On the Way Home

I gave a talk to some colleagues last Monday. As Josephine and I made our way back home the next day I took a few pictures at Shoal Hr. and Clarenville.

  1. Thanks for yet another photographic introduction to your beautiful part of the world. I especially like the second of the geese. You have what looks to be the same amount of snow on the ground but somehow you look colder! At least the water looks pretty darn frigid. Thanks again for taking the time to post the images. D

    • I would say there were about 50-75 geese in total swimming around the brackish water near the head of the harbour. I wasn’t able to get close enough for a good shot. Funny about the weather here–very variable. Around -2 that day and the next but yesterday it climbed to +11 before falling back to -2 last night. Back to +2 now. Up-down, etc!

  2. I thought ‘that looks cold’ as I looked at the first two pix, and then the snow arrived!! Brrrrrrr

    I like the last one, the water looks so tranquil.

    • It’s all relative! One of the pictures near the middle shows a store called “The Barn Loft”. It’s loaded with nick-nacks, generally of a seasonal nature. Josephine loves the place and can spend far more time there than I can. After a short browse, a nice walk in the chilly air seemed heavenly by comparison 🙂

    Things look chilly there – methinks it’s on its way here sometime soon. I love the architecture – we have nothing like it here.

  4. Wow Maurice I love the photo, you must a have a beautiful white christmas, which we Aussies are envious of as I spent my childhood watching American TV shows and hoped we would have a white christmas like them one day. Thanks for sharing your world.

    Looks like winter! We’re just starting to get (real) cold here – can’t wait to see snow! Enjoy!
