Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I'm juggling the odds of time right now to be able to post this before Thanksgiving is over. The days between my last post and now have been a complete blur to me. Filled with excitement, adventures, more food than I've ever seen in my life, and every other important ingredient required to create incredible memories.
Friday night I went start gazing at Fort Beauséjour with two new friends of mine. They went above and beyond explaining to me the history of this place, and reenacting the stories their tour guide had told them when they toured the place. The air was frigid and the winds howled as we made our way through the small dark tunnels with only a small flashlight to guide us through. Imaginations went wild as we tried to recreate in our minds what it must have been like for the people who stood in the exact same spot we were standing 250 years ago. When my personalized tour came to an end, we set up our blankies and telescope and watched in awe at the beauty above us. The most spectacular moment being the moment I saw a shooting star!
Saturday started bright and early as Beth, my little nephew and another new friend, Fran headed to Wentworth Ski for their 'Fall Festival of Colours'. After hitting up a few flea markets along the way, we finally arrived at the ski resort where we met up with another familiar face, Karen.
This little man (who just turned 19 months old the day this picture was taken) outdid himself and impressed the socks right clean off us all with how much walking he did and how much he loved every second of it. A true adventurer in every sense. Here are some more pictures from the hike.

Yesterday Karen, Beth and I adventured to the Bouctouche sand dunes in New Brunswick. What a difference in the weather. Last week we had snow on Thursday, I was bundled up with layers of clothes for Friday's adventures and here on Sunday I rolled up my jeans and walked barefoot in the sand as I splashed my toes in the ocean. That's something to be thankful for! I took my time strolling the beach. Opening my senses to the wonders around me. Soaking up every moment as I gave myself permission to live in the present. It's a destination that will remain close in my heart and hopefully as I gain more driving experience I will be able to return on my own in future. On the way home we stopped into Cold Stone for my first 'ultimate ice-cream experience'. Let me tell you, it was out of this world yummy!Here are some pictures from our adventure:
