This fine day brought me to what I’d consider one of the most enjoyable places on all the Avalon Peninsula, Cape St. Mary’s.
Unfortunately, like most days at Cape St. Mary’s the wind was South-Westerly and you couldn’t see the hand in front of your face.
Alas, I doubled back to a community called Branch. Growing up, I spent many a day fishing for sea trout off the wharf in Branch. It’s home to a lovely beach <em>(pictured)</em> and some of the friendliest people you’ll meet. Also, there’s a big basin where Branch River meets the sea. When it’s low tide the sheep will wander out on to the pods of grass. When it’s high tide, they’re like little castaways, alone on their islands.
They don’t seem to care.
