Well we had finally reached our destination of St John, NB, long time home to Marie’s brother Kevin and wife Phyllis. It has been a few years since we had been their way. It was so great to get together with you again.
The weather was superb and Kevin took us on a glourius tour. There is so much to see and do in this historic and beautiful city. Here are some photo highlights:
We stopped for lunch at the restaurant right above the reversing falls. We had the best table in the house and the best seafood chowder Dave has ever had. While we were eating, the tide came in. What at first was rushing waters and huge eddies where the St John River flows into the Bay of Fundy, became calm. Some pleasure boats then started coming into the mouth of the river.
There was a very large cruiseship in town as we toured the downtown area. We then visited the lovely Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, their parish church, before returning home.
Dave and Kevin played some billiards in the basement while Marie and Phyllis reminisced about the good old days growing up in Freshwater and Dunville, Nfld, as well as their nursing school days together. Thanks Kevin for humouring Dave before cleaning the table! The ribs dinner and delicious fruit cake for the road were great Phyllis.
Thank you so much Bro Kevin and Sister Phyllis for your warm welcome, great hospitality and all that laughter. You guys are the greatest couple with the greatest family who know how to have fun. We enjoyed our visit immensely and look much forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks for travelling with us reading all these blogs!
