photography: A Second Look At The Battery, St. John's, Newfoundland - 02/22/11 08:58 AM

 
Take a second look at the Battery in old St. John's, Newfoundland!

photography: Cape Spear Newfoundland-The Most Easterly Point In North America - 11/03/09 07:11 AM

The Wind of Flatrock Newfoundland - For Friends Far Away
When God blows wind in Newfoundland, it moves the trees, that grip the land.

Some winds will take your breath away and carry where the seagulls play. 
So oft the wind will move the day, yet ne'er we see it pass our way.
We stop to gaze and then a phrase, we think of life and offer praise.
Thanks for gentle winds and more, the sights, the sounds, the sheltered shore.  
Thanks for life, for ears and eyes, for beauty in wind and sea and skies.
