  • 1. Newfoundland Pony Sanctuary

    Newfoundland ponies are a part of the Island's cultural history and heritage. Netta LeDrew, founder of the sanctuary, can tell visitors of the work this breed did hauling capelin in from the stages and plowing the fields. But the ponies under her care know no such rigors; these sturdy little beauties are a part of a rescue and breeding program. You can come and meet them and appreciate their picturesque lives with their devoted caretaker, a brand new barn, and plenty of space to graze and roam.

  • 2. Olde Shoppe Museum at Change Islands

    Finding a one-room museum built and maintained by a local character is a given on most trips through small towns. Finding one that holds any interest or is meticulously well organized, with each artifact researched through painstaking tracking of oral histories, is usually akin to a snipe hunt. But Peter Porter is a curator by deep instinct if not training. His stories and anecdotes may be oft repeated and almost pat in their singsong cadence, but his respect for the history he is preserving is contagious. His accordion playing isn't shabby either.

  • 3. Tilting National Historic Site

    The community of Tilting, on Fogo's far end, is famous for how well they have preserved their "vernacular" architecture—small boxy wooden houses right on the water's edge with a simple and practical center-hall design broken into four small bedrooms upstairs to maximize on privacy and minimize on heating costs. The Dwyer Fishing Premises won an award for preservation of the architectural heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador, and along with the Old Irish Cemetery, the Lane House Museum, and Sandy Cove Park, make for a complete afternoon outing. If the weather is nice, a picnic or camping on Sandy Cove beach is a treat.
