Trinity, Newfoundland

October 30, 2023  •  3 Comments

Trinity is a small town located on Trinity Bay in Newfoundland.  We walked around the colorful and charming  town and ended up hiking up a hill overlooking the church and  buildings.  

The harbour at Trinity was first used by fishing ships around the 16th century.  Before the decline of Trinity in the mid 19th century, the town and area became the major centre of trade on the northeast coast of Newfoundland.  Today it is a major tourism destination in Newfoundland.

 A sunrise walk in Trinity.  Trinity was the site that Sir Richard Whitbourne held the first court of Admiralty in 1615, establishing  the first court of justice in North America. 

Early morning in the fog.

On our way back to St. Johns we stopped to visit the  "Random Passage Site".  This site was built in 2000 for filming of the international TV mini-series "Random Passage".  The site provides the opportunity to learn about the obstacles and opportunities of living in the 19th-century small fishing village in Newfoundland.

A quaint area. Great color in the sunset (?) shots. I particularly liked the one with the boats.

You're so cruel! You keep showing these great pictures of Newfoundland, begging us to re-visit that wonderful province, but we're not traveling any more....
So cruel (but don't stop!)
