Newfoundland: Stephenville Shack

Stephenville Crossing, NL
June 23, 2013

T'was a windy day to be at this beach, glad the wind helped unfurl the Newfoundland flag for this shot. ^_^

The haze in the sky that day looked like smog, not your usual summer haze.  As we drove South towards the ferry terminal in Port aux Basques, the brown colour in the sky became quite pronounced.  We wondered if we were driving in to a natural disaster...were we listening to the wrong radio station?!?  Turns out it was smoke from forest fires in Labrador, some of which are still burning today.  It's days like this that remind us we are all connected on this big blue marble of ours.
