This will be my first Open House in 2012 at the Carriage Hill Subdivision in Riverview. I'll be there to show the features and benefits of these three new construction houses that are now ready for occupancy by the first homeowners. Since the Open Houses are on Super Bowl Sunday 2012, on February 5th I'm offering to place the names of those who attend my Open House in a bowl and draw a name for two tickets to the Game Day Tailgate Buffet hosted by Casino New Brunswick, starting at 6 pm on February 5th. (must be 19 years of age or older).

Fourth in the New Brunswick series 'Touring New Brunswick * Next Stop * Lobster at Alma * Fundy Shore'  Allo from Bouctouche! 'La Sagouine' A Proud Canadian Acadian Triumph  Fundy Flower Pots * New Brunswick * Hopewell Rocks New Brunswick's Fundy Countryside * Gentle Panoramics & Wildflowers As mentioned previously, there were so many marvelous photo ops in the Maritimes, that the camera became secondary to my firsthand enjoyment of the wonders around me, from which I absorbed the fullness of the soul-filling experience. This day started with leaving Bouctouche, on through Moncton, Larry Estabrooks  home town, where the heavens were dumping that day. I almost turned back to Halifax, but pressed on, with great weather resulting as I progressed.   I have a habit of photographing the road ...

Enthralled with the day of driving from Moncton (which was pouring buckets!) to the Fundy Shores, then clambering down to the Bay of Fundy's, Fundy Flower Pots, the beautiful scenic drive offered an alternate 'loop' which I took - and so glad I did. (Continuing From Fundy Flower Pots * New Brunswick * Hopewell Rocks  - Onward!) The country scenics along Hwy 915 of New Brunswick's Fundy rural countryside was heady with wildflowers beyond belief, charming gentle panoramics, farms and country houses.   The air was positively rich and sweet with the intoxicatingly seductive scent of wildflowers! It felt so like heaven!!!!  Among the many varieties are the Yellow Indian Paintbrush, Fireweed, Pearly Everlasting, some Delphinium and many quite different to me, that I didn't know.   Stage This ...

Driving through Moncton in rain that was pelting down buckets, I just kept on track, by this time getting used to sensing the tempestuously unpredictable Maritime weather. I lucked out, because by the time I got to the Fundy Shore, the sun was shining.  While the photos show gray skies in the distance, on the NB side of Fundy, the sun really was nice ! The resulting flat light however was too reflective for great shots.   The  Fundy Shore is not to be missed when traveling New Brunswick! Having heard of the Bay of Fundy since I was a child, it was a must to go on the first leg of my Maritime Summer in Nova Scotia. While the NS side of the very large Bay was spectacular, the NB side I found even more breathtaking.      Along with the famous red shores typical in the Martimes, also found ...

A a young kid I have always loved the water whether it be the lake, pool or ocean. Of course, the ocean is my favorite and there has been one place I always wanted to visit, in Canada, the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick. So, a few years ago, we visited Prince Edward Island and on our way there we spent one night in St. Andrews as a stop over to our way to Prince Edward Island. Well, as fate would have it we were socked in by fog. You couldn't even see the water you could hear right in front of you. That was the Bay of Fundy a large body of water that separates New Brunswick from Nova Scotia.We decided that the next trip would be to the Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy. The reason I love this place is that the tide rises approximately 46 feet and at low tide you can walk the ocean flo...

Established in 1784, New Brunswick was at first divided into eight counties by the Territorial Division Act, 1786.In 1845, Albert County was set off from Westmorland County and a new county seat was established in Hopewell Cape, where today you'll find the Albert County Museum, housed in the original municipal building and county jail. Today, the Town of Riverview is by far the largest municipality in Albert County. Riverview is located across the Petitcodiac River from Moncton.
