Stairway to.......

On a recent trip to Newfoundland, I spent a very pleasant while at this shoreline in Cox's Cove, Bay of Islands. It was so good to be back home again! I love this area, and on this day, the temperature was +30 C and the warm ocean breeze, and gentle sound of the waves laping on the shore took me back to when I was just a lad, and we would take these little jaunts to enjoy the little private nooks and crannies of the bay. As the commercials on TV say, it really is as far away from Disneyland as you can get. Thank God these little hideaways still exist, and it is worth every penny spent to get to them. It was sooooo difficult to climb back up those stairs again.......

My grandfather, Laurie Stone, lived in this area. You sound very happy to be back home.
I returned to Deep River, ON, my home, after traveling many years.

Hi Nonie,
Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments are appreciated. I did not reply sooner as I was moving to Windsor, Ont.. I thought I was retiring in NFLD, but things did not work out that way for me. The Bay of Islands is a wonderful area, and where I grew up. As they say, "I belongs to 'er". Dave

Very nice picture. I agree, there are so many gems in this province. While I love to get to places like this, and snap away, and feel like showing the world what we have here, the thought of peaceful, pretty places potentially being spoiled of it's beauty, lingers as well. Interesting place though.
