Canada & Alaska

Michele & Stephen's trip in 2012

St. John's, Newfoundland

It rains a lot in Newfoundland and we are currently in a very expensive, rain soaked camp site on the outskirts of St. John's the capital city of Newfoundland.

The main tourist attraction in St. John's is the Signal Hill National Historical Site, the view over the city and the harbour is magnificent. We visited it in the rain, and fog.

Our climb to the historic look-out (in the pouring rain) was well rewarded.

However down in the town some of the details on the historic houses were breathtaking.

Also in downtown St. Johns is reputedly the best pub in the world (in some survey or other). The ambience left something to be desired when we were there.

We managed to resist the draw of the many gourmet restaurants on the streets of St. John's.
