These photo’s were taken this summer at the Acadian Village in Bertrand, New Brunswick. The village is located on the Acadian Peninsula at the mouth of the Caraquet River. The village is an historical reconstruction that portrays the way of life of Acadians in the 1700’s. Everything in the village is handmade using only the tools available to Acadians during this time. The food is fresh and the smell of fresh bread always in the air.
As an Acadian I feel recharged and nostalgic every time I enter the village. I can’t help but to envy the simplistic way of life the Acadians made for themselves; this of course before we were deported … but we wont get into that today.
