We missed an important part:  We loved L'Anse Aux Meadows.  Mostly because of the reconstruction of a Viking village dating back to 500 years before Columbus.

We had a wonderful boat tour at a place called Western Brook Pond (lakes are ponds!) where half a mountain broke off and fell into the lake causing a 92' tidal wave that stripped all the soil right down to bedrock and taking everything else with it in 1860.  Cliffs go straight up for 2000'.

After driving through Gros Morne National Park we worked our way over to Twillingate.  It is a quiet picturesque place where we went for our first dinner out!  Lobster!  Wow!  We spent one whole day hiking around the bluffs there and just settled down in the heather far out on a point.  The beauty of the shoreline, the Alpine Meadow lookling bluffs, the boats moving in and out to sea far below us is hard to describe -- we absoluely loved it.

Love Lee and Phil
