a lot of spring runoff coming down the fraser, huge line in the ocean, pretty cool to see, should have tried a pic earlier though

A few recently uploaded ones, not my own.

Set to probably the single most famous/beloved singer in our history. She shot herself in the 70s, I think it was, but until then... there's never been anyone close to as famous locally. Not even Great Big Sea, Hey Rosetta, or anything else.

Video Link


Not surprised both my parents had 13 siblings; and one grandfather had 22 lol Song about the Canadian baby bonus' popularity in Newfoundland, which pre-Confederation didn't have it.

"Well the bells are all ringing
The clergymen singing
As up to the altar, couples do go
Said an unmarried mother to her handsome young lover
Oh to hell with the neighbours, let's go for the dough!

Now the Pope told us women
The pill it was something
Every good wife should turn down to her death
But with Ottawa sending us monthly reminders
It was one time his Holiness wasted his breath

Now we all get our catalogues each month from Eaton's
At six bucks a kid, we talk nothing but sex
We want our fur coats, our new skirts, and our sweaters
Our old men won't have strength left to pick up our cheque

We'll rant and we'll roar like true Newfoundlanders
Back to our bedrooms in droves we all go
Our backs may be aching, but the money we're making
And we'll all be a credit to Premier Joe!
"

True, I enjoy that also. Unfortunately, that end of Water Street still has poles so that's the only impression I'm getting Telephoto lenses are cool though. The Marriot right there, and it looks like the NL Credit Union is the next block over. When you're actually on the street, it feels like you can't even see one from the other they're so far apart. I mean, Habourside Park, the National War Memorial, are in between those two blocks and there's no sign of them.

I had never seen that Ocean Science Centre in SJ before. Interesting. If it had some more colour to it I could see it being the setting for a Wes Anderson movie.

It's a cute building. I haven't been in years (class trips in high school were probably the last time I was inside lol), but they had seals and touch tanks with all kinds of live sea creatures you could pick up. Can't see any of it in that pic above but it's in one of the steeper areas of the city's coastline.

Like this view:

The OSC would be at sea level over your right shoulder.
