  1. Beautiful photo Bay Girl and that's quite a lot of P places, probably more than for any other letter. In my opinion this place maybe should have been called Pretty Harbour, it looks amazing.

  2. That IS a beautiful photo. I'd totally blow that one up and frame it if I were you. And wow, what's with all the Ps in Newfoundland???? My hubby wants to go to Port au Bras because he has a thing for ladies underwear. (Let me clarify - only when they're in it, not him... )

    1. I always find the water looks inviting, until you're standing on the edge and looking at all the critters in there

  7. Lots of P's, even a Paradise and a Pasadena. I was born in a Pasadena, but I'm sure it isn't nearly a nice as the one in your area.
