Trinity

On the way back from Terra Nova to St. John's we took a detour up the Bonavista Peninsula, at least as far as Trinity, which is reputed to be one of the most attractive villages in Newfoundland. It's obviously quite a tourist destination, with several house museums, inns, gift stores and so on. (This is all relative, of course: the permanent population is about 200.)

It used to be a substantial trading depot, a base for merchants who supplied the fishing trade. None of the warehouses remain, but a number of reasonably sylish houses do, and some impressive churches, which indicate that this was once an important population center.

The Anglican church, an impressive wooden-Gothic structure, with a cute graveyard full of little yellow flowers.
