Ramblings from 2012

Ansa the wonder dog and I hiked and rambled a lot back in the day. Many photos of these times pop up in my google feed regularly.

This was a day we spent walking around Brigus and Cupids 7 years ago. How times such as these vanish in the batting of an eye! Those days I would throw my good camera in my knapsack and pack our picnic lunches and her bowls and our water and strike off for parts unknown to both of us. Happy days and still vivid in my memory bank. Having a dog like Ansa allowed me to meet so many people as they were so drawn to her.

Cupids is the site of the first child born of European parents in North America. Many Brigus captains became arctic explorers.

I am so grateful to be living in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Though I know many of you feel the same about where you live! These shots were taken mid-afternoon and the winter sun was lowering casting deep shadows and an amber effect on the scenery which I love.

The three sisters of Brigus.

Retired Boats in Brigus, I love the shadows cast by the November sun on these.

  3. I notice the houses are very close to the shore there. Do you not get storms that blow up and lash the buildings with salty water?
    Beautiful photos, I love the retired boats.

  4. Thank you River. Yes, many of these houses are painted yearly and doorknobs rust out really quickly along with hinges :)

    1. There's something about the connectivity of it all, Gigi, fish from the sea, the water where we all originated.

  7. Wonderful photographs, WWW! - I especially like the Quiet Beach in Brigus, and the retired boats (I can "feel" that atmosphere, and hear the quiet murmur of the ocean! Mmmmm!)

    1. Especially a well trained one who doesn't jump all over people. I can never understand why people don't train their dogs properly, dogs love being trained.

  9. Sometimes, we can be remember those times with gratefulness that we experienced them and satisfaction with what we accomplished. Other times, the grief digs deep. Ansa's death still hits hard, doesn't it?

    I've been catching up, reading past posts. What an insightful person you are, and how lucky I am to have somehow found your blog.
