We had a great run today in near perfect weather. My apologies for not being a great writer.
Of course we had to begin at the visitor's centre up on Signal Hill
28709

After a leisurely cup of hot chocolate at the Newfoundland Chocolate company we departed for the old railway station in downtown St. John's. This one is actually the "new" station as the "old" station was further East under Signal Hill behind the hotel Newfoundland. First we stopped at the static display, roughly where the turn table used to be, and then outside the station itself. The station has been converted in to a museum with some very good displays inside and a mock up of the interior of the rail cars.

Next it was a jaunt to our next stop further to the West in Avondale.

After looking over the train here we headed for a Whitbourne which was the first town in Newfoundland to be built in the interior.

It was too nice of a day to end such an enjoyable time so we decided to head north along the Eastern Side of Trinity Bay to Heart's Content, the site of the Eastern terminus of the first trans-Atlantic cable.

Then it was a cruise all the way back home. It was a shame that none of these museums were open during our visits.

Yes, thank you for this great post! I too enjoy that snowplow! That is made for SERIOUS work!

Good pictures, too! I really enjoy the different ways that buildings have been made across our country over time, and I am a bit surprised that the Avondale hotel is still there!

I like the weathering in the stone, and I appreciate the story that it tells as well. I have a child that will never understand how this world even existed before the Internet!
