During a November weekend away (you may remember the Swift Current post), we took a long-ish detour and decided to visit this little town.  Our visit was short, but we did make it to Cape Bonavista to see the gorgeous lighthouse.

Canadians know Bonavista as that easterly place made famous in the Canadian version of "This Land Is Your Land".

But Newfoundlanders know it's a real place.  They may know it as a legendary landing spot of John Cabot (or Giovanni Caboto - he was Italian).

They may know it as yet another ruggedly beautiful coastal area in a province that is abundantly blessed with such places (like here, and here, and here, and here).

We can certainly vouch for its beauty.  It was worth the drive.
