bonfire night

friday night was bonfire or guy fawkes night. small communities in newfoundland still have huge community fires where all the autumn leaves and branches (and old furniture and tires etc.) are piled together and burned. the hills that surround corner brook are dotted with fires and the air is filled with wood smoke. but friday night was rainy and very windy and most of the fires were cancelled. so here's a photo i love of eamon and i at the cabin a few summers ago instead.

Hi Shawn,
I have so many memories of doing that when I was growing up ... St John's would be lit up. We still have the odd one around here, even though it needs to be small or the fire department is all over us. There is something so peaceful!
Very best wishes,
