Thursday was spent with the Miramichi rug Hookers. Our guild was invited down to Bonar Law Common, in Rexton, NB. There was 13 of us in total, 4 cars we taken as we convoyed to Rexton. It was lunch time when we arrived so we stopped by a restaurant for lunch. It was very nice & the view was that of the harbour. Marg, the organizer to the guild, had the best looking cheeseburger deluxe that any of us had ever seen. She was speechless & if you know Marg, that speaks volumes! LOLMarg with her cheeseburger, it was a two hander - she ate it top with meat patty, then bottom with meat patty! We all ate away from our diet rituals that afternoon. I had fish & chips, it too was very good. I had fish & chips the night before too as Jean & Theodore treated to supper in the Baie. I love fish & chips out east & eat them when I can.
Then it was off to Bonar Law's homestead for an afternoon of hooking in the kitchen with other hookers from the area.
The baby walker, which is extinct today was on display. It brought back memories of the days when my babies were placed inside the plastic ones in the 70's & would happily play as I did cooking or did the housework. Then the Jolly Jumper was the place to 'put them' as them would bounce & swing as I got things done.
Back to the house tour...
The tea box in the back corner was locked as tea was expensive in the mid 1800's.
Oh yes there's also an amphitheater! & many more outdoor activities to do on the ground. A trip well worth taking in. I hope to take Don & family to this area for a picnic, next month.
These beautiful wild flowers graced the servers table, the people at the Bonar's Law House thought of everything to make our visit a pleasant one.
I hope you enjoyed your trip with me too!
But wait that day is not done yet.... Next blog!
Marg, the coordinator of this trip attempts to eat a wonderfully cooked & presented hamburger deluxe! We all threw the dieting out the window that day! I had haddock fish & chips, yum! I had had the same for supper the night before when Jean & Theodore took me out for supper. I love fish & chips when I'm out east, I could eat them everyday.
First a look at the museum on the grounds.
