Mad Rocks

With three children keeping us extremely busy, Andrew and I have very little down time. There is always an appointment to keep or a deadline to meet or a pile of laundry to tackle, and every now and then we just need a break. Fresh air always does the trick for us, but the weather hasn't been great here lately. We are still waiting for it to warm up but we get very excited when we see the sunshine! We took advantage of a nice day last week and drove out to Bay Roberts to do the Shoreline Heritage Walk (we call it the Mad Rock Trail). This 6km trail starts at the tip of the Bay Roberts Peninsula and has incredible views of Conception Bay. It turned out to be pretty cloudy and grey, but we love breathing in the salt sea air, and will take it any way we can get it!

Here are some photos of our hike on the Mad Rock Trail!

We stopped at a pebble beach that looks out to the Three Sisters rock formation, taking some time to enjoy the view and the sweet sounds of the ocean crashing up against the rocks. This is our happy place! Well, ok, we are happiest when we are all together as a family, loving our littles with everything we've got. Our children are our obvious priority, but when we're busy and stressed and there's not a whole lot of sleep happening, we make an effort to trim off excess responsibilities and lighten our load. It is amazing how recharged we feel after just a few hours away from it all.. no cell phones, no laundry, just the two of us talking about life and how good we've got it.
