On The Point

Words and images to capture the joy of vacation, the value of family, the chaos of kids, and the beauty of The Rock.

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 - It's nice to see some deciduous trees.

We are doing our best to wear a track in the Southern Shore Highway.   Back out to the city today for the 192nd running of the Royal St. John's Regatta.  From their website: This historic regatta is the oldest continuing sporting event in North America. The event continues to draw in excess of 50,000 spectators each year and is a major focal point of summer activities in the St. John's area.  Exciting!

But in keeping with our tradition of squeezing as much as possible into every day, we didn't JUST go to the Regatta (where we ate Ziggy Peelgood fries, watched the races, did gymnastics, visited with friends, and hob-nobbed with costumed wrestlers).  We also went to Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America.  The whales we breaching everywhere, putting on quite a show.  Corneilus got some great photos! 

While there, Gary was especially impressed with the cannons, last used to shoot...well...Germans, actually.

After the Regatta it was off to Kate's for our second annual Cindy Power invitational barbeque.  Deeeelicious!  And extra special this year as we were also celebrating Gary MacDonald's 50th birthday.  The high fives were coming fast and furious!
