Family

My Aunt and Uncle and their two kids came for a visit and stayed the night. This morning, after breakfast, I introduced them to the Crossing beach. Adam really enjoyed himself.

It’s back to school for me really soon; one week from today. I’m going to be spending the next few days out enjoying myself to the fullest because I know we’re going to have a LOT of work to do as soon as we get back. Bonus: Aaron is coming home tomorrow 🙂

New beach

This photo was taken at a new beach, not the old faithful Stephenville Crossing beach you’re used to seeing. I’m not sure where this one is located exactly – It’s between Kippens and Port au Port, if anyone can provide a name for me that would be cool.
It’s a really nice area, it’s partly sandy, partly rocky. Easy access for vehicles too. I saw a few fire pits down there that people made with rocks so I’m guessing it’s a popular place for that, I wouldn’t know because I don’t spend much time in that area.
Anyway, I’m finished up my contract with the newspaper I was working at. It was at times challenging, but the people I worked with were great so it made work life a lot easier.
Well here’s the pic, I’m not at all tired so I’m going to go find something else to preoccupy the rest of the night with – it’s too hot to sleep right now.

Bright green

Despite having a sore throat and what feels like an ear infection, I went to the beach today.  It was a warm 22’c and the breeze was just strong enough that I didn’t feel too warm. I forgot to mention last week that I bought a new camera. It’s a  Kodak point-and-shoot. 8x optical zoom. 14 megapixels. It does the job, and it’s compact enough for me to carry around in my purse and not feel like it’s weighing me down. Plus, I wouldn’t feel as bad if I were to break that one over my Rebel.

As I said, I’ve got a cold, so here are a few pictures from the beach. I would write more, but I feel like napping before I start cooking supper. Hope you all had a good weekend, here’s hoping we have a great work week too.
