TR: Newfoundland – Fortune (19 Aug 2010)

(Last Updated On: September 19, 2010)

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.

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.
