This spring we've had very, very little fog - which is typically our default spring weather for weeks on end.

Went for a run this morning in the rain - but it quickly cleared away and it's become a beautiful day.

Looks like the Americans beat us at North America's oldest continuous sports event while they were here.

The Regatta is cancelled this year due to COVID-19. One of the very few times in two centuries, except for a major disaster or the coronation of a monarch.

Is snowstorm like that a regular occurence? To photograph with heavy snow on the ground and in the air is very impressive. No matter amount of the snow, the colourfulness of the rows of houses is unmistakable. Actually, the colours seem to stand out even more during winter.

I really like the coastline and those cliffs and rocks along the water too. I'm not sure I've seen anything like that in person. It makes me think I need to spend more time visiting the lakes here, especially in Canadian Shield, or maybe even visit Newfoundland one day.

To that degree, no. It's the first that bad I've experienced. We were completely shut down here, not so much as a corner store open for days, and almost everything shut down for two weeks. It was, in hindsight, EXCELLENT prep for the COVID-19 lockdown, though. Covid is nothing compared to that storm. SO many more things (groceries, for example, gas stations) were able to operate during the Covid lockdown.

But that said, a good blizzard with a couple feet of snow here can happen every year.

Yesterday...

It's already summer here. The fog is even staying just offshore like it does in July/August.

And today...

It is So. Fucking. Hot. And the stench of weed coming out of Bannerman Park, I wish you could smell this lol

Video Link


We went for a bike ride on the Trailway (former Newfoundland Railway) from downtown St. John's to near the edge of Mount Pearl and Paradise. As it's a former railbed, it's almost all slightly uphill from downtown... but coming back? Tens of kilometres and you don't even need to pedal lol. Fucking BEAUTIFUL. I usually hike, and never go the Trailway because there's so many long, straight stretches. Might as well walk around mile farm roads out west, just kill me lol. But by bike, those stretches are more stimulating. It was REALLY enjoyable. Especially how out of shape we are in terms of being completely wiped out by kilometre after kilometre of a slight incline lol

St. John's...



There was a rainshower as we got into Mount Pearl. It was very, very welcome lol



Mount Pearl...

Nice pictures! I love the nature pictures from the updates this month. That water along the rugged coastline looks amazing!
