Well, I knew that but now the rest of you know too!


Photo taken a few minutes ago from my front garden.

National Geographic Magazine has declared the Avalon Peninsula, Newfoundland, where I live, the top coastal travel destination IN THE WORLD!

  1. It's certainly a lovely spot. I note similarities with the Michigan U.P. - only salt water rather than the fresh of Lake Superior.

    I do hope we've solved your SC access problems.

    And Lake Superior is wonderful also, spent some time there on the Ontario side, it often looks like the ocean with the wild water.
    Yes I now accessed your blog, wonder why I'm on the evil-doer list?

  7. What Grannymar said! Once a place becomes the in destination, the tourist hordes can be a pain in the neck. At least the sunbathers will go somewhere else.

  8. Looks delightful, WWW! And so peaceful. These days, for us, anywhere that other people don't go is "the best place." Most of the better looking places of this sort have changed, and become nasty tourist traps, but there are a few well-kept secrets, surprisingly enough even in these parts.

    The National Geographic ought to know better than to give your secret away. Shame on 'em!

  9. Oh fine, just fine, now you can say good bye to your lovely place. Tourists can sure mess up things in a hurry.
    Wait does anyone read NG anymore? There is a sliver of hope yet...

  10. Your photos have long convinced me of this. Great to have National Geographic confirm it, though! And the photo above has a view I don't remember seeing before.

  11. All:
    Yes we are a little nervous of marauding hoards of tourists demanding Disneyland North!

    I took this standing in my garden looking right (East towards Galway) and took the pic for the child (now grandmother herself) who was raised in my house and now lives in Connecticut and is a friend on FB. Small world department...

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
