Portland Newfoundland!

Little cove near Portland

Lousy roads

A lame sign showing they know the problem but aren't fixing it...

Newfoundland speedbumps!

Yet another Portland, too small to show up on Lonely Planet's map! Now you have three Portlands to choose from!

A brief word about the main highway many are lousy. Often the government appears to just give up and put a sign that indicates "lousy road" instead of trying to actually fix the problem. Add to that the extra excitement of worrying about moose; all the locals have at least one harrowing moose-hitting-car story in which noone seems to win. This happens so often that the locals refer to them as "Newfoundland speedbumps!"
