The Town held an event as part of the 50th birthday celebrations last weekend at the community centre. There were several places set up to get your picture taken with some sort of backdrop to showcase the event, this cake being one of them.

I have been very slack with posting for quite some time now and hope for the next little while to play a little catch up. I haven't been taking many snaps so hence little to post. I came to realize I miss looking at and commenting on others photos too.

11 Dutch F-16's visited here a couple weeks ago and I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time. I have several other good snaps but for some reason they won't upload to blogger for me?

Wow, I can't believe the summer is gone and school is started again. Time flies and it's been a month since I had a chance to post! I've taken lots of snaps in that time and am still sorting them out.......hope to post a little more often now....hoping to...
This is just a little sample of an enourmous amout of pictures taken this day at Cape St. Mary's. To get the idea of the amount of birds on the seastack click on the top picture for a closer look.

The view from on the water in St. John's Harbour is quite different from the view on land. My first trip out there was only a couple of years ago, despite having grown up in the area. I like the different perspective it gives on the familiar landmarks. The first picture is "The Basilica Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist" a 152 year old Catholic church. The second picture is "The Rooms," Newfoundland and Labrador's newest cultural and historical showplace. The Rooms unites the Provincial Museum, the Provincial Art Gallery and the Provincial Archives under one roof. It was built to model after the "fishing rooms" where families came together to process their catch. The last picture is "The Battery" situated at the entrance to St. John's Harbour at the base of the steep slopes of Signal Hill.

"Canadian Coast Guard" ship just came out of the fog headed right for St. John's Harbour.
"Elizabeth Madeline" making her way home to St. John's harbour. The "Iceberg Quest" Ocean Tours boat behind. One thing always never very far from the East Coast is that bank of fog, you can see it very visible in the background here.
