Progress Can Be A Bummer
This was my favorite beach when I was a kid. Its just down the road from my grandparents house in Norman's Cove. I'd spend hours skipping rocks, catching conners, sculpins and flatties, having boil ups.....all the fun stuff us Newfie kids did to pass away the summer days. Last week I got out for a quick paddle in Chapel Arm, and I thought I'd paddle down to my old stomping ground, and when I rounded the point I was shocked to see a huge breakwater bulldozed down through the middle of it and the grassy field above the beach now graded over with crushed stone. Bummer.
