Quidi Vidi Village

BoatMinutes from downtown St. John’s is Quidi Vidi Village. Quidi Vidi was known for once being a historic fishing village. The neighbourhood is named for both Quidi Vidi Lake (where the Royal St. John’s Regatta is held the first Wednesday in August, weather permitting) and Quidi Vidi Harbour – known locally as “The Gut”. Located in Quidi Vidi is the Quidi Vidi Battery Provincial Historic Site, which had significance as a battery during the War of 1812. The village is also home to Newfoundland’s largest microbrewery, the Quidi Vidi Brewing Company. It has many different types of plants and animals. There are numerous scenic places to visit.
With ten unique, active artisans working in their studios at the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation, there is always something new to discover. Buying fine craft is always a pleasure – but especially so when you can chat with its maker, get to know their process, and see all the hard work and unique processes that go into the crafting of their product.
It was our point of interest on Easter Monday. On sunny morning there were no any signs of weather trouble. However by the time of our coming the snowstorm appeared from nowhere. It was like a blizzard. But in 20 minutes it flew away with the wind as fast as came. After that we had lovely short trip around the Village.Family

Cape Spear

National Historic ParkCape Spear, located on the Avalon Peninsula near St. John’s, Newfoundland, is the easternmost point in Canada. Cape Spear is close to Blackhead, an amalgamated area of the City of St. John’s, about 1.86 miles (3 km) away.
It was still wintery on Easter Day there. However it was sunny and surprisingly quiet and made hiking and sightseeing pretty comfortable.

St. John’s, Newfoundland

The BayThe Capital of Newfoundland and Labrador is St. John’s. It is located on the far East End of Canada. The place is beautifully situated on the Atlantic Ocean coast. City is colourful and pretty.
City has a biggest Memorial University in Maritime Provinces of Canada. About 20000 students from  Canada and other countries get education in different specialities.
The nature is beautiful and free of pollution because the industry in that part of Canada is not really huge. There are only few small local enterprises which are clean and safe for the environment.
This is nice place for tourism and refreshment.
