Down memory lane- part 1

Since it’s my birthday tomorrow I thought I would share a little more about me and my background with the Fundy region. I love looking back at where people come from and reading their biographies so I thought it would be fun to go down memory lane to some familiar spots in Fundy where my family has spent some time. Some of these are priceless.

These 2 photos are oldies from my husband’s side of the family. I can see with our mutual love for the area it was inevitable we would be drawn together and want to build down there. When I see this sign I think of my son working at the the Fundy Guild gift shop last summer- he got lots of questions from people asking where Alma was, 🙂 Maybe we still need this sign up there!

It’s amazing how little this building has changed!! I’m glad the flowers are still as nice!

Summer of ’69- My Mom and Dad at Fundy with my grandparents at Bennett Lake before they headed off to UNB. These are some old pics so bear with me in the quality department. We are talking vintage here!

The playground and green space was and still is popular with families.

 

This was one of our favourite beaches to explore down in Alma at the border of the park when the tide was out. We were so disappointed to see what was done to this beautiful landscape this spring with the man made addition- totally changes the feel, view and memory of this special beach.

Some fun days camping at Headquarters- picking fiddle heads, getting lobster and sticky buns, going to the evening programs at the Amphitheatre, hiking- all wonderful memories.

Some of our favourite look out spots ( we would sometimes have extra kids tag along 🙂 )

One of our favourite spots for picnics! Can’t believe this look off area is the same!!

Had to include this last one since it’s just down the road from our place in Waterside- Cape Enrage has changed a lot as well since we started going here. Looking forward to what the new director has in store for this beautiful gem and treasure of NB.

If you are curious, here is what the seeds look like after a week at home. Not sure if this is how they are supposed to look. One tray got fried in the oven when my son turned it on my accident. Oops, will try planting some more. If any of you have any advice, let me know!!

The random winner of the package of seeds goes to my Mom!

Thanks for reading everyone. Hope you are enjoying the lovely spring weather we have had this week!

Until next time!!

  2. Happy Birthday! I love “vintage” pictures and these ones really showed your connection to The Fundy Park area. Our youngest daughter (31yo) spent two weeks at Cape Enrage for Outdoor Pursuits in high school. My husband and two of our daughters hiked the Fundy Foot Path about 18 year’s ago. I met them after three days…with sticky buns! It is a jewel for NB and we wonder if the Fundy Motor Trail will be a negative for the area. Your seedling look great.

    • Wow! I like the idea of doing the Foot path but I don’t think I could hack it. We are definitely looking forward to the Fundy Trail being done- we love that drive, just don’t like how long it takes to get there so being able to go through Fundy will be fun! Thanks!
