Port George

 

Chris & I took Teddy over to Port George on the Bay of Fundy for a stroll one day last week after supper. The sun was actually shining and we were in search of yet another lighthouse for me to photograph. There is a lot of similarity in lighthouses along the coast. Most seem to be of the Port George type shown above. The Port George lighthouse is no longer functional and has been taken over by a local preservation society. It appears to be in very good condition and the back light of the setting sun made for this great HDR photograph. We also found a picnic area on the water just down the road from Port George where Teddy could have a good run around. The small picnic area would be an ideal overnight RV parking spot during our tour of the Maritimes next summer. No hookups of course but what a view!

 

Last weekend was Chris's father's 80th birthday and to celebrate family members got together for a completely German supper at the Schnitzelhaus restaurant in Harbourville. We all had Wiener schnitzel with spatzle and I also added a little German potato sale on my plate. The rest of group also each indulged in a glass of WeissBier. I was driving and settled for something nonalcoholic. Dessert consisted of Apfel streudel with whip cream. The setting in the ever so tiny hamlet of Harbourville was very quaint but the meal was top notch. The owner and her mother seem to run a great restaurant and they also have rental cabins for overnight stays. There are lots of great reviews on TripAdvisor. We are hoping to get back once more before we head back to Ontario so we can try their fish and chips. The above iPhone shot is not the clearest unfortunately but shows the small harbour which is right next to the restaurant. I believe the two houses in the distance are rental units.

Looks like we'll be on the road to Fredericton on Saturday. Hoping to pop in and see some friends there before continuing our trip back to Waterloo.
