Shipwreck Point

In my husband's hometown of Frederickton, Newfoundland there is a ship called the Ahern Trader that ran aground in 1960. Here is what remains of it after nearly 50 years.

And a Few More.

Our dog Jazz watched from the wharf every time we went out in the boat. The first couple of times she actually cried thinking we were leaving her behind. It was so sad.

There is nothing to compare to a big feed of lobsters.

We were in St. Johns for Canada and went to watch the fireworks down at Quidi Vidi Lake. There was fog drifting in and out of the area and it made for some interesting effects with the fireworks.

We went on a day trip to Twillingate last Saturday and visited the Long Point Lighthouse as well as seeing the icebergs. We went all the way up to the top of the lighthouse. The view was fantastic but it was also incredibly hot up there.

A Few More Pictures

My husband's cousin is a hairdresser in Carmanville and she gave my daughter a fantastic haircut. For the first time in ages I'm not having to fight to get the brush through a matted mess. Hurray!

Here is the before pic.
And the after.

Here are a couple of more pics from the trip.

It's Good To Be Home!

I love my in-laws (you won't hear any Mother-in-law horror stories from me), but after almost 3 weeks of staying in other people's homes I am really looking forward to having a long, hot soak in the jetted tub tonight and sleeping in my own bed. By myself. No cat. No dog. No child.

The downside to coming home after 3 weeks away is a big stack of mail to go through, close to a 100 e-mails and pages of posts to catch up on my favourite scrapbooking forums. I've also downloaded close to 1000 pictures that I need to sort through. I plan on posting at least one a day for the rest of July to get me blogging more regularly.

Here is the first one taken at my Father-in-law's wharf. It's just an old pulley, but it has so much character.
