So just a few weeks ago Dru and I got to head out to Port Rexton for the weekend, and seeing as how I definitely wasn’t missing the opportunity to go I actually ended up working all night and after getting off at 4am, went home to shower and pack the car and we headed out by 6. Sleep when your dead, right?
In short, Port Rexton is amazing. If you ever get the chance to go through, you’ve definitely got to check out The Fishers Loft Inn (it was the owners of the Loft and their family who were awesome enough to put us up for the weekend), and the whole place including the new conference centre they’ve expanded to add is gorgeous to say the least. They’ve even began a partnership with the gallery I work in at Grenfell to include artwork from students in throughout the rooms & buildings that visitors are free to buy if they like too. It’s HUGE to see that such a place isn’t just looking to support the tourism industry, but local artists as well.
The photos above are from Port Rexton and the surrounding towns including Bonaventure, Bonavista, Cape Bonavista, Elliston, and so on. There was so much to check out you’d definitely need a few days to see it and appreciate it!
I could go on and on easily, but to put it simply the whole weekend was a very “cheesecake for breakfast” kind of deal. That is if you like cheesecake of course. If you don’t, theres something wrong with you though. It was unreal, and I really hope to go through again this summer and check it out again soon!
