Barbour Tickle

Summer here in Newfoundland and Labrador is gradually drawing to a close.

It was a lovely one – and still is – and now, Environment Canada is predicting a warmer than usual fall. I’ll take it! I’d already been dreaming of a sunny September so that is more than welcome news. We are in the process of painting our house, so good weather is gladly received for that as well.

Today I’m sharing pics I took in July of Barbour Tickle here in Newtown. Along the tickle lies Barbour Living Heritage Village, which has been offering a taste of history to tourists since 1991. From the NL Tourism site:

“Venture along the coastal loop to Newtown, known as the Venice of Newfoundland to explore with local guides and experience life in the outport. Tour the active village by day, dine at the Olde Shoppe Restaurant, enjoy an evening of live music or theatre…Visit the Barbour Living Heritage Village today for a Newfoundland outport experience.”

Tours and events are wrapping up for the season very soon, so if you’re planning a visit, better make it this weekend!
