"Inching My Way To The Water"
Innukshuk At Ferryland

As I inch my way to the water I visit it frequently. I've been on vacation for two weeks now and as it winds down I am readying for my kayak outing. It has been a month since I've been in one and well I've just been preoccupied with other things , namely photography and relatives and such. It was a nice hiatus but I must get back into the boat and one such outing that had me drooling to be there , was a picnic in Ferryland on the south coast of the Avalon Peninsula.

I encourage you to visit the lighthouse their and go on a gourmet picnic offered during the summer months. It was $55.00 for two people. It included a basket with picnic blanket and gourmet sandwiches that included curried chicken in a magnificent sauce on homemade brown bread and a seafood sandwich with shrimp, scallops and such also on homemade bread, two lemonades freshly squeezed, and two desserts of spice cake with ginger cinnamon sauce and a type of pound cake with another sauce that was to die for. The quintessential thing about all this is that every piece of food has the most delicious unique taste. Hmmmm, hmmm. Maybe back again before it shuts down. The view is spectacular at Ferryland head and the lighthouse there provides an ambiance of coastal eloquence and charm nestled with the ferocity of the open North Atlantic waters with seaside smells and flavors to tantalize not only the taste buds but all yar senses.

Sit beneath this lighthouse and be enchanted with the charm that is the Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula.
