The beautiful Fundy Trail and a dedication

Before we get to the beautiful Fundy Trail Parkway which we visited this past weekend, I want to dedicate this post to my dear Aunt Diane Page who we  lost this past week to cancer. We celebrated her life on Monday in Quispamsis where she and her family have lived since the early 70s. She was a lover of family and photos. One of the last times I saw her she was still trying to get on her tablet and show me her most recent photos of her family. Her family had her albums out to view during the visitation time. I came across a couple of her and my uncle on the suspension bridge and with their vehicle crossing the Big Salmon River back in the day when all there was was a rough dirt road to get there. She also had some of her grand kids down to St. Martin’s  this summer so I knew she liked getting down to this area. It’s an easy quick trip from Saint John to get there and enjoy the day by the sea and in another couple years it will be an even easier trip from Alma to access this beautiful area. Right now it takes about 45 minutes from Saint John or  1.5 hours from Moncton to get to St. Martin’s and the start of the Fundy Trail Parkway.

Let’s go glamping!

Down the road past the Hopewell Rocks and along the beautiful drive on route 114 that follows the coast with views of Grindstone Island, you will come to some idyllic pastures with views of horses out on  the marsh or you may see some horses and riders out for a ride near the Sawmill Creek bridge as you come to the entrance of Broadleaf Farm Ranch. I love seeing what’s going on at the ranch every time we pass to go to the cottage.
