After hitting up the St. John’s area of Newfoundland where we also saw Signal Hill and Cape Spear, we then headed south down to Marystown and then Fortune. Fortune appears a bit stark at first.
But, if you look a bit closer, you’ll find the real beauty that Fortune has to offer.
One of my favorite scenes of the day – boat houses.
My favorite boat, for obvious reasons 😉
Islands in the distance.
Fortune has a population of about 2,000 people.
With a history linked back to fishing, those lost at sea are deeply remembered.
We were in Fortune to catch the ferry over to St. Pierre, an island that remains a colony of France.

Next up- ferry ride and wonderful St. Pierre!
