Random Island

By JimV
Saying what a healthy person you are, as I did a few days earlier, is asking for trouble, as I found out last week, Wasn't feeling too good last Thursday so after dinner went to bed, and stayed there for the next few days, finally got back on my feet just to run into this awful heatwave of temperatures in the mid 30's (95F), and humidity up to 40 (104F). We're to get some relief on Sunday, but that'll be after we've had a visit from Hurricane Earl, though it's not taking quite as dead aim on Nova Scotia as earlier projected (could change again) we'll get lots of rain and high winds.
Did manage to get my grass cut yesterday, managed that in stages of early morning, late afternoon and evening, in between was siesta time!
Hadn't been near the computer for days, so have a lot of catching up to do, first essential was to attend to e-mails, phone calls, etc., now I have time for off we go!
These two shots were taken on Random Island, Newfoundland, not sure exactly where now but it was (I think) in the Hickman Harbour area. Random Isaland was where some outdoor shooting was done for the filming of Annie Proulx's Pulitzer Prize winning "THe Shipping News". My son-in-law worked on the sets both there and in Halifax. The movie didn't get a very good review by the critics, but Mary and I enjoyed it.

Both lovely vistas Jim, but v2 is my pick for today. Again, it could have been taken right near where Iive in Bergen - never ceases to amaze me how similar the landscape is.
Glad to hear you got some rain. Yesterday we were severely under the throes of Tropical Storm Hermine, we got over 10 inches of well needed rain here. It's raining a lot today too, and we've had some power outages. I see we will have yard work to do - cleaning up limbs, and dealing with a bit of erosion on the side of the house. But, I'll take the rain despite the work.
