Day trip to Bell Island

My sister, niece,daughter and I took a little day trip to Bell Island last Sunday....what a beautiful day!!

Bell Island is a Canadian island located off Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula in Conception Bay.  It is home to three communities, the largest of which is the incorporated town of Wabana.  The provincial government operates a ferry service from Portugal Cove to Bell island daily. It is primarily used by commuters who work in the St. John's metropolitan area.

While waiting at Portugal Cove, for the ferry to bring us across the tickle, I took a shot of this lovely little waterfall.......................

After just a twenty minute ferry ride, here's what we saw as we approached the wharf on the island......
We drove around the island and were amazed at the quiet beauty.  I fell in love with this 
abandoned little house....
The beautiful, weather-beaten, old fences around fields and green pastures....
The scenery is beautiful from every angle......
This was the cherry on the top of my antique fire truck, on display,
outside the local fire house
I would highly recommend, to anyone who has the opportunity, a visit Bell Island.  It is beautiful.
