Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?
It’s tea for me, from a thermos on the East Coast Trail.
Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?
The Quidi Vidi Inn of Olde. Heated with wood, it’s a curiosity shop with a bar. Hosted by the congenial Linda.
Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?
‘For the Record’, it’s Fred’s. Otherwise, yard sales and flea markets in search of the elusive NL vinyl. When I need a cap, it’s Chafes and Sons, Water Street, St. John’s - ‘The Smart Shop For Men’.
Where in Newfoundland would we stand to see your favourite view?
Anywhere on The Skerwink Trail… spectacular coastal scenery in Trinity Bay.
Name 3 things I’ve gotta do when I visit Newfoundland & Labrador:
1. Hike the East Coast Trail. Watch for whales, icebergs, and plunge-diving gannets!
2. View a play at Rising Tide Theatre, Trinity.
3. Spend a weekend at the NL Folk Festival in Bannerman Park, St. John’s.
What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?
The open space, the fresh air, the clean water, the wilderness, the natural beauty. And the earthy people, history and culture - especially the music. It’s my home. It’s where I want to be!
