Christmas and New Year

Believe it or not, Becky and I are at opposite ends of the continent. She is spending the holidays in Arizona with her Dad. I am in the north east in Newfoundland.

I have two weeks vacation from bus driving and two weeks away from Becky. I spent a few days in and around Mississauga, and then flew out to St. John’s.

I came out here a year and a half ago and loved it. I jumped at the chance to go back again. It’s such a beautiful place full of friendly people.

I spent about nine hours walking today. I went up signal hill, which you can see in the photos above, then I went to the art gallery and museum, which is the three Christmas trees, and then I walked around Quidi Vidi Lake. It was snowing and the sun was setting. Beautiful!

I am looking forward to seeing Becky’s pictures when she gets back home. I’m sure we will have lots of stories to share. Until then, I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!

  3. Hello, hello …

    My desire to visit and spend time in St. John’s builds with these photos. I live in an area of Alberta where many people from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador have made their home. Since watching Annie Proulx’s ‘The Shipping News’ and the story of the Coyle house, my desire to be among the people and the landscape has been growing. Thank you. Take care … šŸ˜‰
