Historic Grand Bank

It seems the older I get, the more I treasure the chance to travel around this province. Even when I visit a Newfoundland community I’ve been in before, it’s as if I see it with new and more appreciative eyes.

Earlier this week, I accompanied Paul on one of his little road trips for work, this time on the Burin Peninsula Heritage Run. Our destination was the vibrant town of Grand Bank. I hadn’t been there in over a decade.

It was a rainy trip. But Good Fortune smiled down, the sun came out as soon as we got there, and so did my trusty camera.

The authentic old buildings and heritage architecture I found especially charming. I’ll let the pictures tell the story of what I loved about historic Grand Bank.

  1. Jennifer what a beautiful town. I love the vivid colours of the buildings and the landscape. Awesome murals and quaint cafe’s. Sometimes I like to stop at the smaller towns on my way to the big city. Especially the ones by the sea. The light house shot is gorgeous.

  2. Jennifer, I love how colorful the buildings are (they rival fall colors). In towns my favorite thing to drive by, besides gardens, is character buildings. In nature I love driving by bodies of water and through forests and mountains. Thank you for sharing some of my favorite things.

  3. These photos are gorgeous. I’d love to go to Newfoundland someday. I often road trip to my mother’s house in New Hampshire. The drive on the New York turnpike is a bit dull, but once I get off at Troy, the rest of the way weaves through the mountains into New Hampshire. Is always lovely.
