Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Corner Brook, population around 20,000, is a pleasant little town located on the west coast of Newfoundland. The city's size and location makes it the premier destination for adventure and recreation activities.
Located on the Bay of Islands at the mouth of the Humber River, the city is the largest population center in the province outside the Avalon Peninsula. As such, Corner Brook functions as a service center for western and northern Newfoundland.

As we approached Corner Brook, Newfoundland early this morning I spotted this church positioned high on a hill; note the church cemetery.
These are some typical homes lining the hills on the edge of the Humber River on our approach to Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
There's a nature trail that winds its way through the center of town, and the one hour walk along its route was a beautiful break from the normal rush of a typical cruise ship port city; it was simple glorious.

Along that same trail water from the mountains to the east of Corner Brook flows through the center of town, and this was one of the fast moving streams.
The Newfoundland is a giant breed of dog. They were originally bred and used as a working dog for fishermen in Newfoundland. They are known for their giant size, tremendous strength, calm dispositions, and loyalty. Newfoundland dogs excel at water rescue/lifesaving because of their muscular build, thick double coat, webbed feet, and innate swimming abilities. This was a local dog I spotted in town, and she was very friendly.
