Shadow Lawn for the 45th

March 25th, 2022, marked the 45th anniversary of our first date (1977 – Mount Allison – movie King Kong). Our wonderful children, Sarah and Ryan, gave us as a Christmas gift this year; a one-night stay and dine package at the renowned Rothesay Shadow Lawn Inn. This included the master suite, a welcome bottle of prosecco and a 5-course meal called the “Flavours of New Brunswick”.

This 150 year old historical beauty was built in 1870 by James Robertson, partner in the MRA department store in Saint John. Today, its original grandeur is preserved as a 4.5 star inn and restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and raised a glass to 45 years of dating.

Love the photos and the commentary, Nelson. Brought back lots of memories. My 1st year teaching was in Rothesay; loved going into the city to the MRA store – it was a classic as was Birks. Also, often came and went from/to Petitcodiac through the train station. Congrats on 45 years and on making it a special event. The photos are lovely ❤️
