Fishing Stage, Tilting, Newfoundland, August 2008.
I don't knew who said it first but it is a remarkable phrase:
Life is not measured by the amount of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
And I had many of these moments in the past few days up in northern Newfoundland in the Fogo area.
The grandgirl and I went on many hikes, climbed many mountains, toured museums, took to the briny and caught dolphins at play and both the humpback and fin whales cavorting. It seems like we spent weeks soaking in these breathtaking sights but in reality it was just five days.
Five remarkable days.
One of many highlights was time spent on top of Brimstone Head which is deemed to be one of the four corners of the earth by the Flat Earth Society. We found this crazy inukshuk on top of it and the views in all directions were spellbinding.
I had the camera at the ready all of the time. Here is another one of two
boathouses and a string of punts in Tilting.
But the best photo albums are in our hearts.
