St. John's, Newfoundland

The police had blocked off Water Street, the main street in downtown St Johns, Newfoundland last Monday night and thinking there was an accident we investigated. Over a thousand people sitting under the stars watching a movie against a wall of a downtown building! Another tradition on the rock is cod & squid jigging! Leaving the dock at sunrise for the the cod jigging grounds, Captain Kevin White, a faumous cod jigger on the east coast of Newfoundland. Our limit for the day, and fresh fish for supper!

Yesterday we caught the ferry to Fogo Island and tested out two great hikes. One received a four star rating and the other a five star, it had stunning views over the ocean, lots of blueberries, caribou, rainbow, and a stunning sunset over looking the town of Fogo. Lunch was at the impressive Fogo Island Inn in Joe Batts Arm www.fogoislandinn.ca which was designed by Todd Saunders a local Newfoundlander but now residing in Norway.
