I am from Gambo, NL, located on the east coast of Canada, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. My hometown of Gambo was once divided into three smaller communities, known as Middle Brook, Dark Cove & Gambo. I grew up in Dark Cove, and absolutely love to cook and bake, so I thought what better name could there be for my first blog than 'My Dark Cove Pantry'. Even though I now live in Flatrock, and now have a new pantry, it will always be 'My Dark Cove Pantry'.
We have had exceptionally high winds recently, and it sure is evident when looking at the ocean.
I went over to Middle Cove Beach this evening to take a few snaps. If you scroll back a few posts, you can do a comparison.
For me, there is something, almost hypnotizing, about watching and listening, as the waves crash against the rocks. I have a feeling I'm not the only one, judging by the people on the beach, and still arriving, to have little fires while admiring the majestic ocean, in all her glory.
I am amazed every time I go to this beautiful little village. It's hard to believe it is right in the city of St. John's. It is truly like stepping back in time. I just love it so much.
It reminds of going for holiday visits to my father's home, when we were children. We would have to drive, for what seemed like days, and then take a ferry over to the beautiful island of Greenspond.
Even though it's still pretty cold, there are hints that spring is just around the corner.
I am also getting back into my "outdoor" walking routine. I walk during the winter months at an indoor track, but there is nothing like the cold fresh air and the breeze blowing on your face.
