We pack our bags and escape off to sandy beaches, or other far-off spots, to enjoy the views and snap pics. We can drive right past, and not notice, the quiet appeal of Newfoundland towns right here. Sure, we know of the splendor of a huge panoramic view when you reach the top elevation of one of our local hiking trails. But if you stop your car where you don’t normally, if you walk where you haven’t before or drive to a Green Bay community that you haven’t been to in years… you might be surprised at the gems you can uncover.
On a recent cold winter day, when staying in the car could seem like the better option, the light conditions drew attention to another Newfoundland Water Street, in Pilley’s Island. A stroll, on impulse, down Water Street turned out to be the best part of the day.
If you don’t know Pilley’s Island well, Water Street curves along a cove. It provides both a wide view and photo opportunities where interesting houses sit smack on the water’s edge, with a road and steep bank behind them. Water Street, combined with the Pilley’s Island Heritage buildings, really makes this community a ‘must-drive’ in summer.
When was the last time you took a drive to Pilley’s Island?
