New Carlisle Beach

My daughter Suzanne came to visit me this week.
The weather was awful.
Rain and freezing cold.
Temperatures near 0 deg. C.
or 32 deg. F.
Between the rains one day, 
we dressed in winter clothes and 
went for a walk on a nearby beach, 
 New Carlisle Beach.
Me and Suzanne

Here are some photos.
(taken in cloudy conditions)

Below,  is the "Green"
It has a canteen, play park for children,
Canada Day celebrations are held here
along with many other events.


Below: There is a camp ground nearby, beyond this sidewalk to the left.
New Carlisle has a very long boardwalk......
That goes for miles and miles



With many twists and turns

Passing through a marshland...  into a bird sanctuary.




A peaceful walk in the fresh salty air.


***********
There used to be a harbour here many years ago.


The cliff under the lighthouse below has been damage by

heavy storms from last fall.  Spring thaw and heavy rains 

also cause a lot of erosion to the GaspĂ© Peninsula. 

Apparently with "Climate Change" the oceans are rising,

getting larger and we are losing more land.


For more photos I took at high tide in the Fall of New Carlisle Beach, click here.

Something to do on a rainy day.
Suzanne repainted this birdhouse for me.



Also the little lighthouses I put in my flower garden.
The other houses came from the Dollarstore
She painted for her garden.


It is lobster season here.
We enjoyed a lobster supper together.
Served with garlic butter and coleslaw.

This lobster below is a little over  1.5 pounds. 
Lobsters are sold cooked or uncooked 
at the Fish Markets here.
Prices ranging from $8.50 to 10.50 per pound cooked.

To cook lobsters, the live lobster is place in 
a large pot of boiling salted water
 and boiled for 15 to 20 mins.
