We might not have the greatest weather in Newfoundland, but we do have some of the loveliest views.

I can’t seem to get enough of our local brand of vitamin Sea.

I have a treasure trove of pics from our visit to the town of Bonavista.
This one is perfect for the theme of half sea and half sky.

Of course, this post would not be complete without a view from our own backyard.

Let your soul and spirit fly.”

Do you find the sea and sky as naturally therapeutic as I do?
