We drove just over an hour out of the city to one of our favourite little communities in Conception Bay. The Town of Brigus is packed full of little gems - cafes and restaurants, antique stores and ice cream shops. We strolled along the narrow and winding streets, taking in the sights and sounds of all that the quaint little community has to offer. Though we have been there many times before, we admired the historic grounds of Hawthorne Cottage and explored the famous Brigus Tunnel as if it was our first. We are easy tourists. We appreciate the beauty of our province and love the fact that you don't have to travel far to see the extraordinary.
Once we checked in to our cozy B&B, Andrew and I headed out to conquer the Burnt Head Trails. The trails, which start just behind the B&B, are a network of circular seacoast and forest trails, passing remnants of long-gone communities with spectacular ocean views, including a close up look at an impressive sea arch.
My favourite thing about getting away.. is coming home.
We are back, submerged again into our routines. I've got my sweet boy in my arms and life feels good.
