Kingsbrae Gardens

Again I have to apologize for the long time between posts to this blog. It has been a very busy few days. Firstly, thanks to everyone that is following along with my New Brunswick Adventure. The main reason I wanted to do this blog was because I wanted to stay off of social media while I was here, this format allowed me to update my progress in one central location.

This week started off poorly with a long bout of food poisoning. It was horrible. Luckily I am surrounded by caring and compassionate people and I was well looked after. It must have killed Nathan that he wasn’t here to look after me.

I was then visited by two old friends that made the trek out from Ottawa to see me and some other friends on one of the many islands around this neck of Canada. It was a wonderful evening. We had dinner at the Kennedy Inn, where they stayed the night, and then we walked along Front street and the pier and then we said our goodbyes for the evening.

Front Street Pier - Should I paint this?

This beautifully done renovation just outside of downtown St Andrews. If I could get something like this I’d be down to live here. I really really really want to paint this.

The next day, David, Steve and I went for a drive and discovered some of the beautiful areas around town. We hit Katy’s Cove, it reminded me of the beach at Camp Crystal Lake. We then went to Ministers Island, but the tide was coming in way too quickly so we ended up at the St Andrews Blockhouse National Historic site. The beach was amazing. Looked like what a beach on Mars would look like.

The Red beach was awesome to see. So very different from the beaches on the West Coast.

After that, the three of us headed up to Kingsbrae Gardens to check out the grounds. It was so beautiful. My pictures do not do it justice but I wanted to share with you the splendor of the gardens. Check out a video i found online of the gardens below.

I promise this will only be an introduction to the gardens. I will share with you some pictures of the gardens in the next few days. Tomorrow is another open studio for the public. After tomorrow I will share with you some of the art that I have been working on and some that I have finished,

Check back soon for another update in the days to come. Thanks for following along.
