winter wonder

this feature was planned before the COVID-19 virulent strain showed up in NL, thus the presence of socially distant people in the first couple of videos.  


it's winter. no worries!

WinterWonder is here to share how local companies, outdoor action, and just a bit of cozy will warm up winter 2021.   

when the snow is past your knees, go out and cook in it. 

we welcomed winter with a bile up at Pippy Park, and boiled the kettle with a neat little stove kit!

looking forward to sharing all kinds of other cool and cozy winter fun.  check back for:
