sunday afternoon

this is turning out to be a pretty amazing fall. this past weekend we headed to a place called glenwood in search of bike trails and blueberries...

 we found horses

 a long bridge made for ATVs

and we found partridgeberries. they look and taste like cranberries. only found in newfoundland. soo good

sunday's berries

more icebergs

 a few more pics of icebergs. the locals love the huge ones, but i love the tiny ones too...

 bits of them wash up on shore. this is the coolest little cove, shielded from the wind. we collected bits of iceberg and put them in our water bottles. love the idea of drinking freshly melted icebergs
contemplating jumping on this little iceberg. common sense won.

sandy puddle

 an afternoon at Sandy Pond...

 it has a really cool boardwalk, places to cook food, and warm water
 the water is never deeper than your waist. almost like a giant puddle
this place goes in my top 5 swimming spots of NL

found items

i love, love, love looking for beach glass. i wasn't expecting to get to do much here, but i was totally wrong. i have found so much. these are a few bones, etc that i found while in twillingate the other day. i think that is a pelvic bone? everything i learned from vertebrate zoology and mammalogy is totally gone, so i have no idea what type of animal that may have come from. pretty cool though

white sand

 this is probably the best beach i have ever been to. the water is super chilly though
 the sand is perfect
 our setup for an afternoon hanging out at musgrave harbour. we were the only ones on the beach.
 this would be a sweet place to get wedding photos
just love it. we came home with lots of cool bits of driftwood.

we were told by a coworker that the blueberries of newfoundland have the most antioxidants of any blueberries. the coworker also told us that you can pull over anywhere and find wild blueberries. i had my doubts, but the other day we pulled onto a side road with a few tupperware containers, and found tons of blueberries. so excited to make muffins with these berries. i just want to go back and fill my freezer with these. they are so sweet and tasty.

jonathan's pond

we definitely love being near water. jon was training for a few triathlons this summer, so we spent a lot of time searching for cool swimming spots. one of the best was jonathan's pond near our little town. the water was pretty warm and there was never too many people swimming there.

terra nova

 the hiking at terra nova park is so awesome
there are actually really sweet beaches in NL. and i think this was one of the hottest days of the year here
we are pretty lucky to live somewhere like this

 when we visited st. john's recently, i loved signal hill
 and the graffiti

st. john's is where we go to get a few of our favourite things that you can't get in our little town, like sushi. looking forward to heading there again tonight.

beautiful beach

the rewards of a hike to gander lake. there is nothing better than laying in the sun listening to the waves, even if it is 12 degrees

we got to see some amazing pieces of ice all the way from greenland.
 see the stripes where it is melting in a pattern? so cool
 this one broke in half in front of us. super loud
 it was an amazing afternoon in crow's head
