This week we are following Jo, our Communications Officer, as she shares how she has been living well ........................................................................... On a regular day living well for Jo means time spent in the woods with her four legged companion Ruby or perhaps hunting for old junk at a flea market.
Jo's Story this week
I decided to live well by engaging in touristy activities around NB. I fell a lot, laughed even more, made some new friends and connected with old friends. Living well this past week has been about new adventures, and exploring the place I am from.
1 | Took a trip to Mactaquac Provincial Park to go skating. This time of year the sun sets behind the pond, making for a picturesque way to end a long winter's day.
2 | These two girls lent me a GT so I could try my hand and sliding down the hill. While I made it down in one piece I did not have my dad handy to tow me back up!
3 | I had never been to the Hopewell Rocks before, I went on a whim and I did not regret it. I am extremely grateful, that I was able to hike through the woods to see these beautiful old rocks. If you have a chance to go off season I would say take it, perhaps pack snow cleats, the trail system is icy in the winter!
4 | I had to pull over to take this photograph of Mary’s Cove. Mary’s Point Road is something you need to experience; it is the part of the scenic route on the way to Cape Enrage. I stopped in a church parking lot for fifteen minutes and watched the water without a single human interrupting my view.
5 | The drive in to Cape Enrage had me a little nervous, dodging downed trees from the most recent ice storm, but when I saw the Bay of Fundy poking through the gaps in the tree line I knew I had to keep on. I loved this place, full of boardwalks and incredible viewing towers. I plan to make a trip back in the spring or summer to check out the Cape Enrage Nature Preserve and stroll along the beach.
6 | Fundy National Park; my first order of business was to find a washroom, and since the Yurts are open all season I was lucky enough to use a real washroom (for the first time all day). I am happy I made this last stop, the trail was so beautiful the setting sun passing through the trees created the perfect mood for my last walk of the day. I didn’t stay long this time, but have booked a camp site in June for one night, long enough to get sticky buns in Alma (all that really matters).
7 | I have a friend who is obsessed with old snowmobiles, when I am lucky, he lets me to drive them on his trail. Driving a vintage Elan through the woods, just slightly faster than a walking pace, is my kind of snowmobiling. I will take any chance I am given to be in nature.
That is it from me friends, thanks for coming along, I had an exceptional week. I can't wait to fill you in on my next set of adventures.
