traveling through Basque Newfoundland

From New York to St. John's Newfoundland. There is a energy in the city, the harbour works late, the lights are on all night. The influence of oil money shows.

 From there to Port Rexton to begin the Newfoundland travels.

I crossed from one side of the island to the other. We saw so many trees and long straight roads slicing through forests and bouncing over hills. For moments, hours or days I would stop to study Basque ports en route. The Basque presence in Newfoundland and Labrador is visible, I started to become adept at recognizing good natural harbours and deep anchorages.
