I had the pleasure today of taking the Bay Roberts Shoreline Heritage Walk. This beautiful walk along the shoreline and cliffs of the ocean surrounding Bay Roberts is instant stress relief. Developed by the Bay Roberts Heritage Society, they have done a great job of paying honor to the past while at the same time enjoying nature.
You can stand on the spot where French fishermen toiled as far back as the 1500’s. As a matter of fact, there is a small graveyard, as part of the walk, with gravestones dating back to 1676 I believe, and some of the 1700’s. Very cool.
There are more pictures of this beautiful outing on their website at
If you are travelling the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland anytime soon, take it in. You won’t regret it.
