Newfoundland, Canada. Friendly, beautiful, rugged, wild, true Canada.

This is a neighbourhood in St. John’s, Newfoundland called ‘The Battery’. It’s a community of solid, salt of the earth folk who’ve built their homes right into the cliff face. More than one window that I peered into had a boulder in the livingroom.

Cabot Trail on Cape Bretan Island, Nova Scotia, Canada is one of those must do drives in this country. Bring a rain coat and fleece, leave the RV before heading into the hills and definatly don't bring up Old Smokey. Steep roads not for the faint of heart. Bring camera, hiking boots and binoculars. Visit fishing warfs along the way and stop in at the local food stops and try the the fresh sea chowder.
