Island Home in the Saint John River near the Bay of Fundy

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionI live on a mostly wooded island in the Wolastoq/Saint John River on the outskirts of the historical Saint John in beautiful New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy. I'm just a short walk away from a sandy beach, where I swim every day from June to September.

    There are countless trails here, a lighthouse, deer, fireflies, blue herons, eagles, porcupines and other wildlife at my doorstep, but I'm also not too far from the historical City of Saint John.

    I own rental properties, which are rented out to longer term tenants and also as airbnb and I'm looking for help with general household maintenance that would involve things like cleaning, some yard-work, small simple repairs or painting in the rental properties as well as in my own home.

    I'm also a backyard beekeeper and an avid sourdough bread baker, so if you're interested in exploring the world of bread making and/or that of honey-bees, I'd be(e) :) happy to share what I know.
