Brigus, NF 8-10-14


We strolled around town enjoying the many very old and some new homes  A bit of history – Brigus is the 2nd oldest English settlement in Newfoundland -- 1612.  Neighboring Cupids in 1610.  Homes were built along the shores and among the rocks.  Roads are narrow and mostly just one lane in and about town.

And a wonderful tour of the last house picture --- The woman who shared her home was related to Bob Bartlett – famous sea captain of early 1900’s – in fact he sailed to the North Pole with Adm Byrd and was friends with Pres Teddy Roosevelt.  Many historic pieces were shared.  A delightful visit.
