Signal Hill Sunset

A perfect way to end an adventure filled weekend [not to mention the last weekend in August]. Sunset at the top of Signal Hill. I am slowly but surely getting through all of the photos I've taken over the past few weeks but I couldn't resist sharing these right away.

Fell in love with a Boler

On my walk to work this morning I spotted a very cool Boler parked in a driveway. My mom has always loved Bolers [along with VW vans] and apparently [after my reaction to seeing one this morning] I love them too! I came across some of their old brochures [1974] that I had to share. I love the arial view shots!

Art School Cliché Spotting

Very entertaining site dedicated to spotting Art School Clichés. 
Off to download the app!

St. John's Staycation

I took my first stay-cation this year and it was incredible. My mom [and a few other special visitors] made her first visit to St. John's. Between the hiking, boat tours, great food, whales and puffins there was a point where I had to remember that I actually live here! When you get caught up with working so much sometimes you forget to really enjoy the place you live and what it has to offer. 

From top left clockwise, a perfect morning for a signal hill hike, Cape Spear light house, exploring Cape Spear, a very Foggy but still delicious lunch at Ferryland Lighthouse Picnics, can't not take pictures of those colourful row houses, the girls on board O'brien's boat tours.

Broadway... well worth the wait in line!

More pics from NYC! Radio City Music Hall, Pre Broadway show, cardboard cut-outs of the stars [no cameras aloud in the theatre] and top of the rock! Poster in the top right corner designed by Heads of State. 

A few things we learned... There is a second TKTS booth! At the corner of Front and John. Still a tiny bit of a lineup but nothing compared to the times square booth. We opted for a visit to the top of the rock over the Empire State Building. The line ups are much shorter [we actually didn't even wait in a line up] and the views are still spectacular!

City that never sleeps

I wasn't sure what to expect, weather wise, upon arriving in New York. Aside from a few random rain showers we couldn't have asked for better days to be walking around the city that never sleeps... and walk we did. There was not a half hour left unexplored. From Broadway to Off-Broadway, Hells Kitchen to Central Park.

I thought it would be fun to create fun vintage inspired photo boards to post some pics of the trip. Below, some famous NYC landmarks. More boards to come!

New York, New York!

Finally getting back to normal life after a whirlwind past couple of weeks! Between an amazing stay-cation with special visitors to a fabulous long weekend in New York with my two best ladies, it was a jam packed! I am surprisingly rested and refreshed! Lots of posts to come that will include pics of the trip and lots of updates on projects I am working on.
