OK, so it’s been a while. What have we been up to?
Well….We are now back in the good ‘ol US of A. It’s nice to be back. But on the other hand….. We Miss Newfoundland!
We miss the nice, friendly people. Not that their aren’t nice people here in the US. Their are many. It’s just different.
The people there are also quirky. I say that because you’d see things like this…
Because when you pick up your bait, you should make sure you have enough fluids for your fishing trip.
You also see things like this…
Because everyone should drink when they are scrap booking. Or better yet, make a scrapbook about your wine/beer making skills! Or maybe it’s because you need to drink to make a decent scrapbook. What ever the reason, you can get all your supplies in one place.
But then again, I should not make fun of the Newfie people. They are not quite with the modern times. They have to live with things like this…
We miss the beautiful scenery. And I’m not talking Smoky Mountain, Arizona Desert, Atlantic and Pacific Ocean pretty.
I mean the Gros Morne National Park, 1000 year old fishing villages, Fjords and Earth Mantle Rocks pretty.
As our friend Evelyn would say, “It’s Beeeaaauuutifffullll!” And we miss our friends that we traveled with.
Good company, laughter, the stories and great food!
Thanks Evelyn and Gladys for the wonderful meals you shared with us. The onion rings. The fried fish. Haddock, Cod, Shrimp and Flounder. Ohhhh the flounder. We tried everything and liked most. Yes, we liked the fish. Thanks for that.
And Curtis, we appreciate all the talks and guidance. You will always be a good friend.
We miss the hand crafted town signs. The billboard free highways. The construction zones that only last for a blink of an eye. The fresher than fresh, just off the boat seafood. That is, if we ate seafood. But we can appreciate how good it would be.
So why did we leave Newfoundland?
Good question. We are still asking ourselves that.
We are enjoying the large grocery stores with all the product brands we like. Fresh fruits and veggies because everything in Newfoundland is imported.
Boneless chicken breasts that aren’t $14 for 2! The variety of restaurants, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, etc.
All our television satellite stations.
Redbox and Netflix.
Data on our phones.
We are also enjoying modern conveniences. Such as automatic car washes that you can just drive through and not get out of your car.
And movie theaters!
And pay at the pump gas stations.
All in all it was a wonderful trip. Would we go back again?
IN A HEARTBEAT!!!!
