St. Bernard's
A very nice view of St. Bernard's taken on 14 August 2003 from atop the high hill northeast of the town. The house in which we stayed is circled in this detail. The settlement is the terminus of a twelve-kilometer road off the main highway going down the Burin Peninsula (unlike some Newfoundland outports that lack altogether direct vehicular access).

My abode #8

Our House
Built in 1904, John and Susan Adamson raised in this house four children: Ada, Della, Nelson, and Rhea. After Susan died in 1963, Ada continued to live here until her own death in 1973, after which Ray Jafelice and his family took over. It became our home on 3 October 1978.

Harbour Mille

St. Mary's
This Anglican church is a detail from a panoramic view of Harbour Mille, Newfoundland that I took through the front windshield of a moving truck on 10 August 2003 (looking southwest from the road shown here). When I googled Harbour Mille just now, I came across this "sea stack" picture that seemed very familiar: Here is my photo.
