A sharing of my heart and my home from a Christian perspective

...with a wee bit of whimsy added.

New Brunswick in All Her Glory

I would like to share with you a few pictures of Hillsborough county, New Brunswick.
I was born in Albert county which is the neighboring county to Hillsborough and I still have a heart for the place from whence I came. My maternal grandmother grew up on Caledonia Mountain which is where some of these pictures were taken. My great grandparents spent their whole lives on the mountain and these pictures are so pretty that I thought I would share them with you. They are courtesy of my Uncle Allan who is up visiting from Oklahoma City.
Some are taken while driving down Turtle Creek Road while others are on Caledonia Mountain then on to the golf course in Hillsborough county.


The first two were taken at the site of the old homestead where the apple trees still stand nearby.
All is quiet there now but I can imagine the sound of my grandmother as a young girl skipping about in the orchard perhaps gathering apples to make apple pies.....
