This morning I was reminsing about our Christmas vacation last year in Newfoundland
and because I wasn't a blogger at the time I decided I should share some of the pictures!
We flew in to St. John's which was beautiful.
One of those place I always wanted to go and lucky enough my uncle
met and married (a wonderful) Newfie lady and moved to St. John's a few years ago.
Also Dave's aunt and family live here also.
Dave took me on a tour, as he went to school in St.John's for awhile.
This is the view of the downtown from Signal Hill
St. John's is known for it's colored buildings...
Behind me is the Battery and wayyy up on the hill there is a tiny building, that is Signal Hill ... brrr it was cold.
Then we went to visit Dave's brother, sister in law and kids.
Dave's hometown is about 5 hours from St. John's and is also a small little (cute) town.
Here is the house he grew up in (on the left), with his grandparents house right beside (they all still live there)
sorry for the dashboard, it was too cold to venture out if it wasn't needed!!
After a few days of visiting we headed out to Dave's best friends cabin.
Because there wasn't TONS of snow, we went quadding!
Vrooom Vroom... so fun!!
Towards the end of our trip we went on a CRAZY COLD (-15 C or 5 F) hike.
The whole hike took us about 3 hours and we went up SO many stairs
From the (
almost)top - I couldn't go anymore, my legs were frozen solid, it was getting late, and I wanted to
You can see the water in the right corner, that is where Dave's hometown is.
There was no need for fashion on this hike, it was all about staying warm! haha
By the time we got back to the truck, I was this cold
The only skin showing and my eyes were COLD! haha
Last but not least, we went for a little adventure around Dave's hometown...
I snapped some pictures of these "stages" I think that's the name at least!
I thought they were so pretty
I hope you enjoyed the trip!
We are looking forward going back probably 2 times this year.
I would like to see it at other times of the year too, as it was pretty chilly to walk around!
Happy First Day of Winter!!
I'll leave you with this... if you have kids YOU MUST do this for them
It's so super magical.
