    Thomason Grenfell was a heroic medical missionary , a business entrepreneur, and a man loved dearly by Newfies for his outstanding efforts to make the province better and healthier. He was also a man that extraordinary stories were made of ........one such was his experience adrift an ice pan with his beloved sled dogs. Realizing his perilous circumstance and probably doomed to an icy death he reluctantly killed his dog, skinned
    them and draped their skins around himself. He survived 2 days and a night
    using the body heat of the dogs, and eventually, by providence, he was rescued. His overall commentary on the incident....I love my dogs more now than I did before the ordeal.

    This is a self guided tour. The staff at the entrance were very helpful in offering information and answering questions. It's a bit tricky to find this house as the road to it is a bit hidden.
    The house itself is very nice and has a small trail beside it.

    A must do when visiting St. Anthony. There are 450+ stairs with lots of rest break areas, the view is spectacular. Once on top you can walk the trail to enjoy even more of the Ocean views. FYI no bathroom facility on site, there is one at the top of the hill at the Gift shop / Museum

    Very quaint town in Newfoundland Canada. People were friendly and had an adorable little church nearby where our ship docked.

    This trail is not actually in St. Anthony but in Goose Cove 10km or about 6mi south of St Anthony. We first took this trail in 2018 when everyone was talking about the iceberg in Goose Cove. We had trouble finding a place to park and some enterprising children had a lemonade stand and were doing a brisk business. And there was the iceberg! Now this is a stop we make whenever we visit Newfoundland. The trail is easy--mostly on a boardwalk and leads to a great view of Hare Bay where Dr. Grenfell was adrift on an ice pan. TIP: You can learn more about this by visiting the Grenfell Center in St. Anthony and seeing the film. You can also visit Dr. Grenfell's home in St. Anthony. But back to the trail. It is relatively short--round trip in about half an hour depending on how many times you stop to take photos or just to admire the view. In season we have seen wildflowers along the way and just enjoy the ocean breezes and sounds of the waves crashing against the rocky coast. There is a gazebo that invites you to just unplug and take it all in. So calming. This year again at the end of the trail was a huge iceberg. Some other tourists said they saw a whale blow. It is a magical place and iceberg or no, it is worth the time.

    Who would have thought there would be something like this in the entrance to a hospital! The murals are utterly beautiful and well worth spending time to look at.

    Still an operational lighthouse. Great views of the bay. Maybe even see a few whales if you are lucky. The nearby trails are also worth a stroll.

    Connect this with Whale point trail and the trails in Fishing point park for a good half day outing.
    Don't be discouraged by the number of stairs!

    You can connect all the paths on the point and enjoy a half fay walk with a good climb up the stairs to the top of the hill.

    We had some time to kill while waiting for the dinner theatre later that day so we drove the Loop. Quiet, pleasantly picturesque views and relatively decent roads. a lovely detour indeed.

    One of the best tourist shops around. The prices are good with a sale on labradorite along with the folklore of the mineral.
    One of the best features is the museum exhibit of the fishing industry of NFLD and the natural flora and fauna of the province. Including a display of icebergs and polar bears which visit the area.
    It’s very informative and keeps other busy while you’re shopping.

    We visited Bottom Brook Trails on a sunny September day. There were two entrances marked on the local map. We could not find one. So we went to the other. It was a gravel path which was great with the rain we had the night before. It was a meandering trail though trees, by the bottom brook with ducks and later on a view of the harbour. Some trash (the only time we had seen trash on a trail in Newfoundland) took away from the enjoyment. But overall it was a nice way to spend a half hour.
