Taste of the Maritimes
Goofie Newfie is a pub and grill in Fergus, Ontario, and this relatively small mural is tucked behind the restaurant on its patio overlooking the Grand River.
For those of you who live outside of Canada, a Newfie is someone who comes from the southern part of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada's most eastern province. Newfoundland is an island and, as you might expect, they eat a lot of seafood. YUM!
Many Newfies have a fantastic sense of humour who enjoy poking fun at themselves (and sometimes the rest of Canada too). The name Goofie Newfie is an example of their kind of humour.
I am joining Monday Mural HERE
Oh, how fun!! They sound like "my" kind of people! I do love people with a sense of humor -- these days we all need the best one we can have!! I hope you have a great new week!!
I like those Newfies already. Great photos EG.
very cute mural.
Nice mural - an original Canadian one!
Newfoundland - I have flown over it, dreamt of going to school there too :)
Have a Beautiful Day, Tina!!
Don't remember the Newfies being goofy. But I know gander was a most welcome stop on several international flights.
I'd like to go to Newfoundland and this post makes it sound all the more interesting. I like the mural, too.
Love the name :)
