The beach, the Newfie and a photoshoot

Never take a Newfie ....

 Calm and serene… a row of Coastguard’s cottages stand guard on the shingle beach … but wait a minute…. 

Never take a Newfie ....

“Hello, hello, what have we here?”

Never take a Newfie ....

“Never seen these on the beach before!  Is anyone in there?”  

Never take a Newfie ....

“Come on out .. I know you’re in there” (Waiting to pounce) 

Never take a Newfie ....

OK, bored now – going to swim.   Bye Mum, I’ll be in the sea if you want me!

And the moral is .. never take your Newfie on a photoshoot!!  Coastguard cottages for the August e-zine.

    Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada! I really enjoy receiving your e-letter and visiting your blog. The picture today of your Newfie dog and the row of houses delighted me! I’m a “wanna-be Newfoundlander” (the island of, not the dog!) Newfoundland, as you may know, is one of our 10 Canadian provinces and I lived there for 8 years, falling in love with the people, the land and the sea. The city of St. John’s is the capital, and is well known for its colourful houses (just google “Jelly Bean Row, St. John’s, NL” and click images) Your Coastguard Houses reminded me of those houses and happy visits to St. John’s! Thank you for so generously sharing your creative gifts.

  8. Love seeing the Ocean!!! I can hear the sounds!
    Love your little houses…so cute~!
    Love your dog! Does he swim? ♥♥♥
