A Cabin in the Countryside

One of the many wonders of living in Rural Newfoundland & Labrador is the ability to get away from it all by venturing across the highway on a snowmobile and heading to the cabin – even if it is only 5 or 10 minutes away and still has access to cell coverage.

I am grateful to my aunt and uncle for letting me stay at their cabin. It was my first time in the woods and on snowmobile in years. There is something wonderful about being surrounded by trees, snow, the old wood stove crackling and pond water boiling to have a spot of tea.

This was my two friends first experience in a Newfoundland cabin and on snowmobile. I hope they enjoyed riding around the pond and trail that evening. I did not realize how the snow on the trees were something that one had not seen before, as in Switzerland the snow would blow away from the limbs. My friend had taken several images.

The woods is the perfect get-a-way. I understand why many ruralites go to the cabin for the weekend to really enjoy the beauty of nature. The warmth from the wood stove made for great conversation as we planned out a supper of moose meat and a Screech-in.

If you have the opportunity, spend some time in nature and truly appreciate the peacefulness and wonder of it all.

Stay tuned for more tales from the forest.
