    It was great to swim at the Memorial pool while I was here. The cost to get in is $4.85 - and last yeapr it was $2.50 and the hours have been greatly reduced - with the swim from 12:00-14:00, Monday to Friday completely done away with and the hours are now very limited. Last night for example, there was swimming from 8:30-9:30 pm.- not great when you swim for an hour. But the pool is fine, not great, but fine and I prefer it to the Acquarena, and there are lockers - bring your own lock - and lots of hot water.

    Alexis' art is lovely. She offers space in her studio for other potters as well which must speak to her character as an artist. We ate from her plates at Raymonds and now have a bowl at home.

    Not much of a farmers market when we came around lunch time on a Saturday in June.
    Outside there were maybe two stands selling plants, one or two with a small assortment of veggies and then indoors food stalls and handcrafted / homemade goods.

    It was still worth having lunch and I must say I had the best Shawarma so far!
    Be prepared to be entirely undecided food wise because it’s all different and all mouthwatering.

    This mall is very new, as it was clean and bright. Many stores have gone out of business, so there are sections of the mall with no stores opened. I love their Shop Down Home store, as it has many uniquely products of Newfoundland.

    The food court is not bad, but many closures there as well.

    This is a pleasant three story gallery in a previous house. The art work is beautiful and largely focuses on Newfoundland by artists that are local and from away. There is also artwork with themes from off the Island.

    Print artist John Andrews has created cooper and linocut prints that celebrate things Newfoundland in creative and humorous ways. I purchased a linocut print spoof on an old Newfoundland postage stamp that includes a puffin in uniform. Recreations of beautiful pre-confederation Newfoundland coins also caught my attention with delight. John and his artistic colleague are typically behind the front counter engaged in their ongoing artistic pursuits, prepared to explain their respective techniques to patrons. Though I stumbled onto this fascinating studio, I'm thankful for the opportunity to visit.

    Lester's Petting Farm does not practice animal welfare, especially as regards their pigs. Today I witnessed young pigs in a small pen up to their ankles in mud and their own excrement rooting for food in their own filth. Pigs are naturally clean animals who, if given the space, will not soil their eating and living areas. These intelligent animals have no dry area to retreat from the mud and if they also sleep in that muddy pen, one can only imagine the awful lives they lead 24/7. The adult pigs fared no better in their muddy pens. Pigs will wallow in mud for sun protection but no pig would prefer to live in the kind of filth and stench they are subjected to at Lester's Farm. Currently they have a new litter of piglets and the mother and babies are in a dry pen with clean straw. Lester's is encouraging the public to come meet these adorable piglets. the truth is those piglets will go from a clean hygenic environment to the one I just described once they have grown out of their value as very young piglets. Truly inhumane practices there.

    Such a cute little shop downtown. They always have new items in stock and unique jewellery. There are lots of items made by local artists and local businesses which is nice to see. They always dress up the front windows very nicely as well. Definitely pop in for a look around.

    If you are a record collector, or you're in search of the perfect record / music for someone, whether it be yourself, or someone else, Fred's on Duckworth Street is the place to go. Just look for the purple exterior and you're there. Great staff, very attentive.

    Cute place to visit with children who like sweets. They have a great selection of unique chocolate bars and candies. Our son was in heaven.
    They even carry the full line of Mr. Beast bars!
