Petty Harbour, Newfoundland

explore-petty-harbourFor the most part I kept my blog updated for the majority of the time I was home, minus the last 2 weeks. I’m probably stating the obvious here, but I clearly didn’t want people to realize our house in California was empty, even though a few of our neighbours were keeping a watchful eye. I mean, you never know. Especially due to me watching all these horror flicks on cable at my parents house. Definitely creepy thoughts have burrowed into my head of what could happen.

Meanwhile, let’s talk about some of the sights from my home town of St. John’s, Newfoundland (It’s in Canada for those who are geographically challenged like myself). Surrounding the city are multiple harbours, tiny towns, and quaint coves to explore.

My Mom and I took off on an afternoon one weekend to check out Cape Spear, and a few kilometres down the road from that is the smallest fishing town perfectly nestled away, called Petty Harbour. Known for its famous fish ‘n chips Chafe’s Landing, and home to musician Alan Doyle, lead singer of Great Big Sea, you can’t help but take in the exquisite views that east coast Canada has to offer.

  1. @Janice: Thanks Aunt Janice! As you know (but most people reading here, don’t) – the Green/White/Pink colours on that shed was the same colours used in the Republic Of Newfoundland flag in the 1800’s. The Republic Of Newfoundland colours is a very popular ‘thing’ in Newfoundland – I see that flag everywhere! Thanks for commenting, glad to see you’re still enjoying my blog.

  2. Petty Harbor looks like such a lovely, quaint little place. Being an island girl I do love any place by the water though. Thanks for the photo tour.
