OC - it's great to see some of your local area again... looks like you had then, the weather I've had today! Hope summer's not over ...yet!!

Are the cabins for boats or for staying over in? Looks intriguing..

Tricia, those are used sort of like sheds. Fishing nets, tackle and all sorts of things were stored in them. I expect that at one time fishing nets were repaired inside them, etc. Now a days a lot of men still build one on their property, put a wood stove in and they are often used as gathering places for their men friends on weekends, telling yarns and having a few beers. In fact there's a song about "sheds" sung by Buddy What's his Name and the Other Fellows. It's funny... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ_83AFyb4M

I have a friend who's husband is originally from Newfoundland. After many years in New Brunswick, they moved to Clarenville and are very happy there. I don't know if that is any where near you O.C.

Ali, Clarenville is an hours drive from me. It's a pretty area.

ah... thanks for the explanation of the huts OC.

Sounds rather like the Canadian equivalent of the British 'garden shed'... dens with kettles etc. where men escape to :)

Oh,it looks so deliciously wet there! And everything is so green. What beautiful gray skies...we're so parched here in Southern California we're about ready to dry up and blow away. Lots of clouds this summer, but no rain. Wouldn't it be nice if the weather would balance out so everybody would get enough sunshine and enough rain?

Blessings,

Victoria

Only Buddy I can think of is Buddy Holly and The Crickets?

Tricia, that's the name of the group "Buddy What's his Name and the Other Fellas".

Love the song!

Your area is beautiful, it reminds me, slightly, of Scandinavia.

I hope that you are well?
