I know I’m a day behind – I’ll hopefully catch up tomorrow. Here is a beautiful orange sunset ….
This picture was taken in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. Here is some information about this town.
It became a permanent settlement first in 1583 – perhaps the first permanent settlement in North America – earlier than St John’s and Jamestown.
In 1610 a pirate by the name of Peter Easton made it his home base. He is buried in a little graveyard in the town which looks like it could be featured in any horror film.
In 1932 Amelia Earhart left from Harbour Grace’s airfield on her solo voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.
Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker (aka Snoopy) also flew out of the Harbour Grace airfield.
There is a sailing ship, the SS Kyle, grounded on a shoal in the harbour. It has been there since 1967.
Here is an orange quilting photo. The back panel for my Mouthy Stitches bag.
