Wharf at Bonavista. The blue building with the red roof houses a replica of John Cabot's ship The Matthew. He landed near the lighthouse below in 1497.
Museum in Bonavista tells the story of a very wealthy businessman that controlled the fishing industry in this area in the early 1900's. He was not very well liked by the fisherman because he paid them so low. Unions were finally formed. Mr. Cocker was a very avid advocate and formed the union. It was headquartered a few miles from Bonavista and the town that grew out of it was called Port Union.
Trinity, just another beautiful town in Newfoundland. This is where the movie "The Shipping News" was filmed.
Cliff dancing to Newfy music with an "Ugly Stick". We were "screeched-in" which means drinking a shot of screech rum (bottom of the barrel), and kissing a dead cod. Really disgusting. We are now official "Newfy's". This dinner was put on by the local chapter of the Cocker Historical Foundation. These ladies made us quite a dinner including moose sausages, and fish & brew.
