Welcome to Rocks of Newfoundland Labrador. Hope you enjoy your visit. Please come back and recommend Rocks of Newfoundland to your family and friends. We will be adding more pictures and info on rock formations.
Most of us had rocks that we played upon or we used a rock as a meeting place or as a focal point in a garden. The more I stop to think about it, I used rocks as a marker for my favorite fishing spot or as a marker when hunting or traveling in the country. There were rocks that I used as highway markers when driving up The Burin Peninsula.
I fished in such places at the holy stone and split rock. They bring back a lot of memories from my trouting experiences. There was a rock in a pond that I called Jeff’s rock. When my son was around seven years old I took him trouting with me back in the wilderness area on The Witless Bay Line. He ripped his rubber so I placed him on a rock a few feet from the shore. This was a boy’s dream spot. He caught a trout or had a bite on every cast and I kept baiting his hook. We caught our limit. From that day it is known to us as Jeff’s rock. We have been back there a few times since and we still talk about that day, on that rock. The following is a photo of one of my grandsons fishing from the same rock, forty years later. We had no luck on this day as there were two loons nesting in the pond. They eat and scare the trout as they move around the pond.
The photo below is the falls on Manuel’s River. You can click on the image to go to The Manuel’s River website. This was one of my favorite places to play as a young person and I still enjoy the falls and walking the trails. Memories galore here. I have walked the river from Squire’s Pond to Paddy’s pond.
