    Muscovy Duck In My Backyard Merritt BC

    Muscovy Duck in my backyard Merritt, BC. This morning we had a visitor perched on our fence. Thinking it was a goose of some kind, and wondering where it came from. While thinking of dinner, stuffing, and all the fixings for a moment.  I soon realized this beautiful bird was not wild but domesticated. Surely,  someone was missing this large bird here in the Nicola Valley. BC   Albeit, the goose turned out to be a duck, a large duck known as a "Muscovy. Duck."   As it turns out,   Muscovy Ducks make great pets. easily trained, affectionate, and also love to cuddle. Learning that these beautiful birds are omnivores,  and love vegetables make it easy to love them.  Living here in Merritt, BC Canada is never boring, especially when a feathered friend drops in. Most important, the Muscovy Duck is safe and snug at home.

    The Newfoundland and Labrador Mindset - Mindfulness as an Important Aspect of Wellness Tourism

    On the first day of Spring, Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism officials have unveiled the Newfoundland and Labrador "Mindset"; a collection of mindfulness cards that invite Canadians to spend a moment in Newfoundland and Labrador. I am excited and honoured to be collaborating on this new initiative. I will be revealing cards on my social media accounts and practicing mindfulness in beautiful locations around the province.  

    Mindfulness has grown in popularity in recent years, and I feel like a lot of the practice aligns well with the way we've always lived our lives here. The collectors set includes 42 cards and is comprised of 2 categories: Inspire and Imagine.  Inspire cards offer words of wisdom from around the province and Imagine cards are designed to spark viewers imagination and picture themselves resting, relaxing and enjoying the laid back lifestyle here on the East Coast.  With so many things to see and do in the province it is also important to slow down, be mindful and soak up every beautiful moment. 

    Research shows that it takes 21 days to form a habit. So over the next 3 weeks I'll be sharing cards and practicing mindfulness in beautiful and unique locations around the island. The Digital version may be viewed at NLMindset.ca. If interested you can follow along on my social media accounts on Instagram @nlcoastaladventures and Facebook @ Newfoundland and Labrador Coastal Adventures.

    Quidi Vidi Village, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada is a peaceful Winter paradise located not far from downtown St. John's.  The locals refer to the inlet as "the gut" and there are many picturesque fishing sheds and stages visible under the cliffs which are popular with photographers.
    The Quidi Vidi Brewery and taproom is shown overlooking the water at the beginning of the video and the Quidi Vidi Artisan Studios can also be seen at the end.  The Brewery and Taproom have live music and some pub food from a food truck on site.  The Artisan Studios has 10 year round resident Craftspeople and welcomes visitors to meet the makers, see the process and value quality craftsmanship.
