Given the geography of Newfoundland (something that will become VERY apparent as you check out this gallery), it’s hardly surprising that this Canadian island-province’s nickname is the “Rock.”
The Rock has a special place in both of our hearts. Sharon’s father hails from Burgeo on the south shore ( check out some shots from Burgeo below) while Mark lived in Newfoundland back in the 70’s and went to school in St. John’s.
In the words of Newfoundland and Labrador’s unofficial anthem, “Ode to Newfoundland”, “As loved our fathers, so we love, Where once they stood we stand.”
Here are images, not just of the rock, but of a way of life, of images that are fond memories for both of us.
