    When Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto (or John Cabot as he is locally known) first discovered North America in 1497, his first words were “O buono vista!”. When translated into English, this phrase means, “Oh happy sight!”, which is certainly fitting for what would become the town of Bonavista, the historic site of Cabot's landing.
    That wasn’t the only thing said about the area. His crew reported that
    "the sea there is full of fish that can be taken not only with nets but with fishing-baskets".

    Quidi Vidi is a charming village-within-a-city, which still embodies the spirit of an old fishing outport.
    This picturesque settlement is a mile or so outside the eastern limit of St. John’s, and was probably first settled by Europeans in the early 16th century.
    Even though Quidi Vidi Village is close to 400 years old, there is still some debate over the pronounciation of the name.
    Many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians say Kiddy Viddy, while others lean towards Kwai-da-Vidah or Kitty Vitty.
    The latest addition to this ancient village, standing on its own picturesque wharf in an iconic fishing community, is the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation.
    The Plantation serves as a craft enterprise incubator for emerging artists wishing to pursue careers as professional craftspeople in Newfoundland and Labrador.
    Visitors to the Plantation are welcome to watch, interact with, and support the craftspeople as they produce unique handmade items in a wide variety of mediums.

    St. John's, the capital of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John's has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. It's become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge.

    Coldeast Point crummey, Ferryland Date Added: Nov 21, 2009

    Coldeast Point overlooks Ferryland Harbour.

    Ferryland is one of the oldest-settled locations in Canada.

    In the early days of colonization it was a notorious pirate-haven.

    In 1621, it became the site of Lord Baltimore's ill-starred Colony of Avalon.

    Ferryland was also the site of Sir David Kirke's seventeenth century fishing premises, called "Pool Plantation".

    In 1696, the settlement was burnt and the populace scattered by a French & Indian army led by the ruthless and notorious Sieur D'Iberville.
