For one weekend every fall six friends get together on the edge of the beautiful Bay of Fundy. When I say "the edge" I mean that literally ..... the cottage we stay in actually looks out over a cliff with a 60 foot drop to the rugged coast below. We spend the weekend relaxing, sipping wine, solving world problems and hiking in Fundy National Park.

This year we chose to hike to Laverty Falls and we were not disappointed. The wooded trail was a good workout that ended with the opportunity to cool our feet and take some pics. Thank goodness we brought along our group photographer .... have selfie stick, will travel (now if we could just get one for a tablet!)
After a hard day on the trail we were rewarded some entertainment at the Molly Kool kitchen party. Molly Kool was the first female sea captain in North America and she hailed from little old Alma New Brunswick!
I took a little video of the entertainment at the kitchen party provided by two very talented children!
In the town of Alma (where we stayed) a church on the main drag was being renovated and about to become a center for fresh brewed coffee and craft beer. We poked our heads inside to check it out and wish them well with the new business.
Later we talked about the beauty of the area and how it could be developed more to attract tourists and help boost our poor economy (more businesses like the church above). Good for business maybe, but not so good for us ...... more tourists would mean that we would be less likely to have a whole beach to ourselves like Diane and Cathy in the pic below!
