  3. In all of your pictures, there are so many vivid colors with red dominating. Must be a popular coastal color.

    1. there used to be very few colours to choose from in the bays - a lot of homes were painted the same as the boats (white, greens, blue and yellows) the red was handmade ochre paint

  4. Oh I have in interesting story about getting stranded near Sunnyside. Actually it's not that interesting. But Sunnyside is a nice place.

    This is the best tour ever.

    1. a large portion of Newfoundland's economy is fishing, oil and mining - its a way of life

  10. Oil platforms? It sounds to me like those may ruin that beautiful picture you posted.

    1. they are not the traditional oil platforms (they are offshore FPSO - floating production storage offloading facilities, and a GBS - gravity based structure)

  11. Sure seems like so many s's. The spot looks relaxing. Too bad for oil platforms.
