So today our ventures started early with the sound of a train whistle and the shaking and rumbling coming from the ground underneath.  Oh well at least the trains didn’t run all night, I was thinking about that just before I fell asleep. McDonalds was offering free internet along with free coffee so we stopped there to check our mail and everyone is getting on without us just fine.

Our first drive out of St. John was a bumpy road that winded and twisted for about an hour.  When I questioned that fact that we might be lost, I was told we were on the right track.  I happen to notice the French Gardener making changes to Dash board Sally last night  and I have a suspicion he might have tried to set the GPS to take the least amount of roads with antique shops along the way, can you do that?

After we got off the back roads of St. John we did find some improved roads and along the way I found a little barn charm.

We  happened to find a big and had to stop for a picture, I’m all about smalls and the French Gardener is all about bigs.

Real strings and all

This violin is a tribute to Don Messer and had a little plaque with a description

He figured he could play it like a guitar

 

We located a gift shop just South of Harvey, NB on 2686 Route 3 at the BMR and wouldn’t you know it the power was out in the town of Harvey and all the surrounding area.  The French Gardener got our flashlight out of the camper when he saw me flicking a lighter in the back room because I found a big section of scrapbooking paper and other finds.  I found two things I need and for a good price because the cash registers ran off electricity.

We stopped at St. Croix to take a few pictures and found another big, this time a golf ball

In the field next was a self serve golf course, where you could leave the money and take a score card and a golf cart, fun or what?

We continued down the road until we came to the shops of St. Andrews. We parked across from this large wall mural

She is a beauty isn’t she?

Then just around the corner I found this neat candy shop

And across from the candy shop was Scrooge and Marleys, a shop where I found,

I was so excited to find this cute plate then visit another few shops before they closed as it was getting dark and things were closing down for the night.
We headed to St. Stephen and on the way we started to see trees with rather large sheets of tin metal on them, any ideas?  This is my mystery for the day, these sheets sure have me puzzled.  Could there be some sort of disease a number of trees are going through? Perhaps the fire department started charging people to take their cat down out of the tree so they are using the sheets as a preventative medicine?  I haven’t got a clue and if you know would you share, meanwhile I’ll go and ask the internet because you should always believe what you read on the internet.

So here we are at A & W having a little bag of onion rings and using the internet and a gorilla just walked in looking for a treat.  When I found out they were passing out root beer flavoured suckers I had to get me a few, they were ummmmm good.  Oh and a little trivia, did you know that A&W stood for Allen & Wright?  The last names of the founders, silly me all these years I’ve been saying Albert  & Walter, now i have no idea who they are.  Ha ha ha my right side just said  A&W stood for Amburger and Woootbeer.  Ha ha I made a funny, Oh my I think it is time for bed.

Good night,
Tomorrow I think Gangong Chocolates opens at 8am.
