Why I'm not minding today's weather

It is a pretty grim day out there.

But I'm not minding it, because yesterday - thanks to Anna - I had my fill of beautiful weather and the outdoors. Blueberry picking!

The taste of the first blueberry sent me back to the early '90s. In a meadow somewhere in Eastern PEI with my siblings not far away. With a half-empty Country Crock tub in one hand, and a tongue stained blue.

But back to yesterday. The view was amazing, as is typical of the Newfoundland coast.

A nice cool breeze was blowing in off the North Atlantic, eventually necessitating long sleeves in spite of the mid-August sun. The hillside was very zen.

Now I'm looking forward to baking with the berries this week. Baking on a rainy day, perhaps?

Love your Newfoundland blog. While you are on the west coast of the island, make sure you do some of the following:
*Hike Gros Morne mountain - take at least 3 L of water per person.
*Green Gardens in Gros Morne Park is really beautiful as well.
*Marble Mountain Zip Lining
*Western Brook Gorge Boat Tour
*Visit Blow Me Down area - there is a beautiful trail there that leads to a fantasic swimming spot - even though you won't be able to swim, it's amazing to see how clear and beautiful the water is. I heard there is also a nature hot springs in the mountains somewhere in that area ( haven't found it).
