Staycation guide

It's called a "staycation", and it's all about finding great ways to fill your summer while staying close to home. As thousands of tourists discover every year, Newfoundland and Labrador has breathtaking sites and a wealth of events to fill the hot and sunny — OK, and the damp and foggy — days of summer. We have collected a series of stories from across the province so you can see who is doing what, and where it's all happening. Now, get out there!

Glad he was there and glad he supported it, but it is presumptuous, arrogant and disrespectful that it should bear his name. In the seal hunt era commemorated by this monument and museum, there were two solitudes in Newfoundland. There were those who served in near indentured servitude for meagre rewards in an extraordinarily high risk industry and those who profited from that servitude. Mr. Crosbie's family was the latter.
