From The Lighthouse: Ferryland


Travelling highway 10, the Irish Loop,, south from St. John’s you pass communities with names: Witless Bay, Tors Cove, Brigus South, Cape Broyle and Ferryland.  This community is spilling out with history with a modern interpretation centre and an active archeological dig site.  It’s worth going on line to check out the Colony of the Avalon.

When in Ferryland you can walk across a newly restored breakwater. It had to be restored when it was wiped out by a huge wave in the winter of 2010. You then will come to the dig site which is active from spring to fall, before arriving at the hill path.  The pathway to the lighthouse is a thirty minute walk.  The last part is through a spruce forest which is cool on a hot summer’s day.  On days like these you’ll want to have a picnic basket from Lighthouse Picnics.
