So Good!
We always drive around the point to enjoy the view.
There was a bit of a fog hanging over the outer harbour and this is what I saw looking straight out.
But, when I looked to my right I saw this beautiful sight of the sun shining through the thin fog and dancing on the water. This is in colour and I didn't edit the photo at all other than I thought it deserved a frame. :)
That's what we did on the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend. We also went to church on Sunday and our evening services have started again after a month's break.
On Monday Murray did a lot of chores and we both did a lot of cleaning out in a closet and in the basement storage area. What a lot of junk we save!! It felt good to get rid of some of the clutter that we don't use or need.
I made a blueberry buckle dessert as we had Mark and Jenn over for supper. I found the recipe on line (All Recipes dot com) and had never made it before It was really yummy.
It poured rain from Monday afternoon until 7:00 this morning. Yesterday it was quite chilly and today it's very warm and humid. Thunder showers are in the forecast around noon with sunny breaks later on.
I guess you could say we had a busy weekend and also some time to enjoy our day trip to St. Andrews.
Thank you for all your visits and comments on my poem/prose/words yesterday.
They were just thoughts that came to my head that best described September to me.
Have a great day!
