Welcome back! Great day in St. John’s (again!) Today we finished up any final things we wanted / needed to do before we left for our Boat Cruise. I had wanted to visit the Newman Vaults for a while and today I finally did it and I was very pleased I did. The vaults really showed the progression and evolution of port storage throughout the history of the Newman company. The guide (a trained archeologist) was very knowledgeable and showed his dedication and passion for history.
At 12:45 we boarded the bus for Bay Bulls. After a quick tour in the gift shop we were ready for the real tour. Although it is getting late in the season for whales, the puffins, murres, gulls, razorbills and more were on Gull Island and Green Island by the thousands!
Before we went back to the hotel, we made a quick photo stop at Petty Harbour – a scenic and picture perfect pretty port!
