Majestic. I think that’s the word that best describes Newfoundland.
When you’re standing on top of a cliff with a roaring sea crashing against the rocks below- it’s majestic.
When you’re watching a pod of whales tour a bay – it’s majestic.
When you’re learning about how this province has so greatly contributed to our history- it’s majestic.
When you’re eating favourite local dishes- it’s majestic.
When your Airbnb host brings you a bag of fresh capelin just because they “rolled-in” – it’s majestic.
When you’re standing on the most eastern point in Canada- it’s majestic.
Newfoundland, you are both beautiful and dignified. I have never met another province quite like you, and I can’t wait to visit you again soon.
Quiet summer days are best spent reading (in case you’re wondering, I read Homegoing and it was excellent. Highly recommend!).
Oh Canada, you sure are beautiful.
