Since Elizabeth was tied up for most of the weekend, we got our Doors Open fix on Saturday morning. We started off at the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador just after it opened for the day, making us the first visitors. We were taken around the facility on a private tour by two people who work there – a clerk who has been working there for 30+ years and a security officer.
In Courtroom 7, the former law library, old probates were laid out for viewing as well as a book of shorthand notes written by a clerk during a trial in the 1970s or 1980s. The wooden ceiling of the library is still open to the courtroom and gives it a rustic feel. Not to mention that the entire building is fascinating because it is a designated heritage building.
That evening, we continued visiting new places by trying out the new(ish) restaurant Eat Clean – Healthy Grill and Juice Bar. Just as the name would suggest, they have lots of healthy options for people of varying dietary requirements. We really liked the atmosphere of the place and the food was tasty. Plus, with Luke trying to recover from his illness, we can imagine that his body wanted all of the nutrients it could get!
Here are some photos from last Saturday:
