Day Ten – Grand Falls-Windsor, NL to St. John’s, NL

Welcome back my virtual travellers!  Travelling from Grand Falls-Windsor, we spotted Gambo, home of Joey Smallwood (1900-1991), Newfoundland’s first premier.  We also stopped at the Gander airport to view the Kenneth Lochhead mural. The mural shows the flora and fauna and the people of Newfoundland without the addition of technology interfering too much into the images.

We have recovered from our Screech-In (right Ken, Diane, Doug and Carolynne?) and we have arrived in Canada’s oldest city as honorary Newfoundlanders!  Welcome to St. John’s – founded in 1583!

 

 

 

 

The Signal Hill Tattoo is an experience not to be missed in St. John’s.  The military tattoo tells the story of the Newfoundland regiment and the battles they fought. Here is a sample from this afternoon:

 

 

Making an “executive decision”, we went to Signal Hill (to take advantage of the warm, dry weather):

 

And a couple of our folks on tour around Signal Hill…

  1. Thanks for sharing … we have been enjoying the virtual tour so far!

  2. Good day Folks!

    Wow! John you are outdoing even yourself (if that is possible) in taking the most beautiful pictures!

    The picture of the Harbour and St. John’s looks like a postcard!

    Oh Signal Hill! What a great view of St. John’s.

    The day we visited Signal Hill the wind just about blew us off the Hill! Hang on to your hats at the top of Signal Hill! But even the wind is better in Newfoundland!

    What a great opportunity for you to watch the Signal Hill Tattoo!

    St. John’s! What a gem of a city!

    From reading John’s post, do a few of you Folks have a Screech Hangover? HA!

    Enjoy your time in St. John’s! It is such a warm and welcoming city!

    Weather update: It rained this morning for about 30 minutes. I think I could hear the Farmers cheering! Yeah rain! It is very dark and hopefully it will get more rain!

    Keep on busing!
