The Acadian historical village (part 1)

I loved this :).

D & I spent a Sunday afternoon at this marvelous park. The park represents a traditional Acadian village with real(the structures were saved and rebuilt) homes, farms and shops. There are also different animations including with people in the traditional costumes. We hit the last opening day of the season and were fortunate to have had a peek into this marvelous village.

This village was founded in 1965 and is located in the Caraquet region.

Just a few images while I sort through the other park photos:


Mellow barn.

The Doucet farm( 1860). A real farmhouse. The buildings are named after the families who lived in them.

The blue trim just popped next to those bright red apples.


Celebrating the harvest months.

  1. Oh, what a bit of luck on the timing! And what fun to wander through with or without a camera. How could you not adore that barn shot?! And the last photo is a keeper for sure–punkins will do that! LOL

    1. Hi Mel,
      I am one that believes in being grateful for things and yes, we were grateful to have not missed this.The barns here were very photogenic, peeping through with cute windows and gentle colored foliage. And yes, punkins are always fun. Cheeese!

  2. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous photos, Barb!!!!!

    I ADORE the ones of the barn because you can FEEL the history within them! Love the mellow barn!

    Ooooo….and the pumpkins in that last shot are truly wonderful.

    This whole series of photos has such beautiful texture and soft lighting.

    Well done, my friend. WELL done!

    X to you and D!

    1. Hi Ronnie,
      Thank you too for your kind words.
      The barns seem to have success. I am sure that the soft light of the partly rainy afternoon was in it for a lot. Soft light(e.g. a cloudy day) brings out a lot of character and emotion). Wedding pictures use a lot this softer light; it looks more dreamy and romantic. And when a day is sunny, one can even use filters to create a softer feeling.

      Many Thanks, buddy! xo

  3. Just catching up on your trip and what a lot of interesting & scenic places you visited! i really like the harvest shot in this post – it’s very good & would easily transfer into a postcard/greetings card – and it would be one I’d pick out if I was browsing!

  4. Bonjour Joyce,
    It is nice to see you. You will be finding more of the Acadian village in the coming days. We just loved this village!
    Thank you for your kind words. That Autumn setting “jumped out” to me and I braved the passing visitors to get a quiet moment to shoot. Patience is a key to photography!
    Come back soon and see more of the village!

  5. Hi Zhu,
    This is well worth an afternoon or entire day stay if you make it to NB. Go in the summer; a lot of the houses close in off-season. But, the ambiance is still nice.
