the cabin (guest post by dd)

Today’s blog post is courtesy of my 13yr old daughter. She took all the photos and did the writing when she spent this past weekend with my parents at their cabin. Leave her a comment to let her know if you liked this post!


Hey itโ€™s me!

As you have probably guessed I am the DD of Marlayne and I am the guest blogger!

When I go out to the cabin in Trinity Bay, it is always such a nice feeling to be out and about with family. I always have an awesome time being out in the fresh, crisp air. The first thing I do when we arrive, is either go on the buoy swing next to the cabin, or go out for a walk on the beach. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous! This time, it looked as if the sky is reflected perfectly on the water.



Ever since we moved to Newfoundland, I have been anticipating a visit to the falls! It is a tiny little swimming (and occasionally showering!) water fall area. We go almost every time we come out to the cabin. Unfortunately, the first time we came out, it wasnโ€™t quite hot enough to go in! So this time I was very excited to go!!! It is always cold, and loud, but absolutely beautiful. We usually bring the shampoo (lol) but this time was just a swim!

After an awesome day, we finished with bologna and beans. We were planning a quick fishing trip but the tide was not right, so instead we went out for a quick walk on the beach to watch the sunset. It was really special! (And gorgeous)


Every time I come out to the cabin, I feel completely relaxed, and most of all, I feel special.

Home really is where the heart is.
