Another remarkable summer in Newfoundland

Another remarkable summer in Newfoundland paddling the coastline.

This photo is taken on a hill above the resettled community of Port Anne, or Burnt Island, Placentia Bay.

You can find some of my upcoming articles in Kanawa (paddling to resettled communities) and the Newfoundland Quarterly (some thoughts on industrialization of Placentia Bay). On a different note, two of my short stories, 'Last Call' and 'Products of Erosion,' were published this summer in Grimm Magazine and The Nashwaak Review, respectively.

Back to sea kayaking. Paddled in St. Mary's Bay, Newfoundland on the weekend and met a wonderful elderly gentleman, Clarence Dalton (of the former community of John's Pond). Clarence provided this riddle for us to solve. Have fun, think hard!

Three parts of a cross
One circle all around
Two semi circles and one stroke down
A triangle stood on its feet
Two semi circles and one circle complete
