Bay of Fundy

I am currently on vacation on the East coast and having a blast.  We spent a bit of time in the picturesque Quebec city on our way through.  I will share photos of that later as there are way too many to sort through on the road.  Then we headed to the Bay of Fundy, home of the highest tides in the world.  The views were breathtaking (more on those later as well).

Of course we are useless without our coffee so we claimed this artisan café in the town of Alma as ours for the time we were there…

There was such character in this place, they had a sign that read “please loiter”.  There were great nooks and crannies to sit and enjoy your goodies and a back deck.

They also had a jamming area set up for local bands.

The owners were glass blowers so they were selling the coolest things.  They reproduced the old glass buoys fishermen used many years ago.

I wanted to pick one up but was hoping to find an authentic one in our travels.   Lucky for me Chris spotted the exterior netting part on a beach we were driving by so stopped to pick it up.  Such a score.  I did end up getting the inner glass ball part at the store.  So, I now have a semi-authentic one which is good enough for me as the original glass balls are almost impossible to find.

On our drives through the country, we found the glass blower’s studio and house.

They even had alpacas and looked like they grew a lot of their ingredients they used for the café.

On our drives we came across a one room school house…

It even had an outhouse towards the back of the lot.

An old community centre…

This adorable old house…

The lighthouses were pretty cool…

There were so many cute little studios tucked into country roads all over the place.  One of which was this Studio on the Marsh.  I was pretty jealous of most of the artists having studios in such a beautiful area of the country and so close to the ocean.

I was especially so for this space as the view behind was amazing.  Maybe one day.

Well, just wanted to share a little of our amazing week.  I am feeling so refreshed and inspired that I wish I had brought a little art kit with me so I could create on the road.  Although I am enjoying taking all of these pictures, which is also a creative outlet.  I think it is important to do something creative every day.  It nourishes the soul.  The rest of this week has been spent with family and showing the kids some of my favourite places growing up.  Unfortunately, it is all over tomorrow.  Hope you are all having a great week!!
