Upon arrival at Quirpon Island,we were greeted by a beautiful big land locked iceburg. Stuck in the cove. Amazing.

Newfoundland July 10th to 19th 2015
On July 7th Mark & I celebrated our 25th anniversary. Wow. A year ago we planned to go to Newfoundland. What a great decision.We flew into Deer Lake airport. Drove to Gros Morne National Park.Rocky Harbor,Norris Point were we saw our first whale,a minke whale. Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse,Western Brook Pond Boat Tour to see the Fjiord which is part of the Appalachian Mountains that come up from Georgia.Saw the SS. Ethie shipwreck,very cool. Best part is the captain got all the people off safely,early 1900's. St. Anthony.Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve,Quirpon Island staying at the Lighthouse Inn. Amazing and highly recommended. Twillingate,Steady Brook. Cow Head ferry to Change Island. I believe we did somewhere upwards to 2100 km. Saw lighthouses herd fog horns saw our first iceburg way out there in the fog. Totally amazing. Friendly,scenic and so much to see and places to go. St. Anthony brought us our first humpback whales,Quirpon Island brought us 4 plus 6 white sided dolphins,gannets and more. It was there that we stood on the mountain overlooking the cove and took our wedding vows all over again in Newfoundland. It was awesome.The ladies surprised us with wedding cake and champagne, a banner and balloons. The best bunch of people here,we were totally spoiled when we left to continue on our adventure.The food just kept coming. All home cooked with love. Judy at Linkum Tours Newfoundland booked everything for us and all we had to do was get there,pick up the car, and drive. It was super. She did a fantastic job. We fell into bed every night and heard nothing til it was time to go again. We even went to a dinner theater in Shallow Bay,Cow Head. The play was all about the SS.Ethie shipwreck and the food,well WOW. It made you want to go see the shipwreck and that we did. A lot of history and proud people in Newfoundland. Fun,caring and hard working. We plan to go back. Travelling in your own country is something we have never been able to do. But as I have been south many times. It is time to support Canada. It is beautiful!!!
