I remember as a child going on many, many Sunday drives and taking in the sights around Newfoundland.
Mom and dad would pile us into the car and away we would go! Sometimes we would end up around the boot (the Burin Peninsula) or other times I remember even going to Swift Current and stopping at Piper’s Hole to have a picnic. We didn’t know where we would end up and I don’t know how my parents survived with my sister and I almost always having our heads our the windows with carsickness or the four of us (my youngest brother didn’t arrive for another few years) in the back seat bickering and fighting until we could get out and stretch our legs. I can’t remember how many times we heard “If I have to stop this car and get out!!!” Those where the days before ipods, ipads, or even cell phones so we would entertain ourselves with eye spy, punch buggy and whatever else our imaginations could muster up! Those car rides and the places we saw are such great memories! Thanks mom and dad!
Today I still enjoy Sunday drives! Ours are a little different from the drives as a child as I always take my camera and my hiking shoes for more often than not, we end up going on a little walk to enjoy the view and get some fresh air! Here are some pictures from my Sunday drives around Newfoundland! Enjoy! 🙂
