When my daughter Katrina and her boyfriend Charlie visited last summer they made a detour there to sample the offerings at the new brewery. She bought a long sleeved shirt advertising the business venture, which Charlie "stole" from her so I was tasked with purchasing a replacement.
I got there when they opened and discovered they had the best views! I was a big fan of their decor choices too. Craft Breweries are a new thing in Newfoundland, and I hope they do well. I know they were doing a brisk business in merchandise that morning, if not selling a lot of brews.
I've often wondered what to do with a spare dory we have at the house and now I know! I've been looking at similar light fixtures online too, so great to see one in use.
After buying shirts and hats which I ended up giving to them for Christmas gifts I made a stop in the rest room. Murals in every stall!
Of course I'll have to assume the mens room was similarly decorated, I didn't take a look.
I popped in to Quidi Vidi Village Plantation , a building home to local artisans at work and I wanted to see what that meant. It turns out only 3 artists were in residence that day and they did not have the kind of thing I was looking for so I just made do with the spectacular views from inside as the last light of day started ebbing away.

In Newfoundland even the backyard sheds are colorful. Don't think mine won't be just as snazzy when the time comes!
Walking back to my parked car I noticed one that not only had a porthole window but a ship on display as well. Great idea!
Today Katrina and I left Wisconsin for our 2nd January Getaway...hmmm, maybe I should make it a recurring thing even after I move to Newfoundland! Two years ago we drove all the way to Texas, stopping at numerous sites related to past U.S. Presidents. This year we head to Louisville, Kentucky, where we'll explore the city neighborhoods and I'll get a chance to say my good-bye to spur-of-the-moment Kentucky jaunts. I can't imagine not being able to sprint to Kentucky or Tennessee at the drop of a hat for some hiking but I will have all those nooks and crannies on "The Rock" to explore instead to keep my mind off my loss....
