Sep 15, 2017 - Signal Hill etc.

Another sunny day in St. John's and still more to see. We started our day at Signal Hill which is another National Historic Site so more red chairs. The Cabot Tower stands on this Hill and it was built in 1897 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of John Cabot's historic voyage as well as the 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Victoria. Wow, it is amazing that the building is still standing and being used. We entered, took the narrow stairs, admired the view and captured a few pictures from the top. Our picnic lunch was at the top of...

Jul 8, 2017 - Marine Park (6/27 - 7/5/17)

The reason we are in Newfoundland: Tim's sister, Joanne is an avid hiker. She has hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Coast Trail, to the top of the highest peak in each state, hiked across Spain, hiked across England, etc. This year the trip was to Newfoundland to hike the East Coast Trail with her two hiking buddies, Cindy and Gordon. Since we are free to travel where we want, we decided to make this our trip. We brought some of the gear in our RV and are helpful shuttling them about. Glad we got to do this. First let me tell you a...

Today we drove the peninsula north of St. John’s we found many beautiful villages. We drove through Torbay to Flatiron a quaint village that has a beautiful harbour and then onto Pouch cove.

People come from all around the province to partake. We can attest to the quality and wonderfulness of the fish and chip, they are the best we have had. We thought the portion...

Aug 23, 2009 - North Loop above St John's

We had a cloudy day and took the short drive north of St John's. We're getting jaded - more vistas, fishing villages, quaint towns... We did notice Newfies can put up Christmas decorations, but aren't too good at taking them down. We have seen decorations up all over the province, but the icing on the cake was the reindeer and Santa on a polar bear. Maybe they're just anxious for Christmas to come again? But it's just August.

Sep 9, 2008 - Every shade of Blue

A day spent driving the Avalon Peninsula - Tuesday, September 9 Hannah dumped some wind and rain on us so yesterday we stayed in and worked on journaling and finances. By this morning it was time to get out again, and the sun was shining brilliantly, so we headed out to see more of the Avalon Peninsula. It is the southeasternmost peninsula of Newfoundland’s many peninsulas, and like all the others this one has it’s own character and beauty to distinguish it. We drove a 70 mile loop that started and ended in St. John’s. It first took us...
