Last Sunday our town hosted a party. The party was to thank the many volunteers who gave their time, money and efforts to assist during the flood. The flood happened here in Perth-Andover, NB in March of 2012, and some are still recovering. Most of the clean up has been done, but there are people who are having their homes moved out of the flood zone now and and other changes are happening. There were so many who helped out this little town, and I suppose the town government just decided it was time to give back, or at least recognize them. We went to the celebration after church, where the festivities were just getting started, and mostly enjoyed checking the antique cars, and also the music of Acoustic Train. They're pretty great, and if you ever get a chance to hear them play, check them out.
 
 
The Northern Maine Fair in Presque Isle, ME to be more exact. It was a wet day, but there were some moments of sunshine. I think everyone had fun.
The kids going on their last ride of the day before the rain started pouring, and we went off to supper at Pizza Hut and to the movies to see The Smurfs 2. It was a fantastic day!
 
 
One day last month I decided to go up to Grand Falls early to go check out the Market, and the Falls. Sadly, there was not a lot of water coming through the dam, so it was slightly less spectacular, but it's still just a beautiful spot.

The Market

The market is not bad. There is definitely much more happening than there is in my small little town, but still, there's not a whole lot. We find ourselves missing the bigger markets, like what exists in Moncton and Dieppe, or even KOREA! But, still, for a small city, this market isn't bad, really.
Yes, chocolate..... that melted in my purse on such a warm day. Duh... Bad purchase idea!

The Zip Line

That's right. There's a zip line over the base of the falls. I'm about 99% certain that it's not something that I'd ever do, but there sure are a lot of people who enjoy it.
I love the falls!! The sound of the water is just so relaxing. It is beautiful and frightening all at the same time.
It's a beautiful spot, and if you're in the area, you should stop and check it out. You can find more information here.
