I want to wish you a Happy Spring...
I know a lot of you have true cause to celebrate but as they say..
Meanwhile in Canada.... lol..
This will be my final post about snow.. honest..
We heard from a sweet friend that St. Martins which is where my little shop and our summer cottage is was covered in snow..
So... we took a little trip..
This is where we started out almost..
As you can see our area has some very high banks of snow..
Where it drifts sometimes there is really only about one lane..
Remember this is on a rural road and not our main highways...
They are well cleared and mostly bare...
I coaxed Terry into turning around so I could take these pictures..
When we went by it reminded me of a bunch of ladies at the supermarket waiting in line to get their groceries bagged up.. grin..
They are actually waiting their turn to get to the hay feeder.. smile..
Patience is a virtue, dear ladies..
They all were wondering what I wanted with them.. grin..
Another friend had said that West Quaco was closed and as we have some sweet friends living there we went there first to see how it really was..
But by the time we arrived it was all cleared out except for some really high banks..
We went down Lighthouse Road to check the light house..
It was still there but not very visible due to the high banks of snow..
Just for fun I have included a pic I took last Summer..
Same place.. Same station..
Different scene, though.. smile..
A quaint little cottage over there..
The lady who owns it bought her top window curtain from my shop.. smile.
And our friend's house but they were away..
Then we went back to St. Martins..
The sweetest little village on the Bay of Fundy..
I think so, anyway..
See that lovely house up on the cliff..
It reigns supreme over the village and my sweet friend, Gwen lives there..
She is an artist and she and her husband make jewellery..
She blogs and takes the most beautiful pictures of St. Martins..
You can find her HERE...
Well as you can see everyone is busy trying to push that snow back..
And it is a very real task...
There is my little shop coming up..
It is right on Main Street..
And you can see the back of our old summer cottage..
My goodness.... you can hardly see the shop at all..
And there is the cottage..
Pretty well buried, I would say..
Hard to imagine that in a few months the snow will be gone and we will be there opening up the windows and doors and bringing some life back into the old place..
Making more memories for our heart's pages..
This is the end of our street and another friend's cottage..
But this is what it will look like in a few months..
Worth waiting for, eh? smile..
On with the story...
The fishermen still go out and there were quite a few boats there..
The tide was in..
And here are the world famous St. Martins Caves...
How I love the Bay of Fundy....
I have visited St. Martins since I was a baby..
My Mom grew up here for you new followers..
My Dad was a lumberjack and was working for my grandfather and met my Mom at a dance..
They married and my Mom was the only one of 12 to move away from this little village..
Sorry to bore you with a bit of family history.. grin..
One of the two covered bridges ..
And this is the second one..
Well my dears, it is time to head home and I was glad to be down and see it all...
This road leads us home..
Another hour and half and we will be there..
I had to share this picture..
I saw one similar on the internet..
It is titled..
CANADA... WE WILL NOT SURRENDER !!!..
It has been quite a Winter but now it is officially Spring..
And even though the snow is coming once again to our Maritime Provinces over night and again tomorrow we do know that Winter will have to give up soon...
It has certainly put up a good fight here in our part of the world but underneath the snow the earth is coming back to life and flowers are pushing their way up to greet us once again..
We must look forward because joy cometh in the morning..
Maybe not tomorrow morning but one of these days.. grin..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day and once again we are getting snow..
Hopefully, not enough to cancel church but if so I can still talk to the Lord right here...
Take care, my dears..
Enjoy your weekend and as I promised ...
There will be no more Winter posts..
Looking forward to hearing from you all..
