Little peek of Newfoundland’s scenery

This was taken on King’s Road, in St. John’s. The same street as Moo Moo’s ice cream, for the not-so-locals ;)

Another photo of the same street, different angle.The houses in Newfoundland have always been very colorful. Some of them are completely outrageous colors. Purple houses with lime green trim and a yellow door. The colorful homes have been nick named “Jelly Bean houses”.

Local artists have done paintings showcasing the bright homes. It’s great.

Newfoundland doors. Again, King’s Road.

Cummings Street, St. John’s.

prescot street, St. John'sPrescot Street. You need one foot on the brake and one on the gas when at a stop-light on this street. Seriously lol.

My neighbor was drying some salted cod fish on their clothes line while I was home!

Beautiful St. John’s. That’s me and Alfie right there :)

Bought some treats at the Tilt House Bakery, in Portgual Cove. The person who opened this bakery was the old Auntie Crae’s baker, which shut down a few years ago!

Typical Newfoundland weather RDF/Rain Drizzle ‘n Fog.

Newfoundland is also very windy….

Our sweet pup, Alfie in the Battery! Yes, we brought him along. He got along quite well this trip. Wasn’t so much of a lunatic as he was last year. Getting calmer in his old age ;) He’ll be three next week!

Hope you all enjoyed a little bit of my homeland!

St. John’s, my home.

My Mom sent me this YouTube video not too long ago of St. Johns, Newfoundland. My hometown, my neighborhood. She sure does know how to make a girl homesick.

If you’d like to know what the beautiful scenery looks like around back home you should watch this video. :) The music is a typical kind of song you’d hear downtown at the bars. Of course there are other bars that play popular music. But this is Newfie music you’d have a dance to. I love it.

Whenever I call home whether it be to my parents house, or my Brother/S-I-L’s place. They always ask me when I’m coming home next. I haven’t been home at all during the summer for quite a few years. Perhaps I’ll make the trip come Labour Day. We’ll see…we’ll see.
