Eastern Point Trail, Trout River NL

FeaturedEastern Point Trail, Trout River NL

Eastern Point trail begins not too far from this unique scene in Trout River.

 

Trout River, population 552, is located on the west coast of Newfoundland. We had a couple of hours between events at the nearby Writers At Woody Point event and decided to drive to Trout River. We did a little walkabout in the community and then hiked this trail.

 

Not a long hike (3 km return), but very picturesque with a variety of seascapes and wildflowers

 

 

We are all creative.

We are all artists of some kind.

some are better than others,

a few are geniuses.

But we all have a creative spirit.

Allow it to rise up.

Nurture it, challenge it.

Give it freedom.

Celebrate it.

Seeing this, I immediately thought of Newfoundland artist Gerry Squires.

Best known for his dramatic landscape paintings in oil and acrylic, as well as his portraits and surrealist paintings, Squires also worked as a sculptor, print maker and newspaper artist. Squires was born in Change Islands but spent much of his childhood on Exploits.        From a CBC News article October 4, 2015

Walking is good for solving problems – it’s like the feet are little psychiatrists.
