Day 249 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: St. John’s, Newfoundland!

Tankers fuel up or unload fuel in St. John’s harbour, which is currently being expanded with hopes of attracting more shipping business.

St. John’s has an old city feel to it; however, it has only a handful of architectural treasures.

St. John’s traffic is moderate to a pain at moments. A man jets by on an old Honda scooter, which is probably the best form of transportation in this city with its limited parking.

    Hi Tim:

    I continue to enjoy your photos — I’m following your Newfoundland journey. Some excellent photos. Although you’re travelling alone, it seems you don’t have much time to be lonely! But I suppose some of the long highway stretches can be lonely. I wrote to you once before — you met my brother in Chester, Nova Scotia; and also you took photos of my “friend” John at the Canso Causeway (just before Cape Breton). Keep up the great work.
