Day Four: Brigus

We were lucky enough to host one of DH's cousin's a few weekends ago (Hi, R!!!). DH only has two cousins (TWO!) and this is the first time we've been able to welcome one of them into our home seeing as we are in the extreme East and they live in Western Canada. It was a short and sweet trip but we really hope that she had fun because we all really enjoyed seeing her.

This was R's first time visiting the East coast of Canada and we wanted to give her a good all around tour to give her a sense of our beautiful province. Here are some shots taken on our day trip to beautiful Brigus, NL.

The community park grounds.

Brigus has canals that ebb and flow with the high and low tides.

I could include architectural pictures until you were bored. Here are a selection.

The building is called 'Ye Olde Stone Barn.'

The houses that the people of Brigus get to live in are just striking.

I missed taking a picture of the church itself but...

... I did capture one of the traditionally used church gate.

Here's a little bit of history for you regarding the town and it's founders. You can click on the plaque picture to enlarge them if you fancy a read.

Graffiti makes its way everywhere, doesn't it?

Couldn't you just move in?!?

I love how even the fences are designed in keeping with the architectural age of many of the homes and buildings.

And that's that. Just another gorgeous day in small town Newfoundland and Labrador.
