Jul 19, 2015 - Bay Roberts

Sue and Annie were up early this morning so all three of us headed for Bay Roberts for the 10:00 a.m. 10K. St. John’s lies on the east side of Conception Bay. Bay Roberts lies across the bay on the west side of Conception Bay and is an hour away from St. John’s. It is an hour and ten minutes from our campground. We had a little trouble finding the start of the race but were there in plenty of time.

Stopped at Harbor Grace, where we parked Hogan under a wing...

Sep 19, 2005 - Kira and her Nfld dog adventures (Lynn)

Hi everyone! We are in St. John's, Nfld which is such a gorgeous harbour city. It has the history of Signal Hill and Cabot Tower where Marconi sent out his first wireless signals across the Atlantic and boasts the Eastern most tip of North America. We went to the small town of Brigus the other day...approximately 2 blocks by 2 blocks in area...and positioned on a gorgeous small harbour. It has American roots in that Cape Cod settlers moved here and their influence on the architecture is evident. There were no tourists other than the three...
