Living back home

How time changes everything.....I am back on the East coast of Canada and miss my loving West coast of Canada very much. I have come to realize that I live in a beautiful country and I no longer desire one place over the other. I have come to love it all. I am very blessed to have seen and share so much of my country with my family. I no longer dream of living in one place....I have listened to my heart and realize I love to travel, to experience new things and build new ``Pockets of Sunshine``. I will live back in Victoria one day, but for now I will embrace the beauty around me.
I am still a fishermans daughter, but I also fish myself. I love the feel of being on the is very peaceful. You must wait for some updated pictures of my beautiful sunsets on the water. I have included on from my home but the boat pictures are something else.....coming to you soon!!

"Miss Samantha" in the distance.......While the children play at the beach.....
The water looks cool and the sky has a story it wants to tell.....
What a great tale it will be.....

A long time to say Hello.....

The joys of my life.

I spent a month of my summer 'back home'. How I love to walk in the past steps of time. It is just a small piece of my heaven. If one could dream hard enough to explore a small part of Newfoundland, this would be a great place to start.

There is much to see and smell. To sit and be at peace for so long. It is my place to go and quickly reconnect with myself. The 'Rat race of life' can sallow a person quickly. This is my place to be grounded. It is so easy to do, there is always love surrounding you. The fresh air fills my lungs with every breath.

To relax....................................
To smile....................................
To be loved...............................

A Day as a child

To sit as a child in the sand and enjoy the shimmery colours..... How you can forget the world around you.

My memories of the Newfoundland beach front are as fond to me, as a rose pedal to a bee. I enjoyed the peace I would receive each and everytime I stepped foot upon the sand.

We would play at the beach near Grandfathers fishing shack and make outlines of houses. We would make dressers, beds, a kitchen table, and anything our imagination could bring to life. We did this on a regular basis, as Grandfather spent much of his time keeping up his Sanctuary. It stands today, 19 years after Grandfather has left us with large a pocket of sunshine. It stands abandon, yet so full of life.

The Beach

The beach has so much to offer. It is full of surprises........footprints. It receives new rocks daily, only to bring as beautiful a scene as the day before.

"It is like you get to step onto a new beach everyday without travelling a single mile. "

The ocean washes away the old sand, and brings with it the new. Life is forever changing around us and we should always stop and let the sand go between our toes.

Newfoundland, just like the coast of British Columbia has so much to offer. I now walk the beaches of BC and with it comes a new ocean ...."the beauty is endless". I think of myself as lucky to have seen two of the most beautiful parts of our country. From one end of Canada to the other. My home is now BC but will always be NL. I look forward to sharing more of my pictures and memories.
