It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!

With a series of T-storms rolling through I headed up the hill to catch an approaching storm front. After the storm passed the sky was painted with nature's prism! Storm Clouds getting closer! From my driveway. Back Shore Rainbow! Another view Flowers and a fading rainbow over Brace Cove. Celebrating the sun at Good Harbor Beach! Beacon Marine crane. Building looks pink in the orange glow of the sunset. Reflection of a sunset. Beacon Marine Basin Dory Dory in the foreground. Harbor sunset Lone gull Back home I turn back and capture the sky.
