Life in Newfoundland

Category / Sightseeing

Shoe Rock Window

Bell Island is a beautiful place to visit. Lots of scenery, lots of history, and lots of colourful sunsets over Conception Bay. One particularly fine spot to watch the sunset on Bell Island is Shoe Rock, and if you’re one to tempt fate you may even want to watch it from inside the Shoe Rock Window, a shallow and […]

Finding fall colours in Newfoundland

Memories of a summer vacation

When I lived in Newfoundland I used to go outside on nearly every clear night. I ventured out on these amazing night hikes to see the stars rise from the ocean and capture their sparkling trails across […]

Random Passage: back in time

The novel Random Passage tells a tale of Newfoundland outport life as it might have been in the early 1800s. Ten years after its publication this story was made into a TV Mini-Series, which of course required the creation of a filmset. This small cove near New Bonaventure was chosen as the location of the filmset because it is so secluded, you can easily walk around here […]
