We spent the afternoon biking and wandering through Quidi Vidi, an old fishing village that is located next to St. John’s in a tiny harbour. There is also a little brewery there that makes Iceberg beer. Part of the wandering lead us to the waterfront of the downtown harbour in St. John’s. The George Street Music Festival starts this week, there are different musicians playing every night and George Street is blocked off. It is a street full of bars and restaraunts.
We met up with Darryl, Cheryl and Ben for supper at Classic Cafe then began our hike up the road through the old Battery, over the front deck of a homeowner to begin our way up the beaten pathway to Signal Hill. What a scenic hike! The trail is right on the edge of the cliff. When we wanted to look at the amazing view, we had to stop so we wouldn’t loose our footing.
It was breathtaking in any direction from we looked. At the coastline, back to the harbour, out to the ocean, back to the trail we just climbed, ahead to the Tower. So beautiful! To top it off, there was a perfect sunset to lead us down the trail. Thank you Darryl, Cheryl and Ben . . . it was a spectacular evening!
