In case you didn’t know already – Rob and I went to Newfoundland in August with some of our friends. While this group had all lived together at some time or another we’d not ever traveled together as a group. Well, we car camped together a few summers ago but that’s just not the same and a real, honest to goodness vacation away. So – we started plotting and planning and settled on traveling to the rock by plane and then all over the rock in the luxurious comfort of a minivan (that’s everyone, there sans Kevin who’s taking the photo and is world renowned for being camera-shy).
We were there for 8 days and put 3000km on the van, visiting St. John’s, Bay Bulls, Gros Morne, Lanse aux Meadows, Twillingate, Trinity, and Cape Spear. I think Gros Morne and Twillingate were the favourite parts of the trip for me. Twillingate might even have been the group favourite. We missed lobster, whale, and iceberg season. So – if you ever plan to go, go in July NOT in August. Even still – we got to eat some great fish, hear some great music, and see some really good art. There’s a fantastic art and craft scene in Newfoundland. I’m guessing it’s partly to do with the inspiration that is so abundant there and partly the fact that an artist can have a good standard of living even on a small income.
Here’s a little collage I made of the best pictures from the trip. For more pictures, check out my photo album over here.
Stay tuned for tales of "the move" ...
Talk to you soon,
