Sunset scene in Avalon, one day when the sky wasn't gloomy and there was some nice light.

a place easily lost to wandering and time - a place of mythology and probably gigantic mosquitoes. It is very beautiful.

Thanks Piet. The light was pretty wonderful. No mosquitos but in Newfoundland they had some tiny but terrible biting flies that I would swap for mosquitos any day.

where I live now, I have to agree with you about biting flies - blood eating deer flies attack relentlessly - I have grown to hate them almost as much as lying politicians.

There is only one store in the southern half of Newfoundland that is larger than a gas station, and folks were lined up at Mona’s to buy head-to-toe suits made of netting strong and fine enough to keep them out. They are tiny but can pop you through a thick jacket or jeans.

they sound worse than my deer flies, (though the beasts will mob you). I wonder if I can find something like that... I have a hat with netting over it, and a sweat jacket (that gets very sweaty), and sweat pants, and then only my hands are exposed - and then I can mow the lawn. (strangely, they don't come up the deck). It works, but get too hot. mmmm.. I wonder if my wife would catch me if I stole her nylons
