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.
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.
