Winds of Change

Our morning expedition was to Cape Spear, the easternmost point of land in Canada (and North America), through damp and foggy conditions. Upon arrival, and as we prepared to disengage the kids from their carseats, the cold and biting wind got the better of us and we changed plans. We returned to St. John's the scenic way, passing through Blackhead, Maddox Cove, Petty Harbour and Bay Bulls. The land and seascapes were incredible to behold and the warming sun brightened through the day.

We motor toured through downtown St. John's, glimpsing Naomi Centre for Women, where Shelley worked in our time here; and looped around Quidi Vidi Lake, glimpsing Quidi Vidi Brewery, whose brews I quaffed in our time here. Although I'm still on the lookout for their "Hibernia Cream Ale" which seems to have been discontinued, they seem to be quite excited about their Iceberg Beer. Maybe it's time for their Honey Brown right now ... pffpt!
