Well, it's our first snow fall for Winter 2014. This is what greeted me this morning:

and it's still coming down.

Believe it or not, there is a harbour beyond those power lines! On the positive side, it's warmer today than it has been the last few days when it was sunny.

Final Holiday Post

On Oct. 1st I started the trip home. I took these just outside Drummondville, PQ. It just screamed 'autumn' - golden light, harvested fields.

After leaving Ontario, we headed across the prairies.

Morning mist.

Harvest time.

Lots of sloughs.

As you can see, the flat prairies are not flat.

Have no idea what this is. It's what you look at sitting in the Winnipeg train station.  One friend said it looked like some thing designed by an architect when he was drunk.

Leaving Jasper I was back in my mountains and I knew I was almost home.

And the lakes with the fall coloured trees.

It was an incredible holiday - so many memories.

Prince Edward Island

Headed for PEI on the 27th. On the way, we had to stop and see the world's largest lobster in Shediac.

For a small province, New Brunswick has a lot of "world's largest" things to see.

We continued our trek and approached Confederation Bridge.

This is the view from the bridge.

Bummer isn't it? The safety rail is right at window height - truckers are about the only people who can see anything.

There is a rise in the middle of the bridge where it goes over the sea lanes.

Our first glimpses of the island.

We had to go to Green Gables of course - I loved the Anne stories.

The barn.

Green Gables

The front yard.

And where L.M. Montgomery grew up in Cavendish.

Where her home stood.

Then on to Charlottetown.

Confederation Square and war memorial.

And just shots of the island scenery.

Loved the bright colours.

It was a wonderful day and as you can see, I had fabulous weather for my whole visit to NB.

Seeing New Brunswick Part 2

Forgot a couple of stops from the 24th. We saw the oldest bank in New Brunswick

And a covered bridge.

There are a lot of covered bridges in New Brunswick and I found them very interesting.

On the road again on the 25th. This time we headed up beyond Saint John. Had a lovely drive through the Saint John River valley.

Then on into Nackawic to see the world's largest axe.

Then we crossed the river on a small ferry

and headed northish, stopping at a roadside fruit/vegetable stand with a very nice bakery section.

Our final destination, Hartland, to see the world's longest covered bridge.

And then back to June's.
