You will have to Google this and read the history very interesting the story of the sieges and the life way back when!!!

I paid my 15 dollars admission and yes that was with my Seniors Discount…I love that!!!!

All very well organized they bus you to the site and I was just in time for a 75 minute guided tour which I am glad that I took because all the history was given to you and you didn’t go inside any building so after the tour then you go off on your own where ever you wanted……

Here are some photos of the Fortress and it is not a Fort I know the difference now do you??

These were two very talented musicians but sorry to say had no stage personality and the crowd was small so the atmosphere was not great but I enjoyed the music.

I have decided to spend the night here in the parking lot at the library.

Tomorrow I shall do a small coastal tour before heading to Sydney where at 10.30pm I take the ferry to Newfoundland again will post when I can…blessings Les
