In the company of friends by the sea

This past Thursday, May 28th, was my friend Marilyn's 60th birthday so I traveled to Beresford, New Brunswick to join in the celebration.  The birthday cake was a delicious Cherry Cake made by Marilyn's sister Roseanne.

Here's a quick tour of some of the nature moments of the week.

American Goldfinches at Marilyn and Paul's feeder - two males and one female.

A male Rose-breasted Grosbeak.

Marilyn and Paul also have two hummingbird feeders and this male Ruby-throated Hummingbird was a frequent visitor.

Isn't he cute?

A warm windy day at Beresford Beach.


Rhododendrons and bee outside Danny's Restaurant and Conference Centre.

Foggy evening looking north at the beach.

Sunset over the lagoon.

Rowing practice.

It was a great visit and vacation.  

Thanks for everything, Marilyn and Paul!


  1. Very lovely photos. So happy you could share my 60th celebrations with me. xo

  2. It looks a truly magical week. Thank you for sharing the joy.

  3. You capture those beautiful birds so well. They are beautiful. I really like the windy day and foggy eve beach scenes. The last one is amazing. I think the rowing girls would really like to see that shot. Is there a way you can get it to them?

  4. Such lovely photos, we don't get to see such beautiful birds here in the UK, wonderful shots!
