I stopped in Branch, a town on St. Mary's Bay. This is far enough south to be back in the same foggy misery 300 days a year as the areas from yesterday.

From there, my next stop was St. Bride's.

From St. Bride's you head straight north along the east coast of Placentia Bay.

Fittingly, the fog finally broke in Angel's Cove.

After that, you pass through Big Barasway and Little Barasway. Barasway is just bastardized from the French Barachois. These two little towns mark the entry into the areas that were settled and controlled by the French until the 1700s.

And then, Placentia/Plaisance. Set to the most famous francoterreneuvien (French Newfoundlander) singer.

I drove up to old Fort Louis, which is long-since ruined but used to defend the capital for the French.

And then I took a side road to Ship Harbour to see where Churchill and Roosevelt signed the Atlantic Accord.

Newfoundland is really big on roadside and cliffside memorials. You will run across dozens on any drive or hike.

Placentia Road Trip by R C, on Flickr

We're also hilariously developing world in many more ways than the obvious. It's quite easy to tell the border between electoral districts in Newfoundland if one hasn't voted for the government side in a few elections:

Placentia Road Trip by R C, on Flickr

A part of the highway has been renamed for our war dead, decorated with the Commonwealth's Poppy and our Forget-me-Not.

Back in the city for the evening...

Placentia Road Trip by R C, on Flickr

I didn't go to the nice areas like my first pictures from today, but my own neighbourhood. It's called Rabbittown but it's nicknamed Pajamatown because so many people wear them in public.

Placentia Road Trip by R C, on Flickr

The rain finally broke the heat this evening. I can just stay in the city tomorrow and don't have to flee to fog.

Nice update! 30C/86F is normal for summer for us, as you can imagine. Low- to mid-90s F is typical for us at this time of year.

Crazy that the whales swim so close to shore in that one area!

A few posts from the past few weeks. Any time references aren't accurate unless they match the photo title - too lazy to rewrite lol.

We went to Matturday Wright Live again tonight. Such a fun time. My favourite was buddy talking about starting a business where guys can rent dogs to hit on girls around town and if he doesn't get laid, the dog is put to sleep. "And people calls their dogs furbabies, sure that's not the same thing at all. It's not like when orphanages runs out of room they starts killing youngsters. At least, not that we know. Oh **** off with your gasping, if you loves them that much ******* adopt one." And buddy making fun of engagement photography, "Sure I'm friends with the biggest kind of downtownie girl, I don't think she ever set foot off Water Street, and her engagement photos is all on the wharf or in the woods. And she was the biggest slut around, my God, if I said her name half the guys in this audience would know her. And she's in a white sun dress with this innocent expression on her face like, "I wonder what dick tastes like?".

And missus, "Tinder is disappointing. Like, don't just tell me you have a big dick. That doesn't tell me anything. I need to know what that was like. I need to know how you got changed in the locker room in high school and the guys gasped and your nickname was horsedick and then somehow your teacher mentioned that to your mother and then she's worried, oh God, how is he going to treat women when he grows up, I need to talk to him about his horsedick, and I need to know how awkward those conversations were, and how embarrassed you were... you can still be a feminist and vulnerable with a big dick."

And the other missus from before, "So, all of you who have been here before me, but what you don't know: I'm gay. Yep, I came out in November. [APPLAUSE] That wasn't my parents' reaction. They're low key Trump supporters, so I figured revenge is as good a reason to come out as any - when he won, I told them."

Walking down to Bannerman Park for inclusivity training ahead of working the beer tent at the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival.









A few days later, walking down to the actual festival.



Nothing says lower class St. John's quite like a headband with a wedding dress lol.







It was freezing - fine in the sun, but a very cold breeze.







Then we had a nice hot stretch. People were out harvesting their cherry trees on Merrymeeting Road.



And then, today, pouring rain again.



The old City Club building has been restored.

















ALT Hotel, almost finished.



MIX Apartments coming along.



Crane for the Hilton on the horizon.

Went for a little walk this morning. It's overcast with rain, drizzle, and fog but also sunny. There's little wind, except for the strong gusts. It feels kind of like the city is in a washer-dryer combo.

This morning I went for a hike to the top of the Southside Hills.

Video Link


That's them on the horizon.

They're getting closer lol.

Southside Road ends at Fort Amherst (a lighthouse, old WWII structures, etc.) and it's from there that you enter the Deadman's Trail, which goes from Fort Amherst to Cape Spear. I only go up to the top of the hill, though, to see the city. Takes about an hour.

August 15, 2017 by R C, on Flickr

The houses out here (the neighbourhood is called Cahill's Point) are built right into the cliffs, like the Battery.

There are fairy forts on the hill. Make sure you take bread in your pocket or they'll get ya.
