Random Acts Of Kindness

20160813_130120Our next adventure takes place in St Martins, New Brunswick.  We camped at Century Farms Family Campground.  This campground has been around for many years.  It is very clean and the staff are very friendly and accomodating.  Choose from tenting, staying in your trailer or you can rent a small cabin.  The location is ideal.  We recommend this campground.

20160811_153926We recently purchased these foldable bikes.  We like them much better than our mountain bikes and they fit into a bag which conveniently fits into the van.

St martins is a very inviting town.  There are several of these benches with edible gardens throughout the town.

20160811_130646We found this very old unnamed graveyard from the early 1800’s.

 

20160811_110835Ever wondered where all the bees are?  They are here on this front garden….hundreds of them.  Across the road from this house is The Coastal Tides Restaurant.  We recommend this place if you are in the area…great food, service and very reasonably priced.

 

20160811_114117We took our bikes out for the day and ventured out to the caves.  This is a great place to explore.

We unfortunately experienced quite a bit of rain while in St Martins.  On our third day…which happened to be rainy…we ventured to St John to do a little shopping. Whenever opportunity presents itself, we hand out a card for our blog and share with people a little of what we are doing.  We met a woman in dollarama who sparked up a conversation with us in which we shared our adventure.  She was very excited for us and we had a great conversation.  We parted ways and about 10 minutes later she appeared again to hand us an envelope and wish us well.  In the envelope was a beautiful card and an american $100 bill.  Thank you very much Sandy.

We have experienced other random acts of kindness and generosities in support of our big trip.  We appreciate them all.  We want to take this opportunity to thank a few of these people.  Thank you to Rose, Twila and Linda for helping us with our supper fundraiser.  Thank you to Edith Ann for providing a birdhouse for us to raffle.  Thank you to Ruth for prividing a quilt for us to raffle, making curtains for our trailer and currently she is making denim bags for our homeless children out of recycled jeans.  Thank you to Dale for providing hundreds of movies on an external hard drive for our viewing pleasure while on the road.  And, thank you to Rhonda and her husband for the many hundreds of songs they downloaded onto a flash drive.  We are truly blessed.

We spent our last day in St Martins at Fundy Trail Park with some really good friends. This beautiful park has so much to see including a swinging foot bridge where I conquered my fear of heights.

Hebrews 13:2  Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
