We spent 10 days in Newfoundland in August, which was:
a) The longest vacation of my life
b) A short enough time that we had to make some tough choices
But our crackerjack team (the Dear Man, his Dear Sister, and her Dear Husband, and I)… we were up to the challenge.
Natural beauty, especially coastline
