Dragonflies Lane is situated along a beautiful Canadian Heritage River. Our home was built by Tony - Log Home, and some of the design by Madeleine. We often observe beautiful wildlife and have much respect for it.
We are 1 1/2 hr from two major airports: Saint John and Fredericton. We live about 35 minutes from the Ocean in beautiful Saint Andrews! The closest town is about 13 minutes from our home (Chocolate Town !). We have kayaks, canoes, 2 bikes and enjoy country living and nature photography.
We eat half vegetarian and non-vegetarian. We eat fresh and healthy. We get up early in am (Madeleine gets up before Sunrise as part of her traditions) (Tony may be up or not before her). Hmm, sometimes we sleep in on rainy days :) Our home is smoke free.
We love to laugh, read, paint, listen to music, explore the Land, visit the Ocean and have potlucks with our young farmer friends. We have an electric piano, and few other instruments for Tony, and Madeleine has her Native drums.
We welcome you here ! :)
Madeleine and Tony
