08-19-14 St John’s Area

After a storm windy night/morning – the clouds cleared and it was time to re-explore a bit.  Of course it was to Costco first for lunch….. Then back to Signal Hill which guards the entrance to St John’s Harbor – a narrow neck entrance.

Look just what pulled out of the harbor… This is a supply boat going out to oil rigs.IMG_1734

Then back to Cape Spear Lighthouse for grand views.  The “New” Lighthouse as well as the Old one.

The blue waters and crashing waves are always a delight.

The “Fireweed” is nearing its top.  Summer is on the way out.  We will leave Newfoundland on Thursday back to Sydney, Nova Scotia.

What great memories of NF –  Newfoundland may be a rocky island, covered with trees and small lakes, and wonderful little coastal fishing towns, but it is the warmth of the people that make it so special.
