A June 2003 trip
to St. Johns by BCody
Quote: This being our first trip to Newfoundland (or the Rock, as locals call it), we were surprised by its natural beauty.
We walked off the extra calories with a stroll along the St. John's Harbour. This harbour is guarded by windswept headlands and has a jumble of brightly painted clapboard houses which seem to cling to rocks above the shoreline. We explored the narrow, centuries old streets behine the harborfront and found all sorts of traditional fare.
We tried Jiggs dinner, which is vegetables boiled with salted meat, fish, and brewis (boiled fish and hard bread chopped together), and then figgy duff (steamed pudding with raisins) for dessert.
