Back From The Rock

The "Rock" in this case is Newfoundland not Alcatraz. The people who stay on the Rock do so because they want to. Many Newfies live their whole life there without going anywhere else.

Yesterday, it rained all day and all night which is normal for the Avalon Peninsula which is close to the Atlantic ocean.

Despite the weather, we managed to see the "Cable Building" in Heart's Content where the first transatlantic cable was laid in 1866. It was an awesome feat of engineering in the 19th century and the operation lasted until 1965.

We woke up to a strong cool breeze from Spaniard's Bay which felt quite invigorating.

After that, we said goodbye to my wife's brother Clarence and his wife, Winnie. We don't see each other very often, but the time spent together was lots of fun (singing, playing cards, enjoying a good laugh, etc)

When we left, there were tears in our eyes.
