How Far From Sandy Cove to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Sandy Cove to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Sandy Cove to:

  • Saint John's [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, lies 89 miles [143.2 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). If you could drive a straight line from Sandy Cove to Saint John's, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,053 miles [1,694.6 km] to the West (W).
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 4,563 miles [7,343.4 km] and it lies to the East Northeast (ENE).<4>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that stretches from Sandy Cove. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Sandy Cove) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Sandy Cove. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Sandy Cove

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sandy Cove. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.6333, Longitude: -53.7333     [Map].

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Sandy Cove to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 291.602 degrees.

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 287.039 degrees.

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 287.588 degrees.

<7>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that the community could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
