Change Islands is on the northeast coast of Newfoundland and Labrador and is comprised of three islands, two of which are occupied. For more information on Change Islands please visit this link.

 

This fence caught my eye, as did the street signs in the shape of a fish.

Beautiful old United Church. The doors were unlocked so I actually got to see the interior.

 

 

Unique buildings which all have a curved roof.  This curved roof design  was common  on Change Islands but rarely found elsewhere in Newfoundland. The yellow house was a cottage built  in the early 1900’s by Walter and Raymond Torraville.

A patchwork roof….thrifty and eye pleasing.

Driving across the tickle (Newfoundland word for ‘narrow strait’) on the Spencer Bridge, this lovely pop of colour makes a welcoming statement.

This is not a walk where you would ever be bored.

 

While there I met some interesting people who have bought summer homes on Change Islands.  They love this place and enjoy the many opportunities for painting and photography. One of the people I met is a brilliant artist  Susan Abma    Susan graciously showed us some of her paintings. Please click the link to view some of her work.

  1. I enjoyed your blog post about Change Islands. The wriggle fence in the picture (unless there’s more than one) was crafted by a man in his late seventies. He used the same style of fencing to enclose most of his property. The old Salvation Army church belongs to his son and is used to store fishing gear. One memorable winter the shed was clean and organized and we had some wonderful parties. At one of them someone complained that the long bench she was sitting on was pretty uncomfortable. The reply came that the benches were originally meant for placing caskets on before a funeral and that the deceased didn’t really care how hard the boards were! 🙂
