#DiscoverNBBeaches – McLeod’s Beach

When travelling from Saint John to St Martin's on Route 111, why not venture along the coast via Route 825 and visit a few beaches along the way? McLeod's Beach is the first of 3 beaches you will come across. 

McLeod's Beach, Reed's Beach and Gardner Creek Beach are all on NB Route 825. 

There is no parking, so we pulled off along the side of the road, there are a few spots with a little shoulder. When the tide is out,

Reeds Beach

#DiscoverNBBeaches – Reeds Beach

As you can tell, based on our previous beach adventures, we have been visiting some beaches on some windy and cooler days. To be fair, often it is much warmer and even sunny inland, but when you head towards the Fundy Coast, you never know what's in store. When heading out on any road trip, and especially a beach trip, always dress in layers and pack a sweatshirt!

Do you make your own seasoning mixes from scratch? If you think about how much pre made mixes are costing you, you may reconsider, and make your own. You can put together the following seasoning mixes in bulk and store in Mason jars, or spice tins.

#DiscoverNBBeaches – Gardner Creek Beach

We are enjoying our summer and setting out each week, or so to #discoverNBbeaches to share with you. We hope you are enjoying this series, and would love any suggestions on beaches to visit!
A recent outing, on a cool and breezy Spring day, led us to explore Gardner Creek Beach on route 825, NB. It is located along the Fundy coast between Saint John and St. Martin's, about 1.5 hours drive from Moncton, 30 minutes from Saint John, and about 15 minutes from St. Martin's.

Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade Granola Bars

These homemade granola bars are my all time favourite snack on the go. They combine oats and rice crispy cereal for the base, and the honey, maple syrup and chocolate chips make then chewy and sweet!

These are a no bake granola bar that can be made up quickly in the evenings for the next day's treat! Check links below this recipe, for other recipes for homemade granola bars.

#DiscoverNBBeaches – Irving Nature Park

In 2017, we ( the boys and I) spent our summer in Quispamsis, caring for my mom after her stroke. Exploring beaches was one of the things we did to get away from the hospital and get the boys outside. We went to the Irving Nature Park a few times over the summer, and here are some of our photos and the details on the park.
