To those who don’t want to see travel photos on a farm blog, please accept my apologies and skip this one. But we are enjoying St. John’s, Newfoundland, and I wanted to share a few photos for those interested.
We have found St. John’s to be larger and more scenic than we expected. Despite the downturn in the price of oil, it is also seems more prosperous than we expected. Further contrary to our expectations, there was a lot more landscaping and well treed neighbourhoods than we thought that we would find on the “Rock.”
Tomorrow we leave the city for the Conception Bay area. The farmer in us is wanting to see some farms and, apparently, there are a few (but very few) farms in Newfoundland and some in that area. We also are wanting to see more of the scenery of this part of Canada and, perhaps, Ted, find a colony of seabirds.
In the meantime, here are a few shots in St. John’s and vicinity.
On our way down the Hill, we noticed this freighter leaving the port, so we rushed back up to see it go through the narrows.
Yesterday, we did a day trip south of the city, visiting Cape Spear, the easternmost part of North America and the lighthouse and Colony of Avalon at Ferryland.
