Transatlantic — Quidi Vidi, Water Street, and around


Afternoon return to Cape Spear—New Lighthouse

Our van tour may seem a little redundant, as we returned to Cape Spear later that afternoon on our way back to St. John. But the advantage to making the same stop at different times is different lights and shadows. You’ll see more of what I mean on Wednesday with additional photos of the Old Lighthouse at Cape Spear, but until then the photo above is of the New Lighthouse there. Below are views of St. John’s taken from a distance:

One of our afternoon stops was in an absolutely charming and colorful fishing community on the outskirts of St. John’s known as Quidi Vidi, pronounced by locals as ‘Kiddy Viddy’:

A popular dog breed in Newfoundland, as you may have guessed by now, is the Newfoundland, or ‘Newfie’ as it is sometimes called. These guys are simply massive, but every one we encountered seemed incredibly fond of people and wanting of attention:

Heading back into St. John’s we made a stop on colorful Water Street for some picture taking opportunities:

But the highlight of the afternoon was, in my view, Quidi Vidi with a dramatic stone cliff backdrop:
