Out Round da Bay

My mom, the boys, and I are flying home tomorrow, but I wanted to get my final Newfoundland post up before we left. The day after my dad’s service we headed out to my Aunt Karen and Uncle Michael’s place in New Pelican. New Perlican is a heritage harbour and one of the first inhabited fishing villages in Newfoundland. The first written record of New Perlican is from 1619 and the town was settled in 1675 .

A few years ago, Karen and Michael bought the old general store with the goal of opening Sea Glass B&B and Studio. This will be their second summer of DIY projects in preparation for their grand opening, but we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek.

They plan to open the B&B in the summer of 2016. Michael, of Menagerie de Verre, will offer stain glass workshops for beginners and seasoned artists. While Karen, who was my wedding photographer, will put down her camera long enough to cook breakfast for their guests!

This year's project is to convert the old general store into a stain glass studio.

The house was orignially built in the mid 1800s and was awesome!

Two fishing stages right behind their place at low tide.

Karen has photographed the cellars and the fish stages of New Perlican. She went of to create two calendars, one of which is travelling home with me.

I am so glad we were able to drive out and spend a night. Even just getting there provided lots of opportunities to get out my camera! It was a little early in the season and we dealt with a fair bit of rain, but that didn’t stop us from walking part of d’Iberville Trail. I cannot wait to see the B&B once it is finished. Perhaps I can even talk Harrison into heading out to learn a little stain glass!

Ships in Brigus. Karen had a very similar shot done on canvas on her wall. I couldn't resist!
