Thanks for the compliments! You live in a very special place and I'm looking forward to a return trip. Dark rum sounds like a valuable currency but I'll have to take your word about cigarettes in prison. :elkgrin:Wonderful thread, sir! Warms the cockles to know you enjoyed Newfoundland!
I was impressed by the thorough and informative treatment you gave my homeland.
I was born & bred in Town (St. John's), taught the Vikings at community college in St. Anthony, and now work for the Canadian Coast Guard in Port aux Basques - ie, you have to go through me to get here...literally
I have been all over this Rock, and you, sir, did a very good job of getting acquainted - you hit all the high points! Your expose was well written, very interesting, and felt like I was looking at my own photo albums.There's a pic that close to my house! I think I saw some family in one shot!
However, Western Brook fjord awaits, whale watching in may-july beckons, and a hoard of secret spots I've banked over years of travel, play and work as a Tour Guide. And of course the TransLabrador highway!
I'd love to offer up my secrets, but it'll cost ya (around here, dark rum is like cigarettes in prison)
Hmmm, Cape Pine, La Manche, Bay Bulls, Sandbanks, Gillam's Rd., Conche/Croque, Baccalieu, and a million more. You should also be leaving with shots of moose, caribou, eagles, osprey, black bear, puffins, turrs, and whaleswhaleswhales! (it's easy to sell something you believe in :ylsmoke
So happy to see such a great write-up. Good on ya, old man!
Hey, hang on, there's not one Newfie joke here... oh, wait...
