……………… when I spend it walking I am pleasantly tired. In Praise of Walking by Thomas A. Clark
Twillingate is fast becoming my new favourite place. Its beautiful landscape, amazing trails, thoughtful architecture, vibrant arts community, Crow’s Nest Café, Anchor Inn, Long Point Lighthouse, talented musicians (and yes there are other kinds!) and the new Unscripted Digital Arts Festival all combine to make an outport community that is building a future while maintaining a soul.
Having moved from the city back to the small outport community where I was born, I was a little concerned how I would find places and venues to meet my cultural needs. I had to look no further than Twillingate which has the added bonus of many great hiking trails.
Almost every evening you will find 5 or 6 photographers from all over the world gathered with their tripods on this little headland by Sleepy Cove trying to capture the sunset, whales, surf, icebergs or just the total experience of this magnificent place.
“In the course of a walk we usually find out something about our companion, and this is true even when we travel alone.” Thomas A. Clark
Plan to attend in September 2016 Festival – Unscripted Twillingate.
