Imagine living here

Today was busy and I didn't get home in time to get good pictures of what I knit over the weekend so: let's look at some gorgeous views in Placentia, Newfoundland & Labrador!

We were booked into stay into a super cute B&B there, and as soon as we checked in we went for a walk along the water across the street.

Can you imagine if this was your daily walk?  Or, better still, if this was a regular visit for you and your nice blue boat?

I guess in theory one can get tired of anything... even candy (no really, it's true)... but it's hard to think of not loving a view like this twenty years after you started to see it every day.

The colours and shapes of the rocky landscape remind me of a heaped up sweater... you too, or is it just a sign that I should be knitting one again?

The water was so, so glassy the day we visited.  And how lush is this bit going to be when the leaves come out?  Or - ohhh, when they change colour in the fall... yum.

After this walk we went up to the Castle Hill fort site and looked down.  So much better than looking up, which I found totally scary because there was nothing higher than where we were.  Also, you know: SUPER PRETTY.

What do you think?  If you lived here, would you knit more because you'd be relaxed and inspired, or knit less because you'd be distracted and wanting to hike?  (I assume for the purposes of this casual survey that all economic pressures are null and void.)

In other news: I am soooo going to sit down and knit right now.  Fingers crossed I can show you tomorrow.  Till then, take care of yourself!

I have been imagining living in a place similar to that but along the coast in northern California. My son lives in Eureka, about 300 miles north of San Francisco. Within a few miles of his home, there is the same craggy coastline with redwood trees and ferns right down to the beach. It is so beautiful! I can't wait to move up there. I just need a job in the area to fuel my dream. And, yes, a great atmosphere for knitting.

WOW, that sounds amazing Gina! The coastline there has always appealed to me too (though sadly, I've only seen it in pictures.) Just gorgeous - fingers crossed you can make it happen!
