Lovely pictures, Dave! It's still looking really green there. St. John's is just a mess of yellow leaves at the moment (but a lovely yellow mess, nonetheless .) I want to go to Halifax so badly. Maybe I should plan a ferry trip or something.

I guess I'll post some pics of Newfoundland. These weren't taken recently though.



The Trinity Loop! I can't remember much about the history of this place. I think the loop uses the old tracks that used to be part of Newfoundland's defunct railway. Not entirely certain though, maybe AOD or trev knows.




Nothing like a Newfoundland autumn.




A Newfie jellyfish.




The Dungeon in Bonavista, caused by natural wave erosion.




This was taken in Kerley's Harbour, a community that was abandoned in the 1940s/1950s, not sure on the actual date. Not all of the houses were torn down when the residents left, and this is one of them.

And some more! The Skerwink Trail which is I believe close to Port Rexton. It's the best.



Sea stacks.







It doesn't look like I was standing very high up from the sea in this picture, but trust me, it was high.



Oooo Caaanada...


I miss summer already.

Greetings from New Brunswick I've noticed that Interference is seriously under-represented when it comes to NB. Not that I'm that surprised really

Weatherwise, it's cool here possibly below zero tonight. There were actually a few snowflakes that fell from the sky today

Maybe something like what GG posted - exotic/otherworldly scenery. I didn't expect it to resemble New England so much .

Haha - well, I do live pretty much right downtown. Not too much natural scenery here. That's also the reason why we're still so green, Halifax is a microclimate. If I were to drive out of town, it looks a lot like that autumn picture GG posted.

Now, if you want otherworldly scenery, the South Shore is unreal. For the brightest fall colours you've ever seen, check out the Annapolis Valley (where I was born).

I probably should have clarified that all of those pictures were taken faaaar away from anything resembling civilisation in Newfoundland. St. John's (where I live) is very much like Halifax, at least judging from pictures I've seen of Halifax. Here, see:

http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&q=st.%20john's%20newfoundland&btnG=Search&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

I just love the old multicoloured houses in downtown St. John's.

One thing I forgot to add to my post:

Halifax has more bars per capita than anywhere else in North America!

Pictures of St. John's, Newfoundland

And GG, you're right, Trinity Loop is the last remnant of the Newfoundland railway, I only rode on a Newfoundland train once when I was a little kid.

(Great shots of Halifax, by the way. )

Re: Vancouver -- It actually is right on the ocean, but what makes it seem strange is how the mountains are so close to the ocean and the city. The downtown core (and Stanley Park) is on an island which is almost completely surrounded by the water of the Pacific Ocean....
