OH CANADA!

I decided to continue on with a Canada theme and show you all my hometown.  Our drive starts downtown at the Doctor's office lol Here a picture of my son. 


As we leave the Dr.'s office the 1st building you see id Jean Coutu which is a Canadian pharmacy.
 We come to an intersection next and to the left is the grocery store Price Choppers.  We often buy our meat there because the prices are a little better then the other groceries in town.  We have 3 big grocery stores and 1 small mom and pop 1.  The 3 big ones are Atlantic Superstore, Sobeys and Price Choppers and the small one is called Theriault's grocery.
 Next through our little city is the New Brunswick liquor store and my favorite coffee franchise Tim Horton's. The building next to that is The Canadian Legion and war museum.  The museum is truly worth seeing. On the opposite side is a the major hangout place LOL McDonalds lol
 Now we've reached the bridge that goes across the Basin which is beautiful year round.  Once across the bridge, right downtown Main street is a little Village for tourism, it includes a restaurant, boutiques, ice cream parlor and a Huge gazebo in the middle.  The city often has bands or some other entertainment there all summer long.
 This is another picture of downtown, just off Main Street.  It's quite quaint.  Next is a picture of our City Hall which also houses Our city police.









 This is the High School I graduated from in 1997.  It was an OK school but I'd never wish to go back and do it again lol
 This is the bridge we cross on our way home.  As you can see the scenery is gorgeous but at the end on one side it's not so pretty.  Our Wood mill was closed down and sold, now everything has been knocked down and is being recycled.  It looks more like a dump then anything.  I look forward to the eye-sore being gone.  
After getting off the bridge we stopped at my favorite place lol
TIM HORTONS drive thru lol
I even took a picture of the Menu to share with you all lol

This is when my camera batteries died lol
We were less then 5 minutes from home so I guess it's ok.  I hope you enjoyed your journey through my city.  I love my Hometown.  Here are a few Facts about my little city.

I look forward to all the comments and I hope you'll leave one for me :D
HAPPY CANADA DAY TO ALL!!!
