Canada 2008, day 1
... where day 0 was the end of the day we landed.

We've been settling in, but we also got a lot done yesterday. We got our marriage license, which was a bit fraught but turned out ok. We bought a bunch of stuff for the wedding and reception, and we arranged to meet the Pastor who is performing the service.

In the course of that, we took a stroll through Miramichi. I've been here before, but I thought it was a good chance to share some of Canada with you.

Brian and Jennifer's house:



Brian and Jennifer's garden:



Jennifer's sister, Mary's house, opposite Brian and Jen's house:


The famous "Black Horse Tavern". I still haven't dared to venture inside:


Ritchie Wharf is a cute little children's play area/historical information site. It just happens to be right behind the house:




There's a reason why this area of Canada is called "The Maritimes":



The play area has a water feature, which turns on when you touch a post. It's pretty cool:


It's a ship!


Oh wait, it's a trick:


A little amphitheater:



The Miramichi River. It's HUGE:



There's an awesome ice-cream shop in among the restaurants and cafes of Ritchie Wharf. We restrained ourselves yesterday, but we'll be back:



Current Location: Miramichi

Come to my part of Canada if you want sun and warmth. Fort Chip has been in a drought-hole all summer. :P Fort McMurray to the south and Fort Smith to the north have been getting plenty of rain. But not us...
