Picturesque Portugal Cove-St. Philips

We decided to take a little drive on Sunday.  
There are so many pretty places to visit on the Avalon Peninsula. 

Portugal Cove-St. Philips ranks right up there.

Lobster pots.....

Here comes the Bell Island ferry!

High winds make for high seas

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.

Quidi Vidi Village

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.

Torbay Sunset

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.

Here is a pic that I took this evening..........
