More Corner Brook

So, first off, I realized last week that it's actually Corner Brook, not Cornerbrook.  That was a very longstanding misconception of mine.  All is well now though...

So I went for a long Sunday drive today.  Ok, so it's Monday, but you know what I mean:  a relaxed, ambling drive, going lower than the speed limit, the locals on your tail and rolling their eyes...  I was on the lookout for more great scenery and it was not hard to find.

The above photo was taken on a bridge that takes you from Corner Brook to the other side of the inlet/bay that Corner Brook perches on.  Continuing along that route, I got a great view of some of the larger mountains in the area.  Looks like we have snow afterall!

I also came across the railway museum in my ambling.  Having grown up in PEI, I think I am even less familiar with trains than most people my age.  Anything I know about trains comes from one Gordon Lightfoot song or another.  Well, these machines are huge.  They really capture the imagination.  Not hard to see why train travel has such a romanticism about it.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving, wherever you may be.
