Summer time

We went to New Brunswick last week, Jonathan went for business and we just tagged along for the hotel, pool and food.  I feel like I have been neglecting my blog because of the camera situation, its just not same without one :(

We did the tour of Moncton, Saint John, and Fredericton. New Brunswick is really rural, mostly trees the drive is pleasant. During the week Leeluu and I did the tourist thing, we went to community water parks, hotel pools, we visited the Saint John farmers market and  thrift stores.

Moncton Centennial  Park

On the weekend we booked a few nights at a bed and breakfast, but it was not your typical B&B. We stayed at lovely spot just outside of the Bay of Fundy National Park, An Artists Garden. Everything about this place was special, and I could tell that a lot of love went it to the design and building of it. It was really nice that there was a kitchen in our room, and a claw foot tub. Check out this awesome retro oven!

Karin the owner, let Leeluu play in the room next to ours when it was empty, there was a secret hide out in the loft. Of course Leeluu loved it.  We went into the town of Alma and ate at the Octopus Garden, the soup was delicious as was the homemade strawberry lemonade. We visited Cape Enrage and got a tour of a 150 year old light house. It cleared up that night so we had a windy beach fire.

The next day we headed for home, not without a stop at the water slides though :) I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer!
