The wind here blows salty sea breath into your face as the summer sun reminds the hardy few who find their home in this lonely outpost
that life is prosperous and full.
Life is, indeed, prosperous and full, and the Bay of St. Laurence essence, made at sunrise on the tip of Nova Scotia & the very end of the St. Lawrence Seaway, encourages you to take the bounty of the present and preserve it for your future. The essence reminds you to do your work, to make hay while the sun shines, to provide for colder days ahead. As balmy and beautiful as this bay appears this morning, the few residents living here drink in this solstice gift to hold them through the dark, windy winter by the sea ahead.
The Bay of St. Lawrence essence supports a natural feeling that propels you to settle down, come in, hug close to the fire, gather up supplies, save your money and bring your family together in your cozy nest.

He is said to have the presented to the Roman authorities the poor, the crippled, the blind and the suffering as the true treasures of the Church.
