Newfoundland

Been home over a week now, and things are back to routine. Today I finally found the contents of my wallet I had 'hidden' ... oops. Did too good a job.

Newfoundland.

All the descriptors you hear are true: it's a wild and rugged place, but so full of colour and so peaceful, including the people who were some of the kindest, friendliest I've ever met. The food was delicious and I gained 5 pounds, even with all the hikes we did. Two weeks was not enough time; I'd love to go back.

Not sure how to go about posting photos from the trip -- so many. Andi, how do you do it?! And every time I go into the catalogue, I find new favourites.

Here are some that stood out today. Not in any particular order, other than colour I guess.

New neighbours?

robin-nest

Discovered a robin's nest near the front entryway. Not sure they'll be staying -- I think there's too much traffic, plus we just replaced the lightbulb in the driveway lamp.

They're still around the front, and vocal too. But, haven't seen any activity in the nest itself.

bird-bath

Still see them bathing every day though (bird bath is in the back garden). Side note: never realized how often birds bathe!

Like the morning glories, we had some blues and pinks/purples in the clouds this week.
