Day 14: Happy Birthday Canada!
July 17, 2017
Good intentions are there…we get up at 4:30 a.m. only to see it is pouring outside. We wish Canada Happy Birthday, from our warm bed lol.
(Ha! This photo was taken the day before obviously..)
We visit The Rooms later in the afternoon. Again, a must for anyone visiting St John’s. The newest permanent exhibition: Remember Them as We Do is very moving. It pays tribute to the Newfoundlanders and Labradorians at War and at Home 1914-1949.
Tonight we think of our family celebrating Jim and Jeanine’s 50th wedding anniversary. Wish we could be there… Happy anniversary Jim and Jeanine. Wish you all a fun celebration!
We have supper at Oliver’s. Again, no reservation, no supper (except at the poutinerie next door maybe…)
Tomorrow, we fly to Ontario. Cannot believe it is our last day in this beautiful province. Where else is everyone so friendly and welcoming! We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. We will be back :
-To drive to l’Anse aux Meadows and see the Viking Village.
-To tour the Burin Peninsula. The communities of Colinet, Grand le Pierre, Brunette Island, Point Enrage, Beau Bois, Port au Bois, Presque, Jacques Fontaine, and Saint Annes certainly reveal some French influence.
-To travel the Irish Loop on the Avalon Peninsula. Because it is over 300 km, we would have needed another 2 days in St John’s.
So yes, to do so much more. Still Lots2see!!
