Yesterday I explored the downtown core and today I visited some of the unique areas and the local National Historic Sites.
I first headed to The Battery. I found a parking spot and walked through the streets. The Battery is on the entrance to the harbour located on the slopes of Signal Hill. I think this originally was a fishing …
