Our Getaway to New River Beach Provincial Park

For the past ten summers, my sisters and I have gone on a camping/glamping trip to New River Beach Provincial Park. We all have grown kids, many of whom are scattered across the country (and come "home" for summer vacations) so coordinating dates for this trip has always been a bit of a challenge. Naturally, if the "kids" are home, none of us want to lose any of the precious time that we have with them. Some years we have gone on our trip as early as mid-June and this year it was the last … [Read more...]

Day Tripping on the Fundy Trail, N.B., Canada

Earlier this week we visited the breathtaking Fundy Trail which is located in southern New Brunswick, Canada and is part of the Trans Canada Trail system.

My siblings and our families try to get together … [Read more...]

Depending on what we plan on doing and where we are going, we usually stay for two to five nights. Camping at … [Read more...]

New River Beach Provincial Park in New Brunswick, Canada

A couple of weeks ago now, as a bit of a final grasp on summer, my sisters and I took a camping trip to New River Beach Provincial Park in New Brunswick. New River Beach is less than an hours drive from my home and I have visited it many, many, many times in the past. I have to say, that even though I have been there numerous times, New River Beach never fails to impress me with its natural beauty and breathtaking ocean views. Early morning fog drifting over the mud flats (low tide) … [Read more...]

My sisters and I recently headed out on a "girls" camping trip.  This was our 4th year and each year we've managed to stay a bit longer...lol.  We had a wonderful time and I thought I would share some photos of our week in a rustic shelter at New River Beach Provincial Park in New Brunswick. {Right about now I can see my sisters cringing and thinking...OMG, I had better not see a picture of myself in a bathing suit...lol...well, they will just have to wait and see!!} … [Read more...]
