On The Trail of Loyalists

  During last three-year of exploring New Brunswick, I have stumbled upon locations of known Loyalist assembly. I initially noticed graveyards had bold signage, identifying United Empire Loyalist burial grounds. I didn't quiet get the importance of it. The Loyalists, sounds like a long historical story that I am not getting into, except for this sound [...]

It All Started With Love

Sometime during July, I was taking some landscape photos around Brundage Point River Park in Grand Bay. There were two sculptures and I decided to using them as points of reference and scale in my photography. I was just being a tourist, play around with my camera settings. I had checked out the tourist information office [...]

Hampton, New Brunswick Part 2

The early morning light is perfect, the river is a mirror, and I am in the prettiest spot in New Brunswick this morning. I can't get enough shots. I crawl along the river bank, over rocks, between trees snapping photos; a little of this tree, maybe two trees to frame the picture. Then I have [...]

Sussex New Brunswick- Don’t Just Pass Through

How many times can a person drive through a town and not stop to see what is there?  Apparently, many.  I am guilty.  I have blown through on my way to the FUNDY NATIONAL PARK.   Again on the way to the Hopewell Rocks . I spent a day looking for Semi palmate Plovers at Mary's beach last year, but [...]

The Fundy Trail Parkway, Is Not The Fundy National Park.
