Newfoundland stole my heart


I have travelled to many places in the world, but there are a very few places where I felt at home as much as I did in Newfoundland.  It stole my heart!  I have heard many beautiful stories about not just the scenery but most of all about the people, who make this wonderful province so unforgettable ! I was very excited when Amy, whose destination wedding I captured back in April in the Dominican Republic– CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT –, asked me to go back with her and John to Benoit’s Cove, NF to attend a local  wedding reception for those, who couldn’t attend at the DR.  There are no words to express how I felt while I was there and how sweet and real people are. There is a certain innocence in their heart, which we in cities tend to loose  or better to say not to attend  in a way perhaps we should. We get caught up with work, technology, rushing here and there…..I can’t say enough of the locals and all the sweet people I have had the luck to meet. Perhaps the best way I can honor them is to post some wonderful images for you to see what I mean. If an image is worth a thousand words, I think I wouldn’t have enough images to post in order to  express the greatness of these magnificent people.

I also would like to say a big Thank You to Amy and her wonderful family, for their kindness and beautiful hospitality!

Please stay tuned in for the 2nd part of this trip. I will try to cacth up with my blog post soon!

The scenery photos were taken at Frenchman’s Cove, Benoit’s Cove, Lark Harbour, Blow Me Down Provincial Park in Newfoundland!

    Eva, these pictures are stunning! And I’m so glad you included images of those wonderful people you got to know while there. Being from Nova Scotia, I know only too well the beauty of Newfoundland and it’s residents. They still, to me, are the most geniune kind people in Canada. I’m thrilled that you had a chance to experience it all!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Take care and hope to see you again;
