Arabella - - SUMMER HARVEST - Www.ara­bel­lade­sign.com "To­day I awoke to the light ocean breeze com­ing through my win­dow and the sound of seag­ulls caw­ing in the dis­tance. It’s a Thurs­day so I got my­self ready and headed out down the

It’s sum­mer­time!

Here in St. An­drews, many of our sea­sonal res­i­dents have re­turned from their win­ter respite in Florida and the town has taken on a dif­fer­ent energy as ev­ery­one catches up and re­con­nects. Arts, cul­ture, na­ture and our ex­cep­tional Al­go­nquin golf course all play im­por­tant roles in re­vi­tal­iz­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of the town and greet­ing our many visi­tors. As Canada’s first sea­side re­sort, St. An­drews is one of New Brunswick’s old­est and most dis­tinc­tive set­tle­ments, of­fer­ing a unique ex­pe­ri­ence to those of us for­tu­nate enough to re­side here and the many tourists we welcome through­out the year. I was think­ing of ways to de­scribe liv­ing here, when I came across a re­cent blog post by Katy Mac­don­ald of St. An­drews which I think is well worth shar­ing: Katy Mac­don­ald as pub­lished in www.reefto­cove.com. From this won­der­ful part of Canada, De­bra and I have been for­tu­nate to be em­braced by the com­mu­nity. And we look for­ward to re­turn­ing the favour for many years to come.

Welcome to Ara­bella Sum­mer Harvest 2015

In our sum­mer edi­tion of ARA­BELLA, we of­fer you a unique read­ing ex­pe­ri­ence rep­re­sen­ta­tive of this glo­ri­ous sea­son. We be­lieve the cover paint­ing by Don Li cap­tures the true spirit of sum­mer. As you turn the pages, im­merse your­self in the fra­grant flower blos­soms of Brian Davis, one of the best flo­ral artists in the world; or dream of spend­ing a day at the beach – Cal­i­for­nia style – as we ex­plore the sunny Mal­ibu home of Canada’s lead­ing ar­chi­tect, Richard Landry. Fur­ther afield, you’ll be inspired with a vis­ual walk through some breath­tak­ing Ital­ian gar­dens that are not open to the public and in this is­sue are for your eyes only. Ex­plore life from the mag­i­cal per­spec­tive of fine art pho­tog­ra­pher Ys­abel Lemay, as she shows you a rar­i­fied glimpse into the world of na­ture and dis­cover what hap­pens when fa­mous mu­si­cian Danny Mcbride takes up a paint­brush rather than a guitar – the re­sults will amaze you. This is just a small taste of our ARA­BELLA sum­mer menu. Many more sen­sory treats await your view­ing plea­sure.
