For Sepia Saturday, February 28, 2015

These people were marching to save the Air Base in Chatham, NB.  The base employed some civilians, plus it was a boost to the economy of the Miramichi.  This march took place in July, 1982.  This was also on the day that Gilles Villeneuve died in a crash in the Grand Prix race.  I found this photo on the site Our Miramichi Heritage Photos.  We are having a big Gathering this summer to celebrate our heritage, expecting thousands to attend, locals and those that used to be locals will all be there!  You can take the person out of the Miramichi, but you can't take the Miramichi out of the person!!!


For further demonstration, or people in a gathering, go to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  I looked around and found this couple kissing (from the Our Miramichi Heritage Photos) and found it rather cool as it seems to be triple exposed!


Then I went searching in my albums for something red for Valentine's Day.  I came across me in a red dress, (1988).


This is my little "sweetheart" grand daughter, Katie Rose with a red flower in her hair.
 Of course, I had to include The Red Shoes, I started the dance at the Moulin Rouge in Paris with this shoes on in October, 2012!  A young lad from the South of USA and I started the dance and then the floor filled up with dancers, I guess they were just waiting for someone to start!!!!

I will finish off with a red rose from the garden after a rain last August.

Well, that's all I could come up with, a couple kissing, a red dress, a red flower in my Katie Rose's hair, shoes that started the dance at Moulin Rouge in Paris (with a handsome lad) and a red rose with a bud.

Seawind Jewelley shop in Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada.

When I saw this week's prompt in SepiaSaturday, I thought about the visit to Grand Manan Island, a small island south of New Brunswick, Canada.

I stopped off at a little shop called Seawind that was surrounded by a lovely and thriving garden, I was able to converse with the lady who made beautiful jewellery in this little shop.

Hope you like the pictures as  much as I enjoyed visiting that little country shop that overlooked the hundreds of blooms in the garden, how good is that.





 Even a dragonfly was enjoying her working, it stuck around long enough for me to take a couple of photos.

Have a great weekend, may you be enjoying your season whatever it may be at this time of the year, here, it is Winter, and we have plenty of snow to prove it this year!!!!

Christmas Day, 2014 in Miramichi, New Brunswick, Canada

We here in Miramichi are usually used to snow storms around Christmas Day, but we got rain and foggy weather, with the sun coming out just before sunset.  We are so blessed here in Miramichi.  Thought I would share some pictures with you.

Two for the price of one


I found this picture of two little cowboys and their red wagons---the McLean brothers back in the 40's or 50's.  It is as close as I can get to the theme of this week's SepiaSaturday.  I got the picture from Our Miramichi Heritage Photos site.  The reason I know those wagons were red, my brother had one just like it. Why don't you saunter on down to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com for more darling pictures.

Bridge over Miramichi River, Sepia Saturday, April 5, 2014

I don't envy people with dangerous jobs.  I don't even know how they can do the things they do.  But, without them, a lot of wonderful buildings, bridges, etc. would not be done.  Here are some pictures of men who helped build the Centennial Bridge in Douglastown/Miramichi in 1966-1967. It took a special breed of men, some even lost their lives in this construction.












The final results, The Centennial Bridge.  Hats off to the courageous men who build it!!
