The Colors of St Johns

When traveling around St John’s, Newfoundland, regardless of being on foot or in a vehicle, you can’t help but be mesmerized by the assortment of bright colors of the houses.

Side by side these Victorian homes stand but all painted a different, glorious color. The fact they are referred to as the “Jellybean Row Houses” only adds to their beauty!

The Colors of St Johns

There’s many stories about the reasons behind their bright colors. One story states the bright colors were to guide the fisherman home during the thick fogs.

Yea, like you can see colors in fogs when you can’t even see a building, rock or even an ice-burg for that matter, lol. Hey, it’s a nice story though but…  “mum, how much longer?”
