Beulah Week!

Tabernacle at Beulah.

We've just gotten back from vacationing in New Brunswick. We only stayed 3 days, but we had lots of fun.

We went to a Wesleyan camp ground. Well it's not really a camp ground...well yes it is. Check it out for yourself. Beulah

This is the cafeteria. If you look behind the people you'll see some cars. The line for curly fries went from the split in the path to those cars! Crazy!

10 days in July is called Beulah Week. They bring in excellent speakers, evangelists etc... So twice a day for ten days we all congregate in the tabernacle and sing, praise the Lord and listen to the speakers. You leave there rejuvenated, relaxed and ready for what the world is going to throw at ya.

Our pastor and his wife, Cathy.

The grounds remind you of the movie Dirty Dancing...the relaxing atmosphere reminds you of Dirty Dancing. You almost expect to see Patrick Swayze walking up the path. lol Everyone is so happy, content, nice and smiling. It's the Christian version of The Stepford Wives, only genuine.

Dave and J. enjoying poutines after the evening service.

The last time we were there was several years ago. It was BG....before goats! Then we stayed for the entire 10 days, we also had a place to stay on the grounds. This year we had to stay in a hotel in Saint John...45 minutes away and rather expensive. 100$ a night thanks to instead of 260$, but two nights is enough. Plus the ferry to get there was 400$. It's getting ridiculous for Canadians to travel in their own country. It's actually cheaper for me to fly to England than it is for me to fly to Alberta. But that's a whole other post.

The beginning of Evening on the Boulevard.

On Wednesday nights in Beulah week is Evening on the Boulevard. People set up little tents and sell FOOD!! One other reason for Beulah week (besides worshiping the Lord) is to eat, eat and eat some more!! It's just a Wesleyan thing. We take the Bible verse about breaking bread and fellowshiping with your fellow Christian literally!


The last time we were there, Dave waited in line one and a half hours for curly fries! Not this year. After the evening service he only waited 10 minutes in line for beavertails!! Not a bad wait and worth every minute. They were good!! I love Evening on the Boulevard. It's a nice time for fellowshiping and eating with your fellow Christians. See we do take that verse to heart!

While we were in NB we visited Cindi Lou's home. I mean, now come on! You didn't think I could go on vacation and not visit goats! Alex, Cindi's former owner was really nice and informative. He had 49 goats there! Wow. J. got to visit with Lady Gaga. It's a goat.

Alex and one of his main dudes. FYI, that buck is on all four legs. He was huge!

But the vacation came to an end and we had to steam ahead. We got to the ferry terminal and we were greeted with fog! Oh well , the ferry has radars.

Our view of the ferry. It really was right there.

A happy, relaxed (kind of) family waiting for the ferry to go home.

Oh! another newsworthy item. While I was on vacation I got an email from Reader's Digest. I had sent in J.'s story about his head bump and they loved it! They're going to publish it.

Have a Blessed evening.
