Looking up river from Wilson's Sporting Lodge on the Miramichi River
We were visiting along the Miramichi River in central New Brunswick just over a week ago. The Miramichi River is known for it's salmon fly fishing and is famous around the world as many great and famous people would come here in past years for the thrill of catching a beautiful Atlantic salmon.
Hip waders, used for fishing in the river, are drying on the porch of the lodge.
This old sign was on the original lodge which was located farther down the road/river.
This is the lodge where there is a large restaurant, lounge and a reception room downstairs. The views from the upper floor are beautiful. We had a fabulous meal there enjoying the view and even saw an eagle. Wilson's was established in 1855 in McNamee and is advertised as Central New Brunswick's Four Season Resort. Their website is here ~ Wilson's Camps. We are planning on a trip over in the fall to enjoy the fall colours while we dine.
Some canoes along the shore.
Looking down river.
The old railway bed that runs along the river has been converted to a trail used by ATV's (all terrain vehicles) and snowmobiles and hikers.
Looking up river as the dark rain clouds move in. The little black flies were so bad we could hardly stand it. They bite!! So we didn't stay down there long.
Tomorrow is Friday, the day before our son's wedding. I won't have time to post then so I am a day early this week. (at least I'm here!) It's been so busy. The weather is calling for thunder showers most of the day tomorrow.....the day we set up for the wedding....outdoors!! Then Saturday is calling for showers in the afternoon. I'm checking the weather on line just about every hour hoping it's going to change.... what will be, will be. We'll have a grand time anyway.
My brother's health hasn't changed this week. He has one week to go until his next treatment. Please continue to pray he will be strong enough to have it next Thursday and that the nausea will go away. It breaks my heart.
Well, I'm off to do some cleaning and wedding preparations. I hope you have a great weekend whatever you're doing. I'm planning on enjoying Mark and Jenn's wedding as much as possible. I may even take my own camera and get some snapshots to share with you later on. Thank you for all your kind comments on my last post and for your prayers for my brother. I appreciate them so much. I am not able to visit or comment much but have been visiting a few of you this week.
Take care and enjoy your weekend.
