Newfoundland, Day 5: Ferryland

Monday was an easy day, with my in-laws and I driving down to Ferryland (on the coast, South of St. John’s). We hiked out to the lighthouse where I did a few quick sketches. The fog was heavy and the cliffs, rocks and water below were hard to see, if we could see them at all. After our hike, we ate lunch at a small cafe called the Ferryland Cafe and Gifts. I had some onion soup with a home-made roll, followed by tea and a partridgeberry crumble with whipped cream. All yummy.

    Jess: It was indeed good! I forgot to mention that the lighthouse has a lunch basket-thing that you can buy, then take it out on the lawn and eat, but it wasn’t open the day we went. : (

    Jazz: Me too! Would be a great place to live, eh?
