We spent some time at Signal Hill then got on The Link, a Hop on Hop off bus. We visited Quidi Vidi, a small fishing village where we lunched on Poutine.

Then we got on the bus and headed to Newman’s Wine Vault. This was a fascinating place with a very knowledgeable guide. The Newman Company of Britain started shipping barrels of Port from Porto Portugal to Newfoundland in 1697. The company is still in business today. We also got a glass of Port with our tour, Bonus.
