While Newfoundland and Labrador
are big on drama with windswept coasts and cliffs that rise above the steel gray Atlantic, the province has a surprisingly colorful side too. Case in point: Jellybean Row, in St. John’s. Beginning in the 1970s, home owners began painting their houses in candy-colored hues and the trend has never gone away. The fondness for the brighter side extends into local crafts and arts as you can see in galleries in St. John’s and artists’ studios around the province. The locals are also surprisingly colorful characters, known for the friendly welcome they extend to visitors. Finally, there is also the colorful display of nature itself, with icebergs taking on surprising hues from white to blue, puffins with the splashes of orange on their beaks and feet complimenting their black-and-white plumage, and the many hues of both the ocean and the coastal fog.
