This trip we had more time and no one whining in the backseat. We took the long, overnight ferry that put us down on the southeast corner to start. Our first stop was Cape Saint Mary's. Tens of thousands of sea birds nest here - gannet, kittiwake, murre, razorbill, guillemot, cormorants and fulmars. It was a foggy day but still amazing -
There were a few sheep scattered on the grassy cliffs. Grazing unconcerned from their precarious positions.
A day or two later it was clear and warm and we hiked the Skerwink Trail.
We continued on across the northern coast to Twillingate where we did more hiking and continued to enjoy snacking on blueberries and raspberries and saw lots of pitcher plants.
Next we worked our way up the great northern peninsula. We saw sea caves -
And mountains -
And thrombolites -
and this trip we actually made it to L’Anse aux Meadows!
I found the Viking yarn stash :)
In St. Anthony, we saw two humpbacks and climbed 476 steps up to the top of a mountain.
It was a lovely trip and we met so many wonderful people. We will definitely go back, but next time we want to see icebergs! It was so much fun to work on the designs for my eBook on our trip - be sure to check out each pattern page on Ravelry to read more about it.
