Weekend Getaway

20170910_103949

While the good weather is still here, we decided to take off in our trailer for the weekend.  We headed to a small town just outside Bathurst, NB.

Meet Charlotte.

We found this painted rock.  We have hidden it somewhere in our hometown of Chipman for someone else to find.  Good luck.

We took off with our trailer for a few days and headed north.

We spent 5 days at the Val Comeau campground in Val Comeau, New Brunswick. This is a fantastic campground.  Our original site was too open and windy but the staff was very accomodating about moving us to a different site.  Bath houses are kept extremely clean and the grounds very well maintained.  Located on a peninsula.  Dig for clams right off shore, fish for bass or take a boat out a bit for fresh oysters and mussels.  Live entertainment provided every Saturday night.  If you are travelling through New Brunswick with a trailer, this location is a must.  We highly recommend it.

The small town of Tracedie Sheila is located near by to the campground.  We highly recommend the restaurant L’ Entracte.  The food and service were excellent.  We had the most amazing poutine with clams.

 

This little town has some incredible churches.

We saw quite a few residences with their own lighthouses.

Meet Aunt Roberta and her boyfriend Ivan.  We had a great visit with them…they don’t live far from the campground.

We popped in to see our friends Hal and Janet on the way home.  They own Salmon River Bend Outfitters.  If you are looking to bear hunt or rent a cabin…this is the place to go.

School is starting back which means the summer is over.  We are hoping to get some more time out with our trailer before the bad weather comes.

Colossians 3:15  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  And be thankful.

We spent a week at the Milton Heights campground in Milton, Ontario.  Great location with all the amenities.  We recommend this place.

We then spent a few days in Darlington Provincial Park in Courtice, Ontario.  Located right on the lake with fabulous surroundings.  Staff are very attentive and the grounds well maintained.  We recommend this place.

Mandy gave us this great idea to put a canopy right over our trailer.  We added a solid panel and a couple tarps which created a changing area.  Thanks Mandy.

We are camping at Darlington Provincial Park for a few days.  Slowly making our way home.
