Day 21, Bonavista, the second half

After finishing our suck of a growler on the shores of Elliston, Sharon and I continued a few more kilometres south where we viewed some very old root cellars, we also visited a unique puffin nesting colony, checked out 600 million year old rocks in The Dungeon, got into a tad bit of trouble in an almost one of a kind lighthouse, and finally I watched as Sharon had a one-way conservation with the explorer John Cabot.


Enjoy the show

How did I know people were not supposed to turn the wheel, which manually rotates the lamps.  There were no signs, no locks to hold things fast, or any supervision at the top.  So I felt comfortable in turning the wheel. 

 NOT A GOOD IDEA.  

The moment a staff member at the bottom of the spiral staircase noticed the shaft turning..., well I could hear inquisitive foot steps thumping up towards me.  Oops!
