One more day in St. John’s 

Walked to the west end to visit the Newman wine vaults. They were used to age port and then shipped back to England. It is the oldest building in town. Most were destroyed in a fire. Headed up to commissariat house next to the government house where the governor lives.

The jelly bean houses are row houses painted in bright colors. Boat paint was cheap and also helped residents to find the right house heading home from the pub. Patty went on a photography trip for birds at St Mary’s.

Dined at Yellowbelly brewery and then back to O’Reillys pub for some more Irish music from Connemara. To bed early. Off to the airport in the morning. Time to head back to the world.
