Our last Canadian port of call before departing Canada for several months was St. John’s, Newfoundland. Though I feel quite strongly that a one day stop over on a cruise ship does not constitute actually having visited a place, I was glad to at least get a glimpse of this iconic city.
As neither Karen or myself had ever been here before we had never really considered how isolated St. John’s is. Being the furthest east city in all of North America has certainly produced a very independent and self reliant group of people. The legendary hospitality was apparent even in our brief time on shore.
