A Step Back in Time: Scenes from Bonavista

 

A couple of weekends ago, my husband and I visited friends who had relocated to the town of Bonavista last year. It was a three and a half hour drive away, the weather was lovely and it was our first time seeing the beautiful and historic town, so of course I had my camera ready. It was extremely difficult to narrow down the photos to only these!

      1. thanks I’ve practising! Lard Tunderin’ Jesus and one of the funniest line I’ve heard from a Newfoundlander that drew the biggest belly laugh with tears streaming down my face was: “I’m so hungry I could eat the arse off a skunk!”

  2. What a picturesque and quaint town. Haven’t been since 500th Anniversary John Cabot Celebrations of ’97 (when the Queen visited!). Man oh man, it only grows more beautiful with time and distance!

    1. Most of my followers know that four hours away is still in Newfoundland for me, but I also added Newfoundland, Canada as tags, along with Bonavista of course, for those who wouldn’t know. Thanks for stopping by!
