  • Newfoundland 2012,
    it is a place you have to visit to really enjoy!
    Sorry for the links but since face book takes all your rights to pictures posted on the albums....
    So we where off to the “Rock” again, but this time our grown kids did not want to miss out after our last trip in 2009. (No way they where going to travel with the “old folks ….) But the pictures from the last trip peaked their interest.
    We didn’t take a canoe this time or the trailer, there was just too many places to see, but I did take some notes on where I can paddle next time out, which hopefully will be soon.
    Places we could have paddled when we where there Port Aux Basque (smaller harbour) Gros Morne (numerous spots), L’anse Aux Meadows, New World Islands/Twillengate, Elliston (the harbour, not out by Puffin island, too rough), Terra Nova National park and Corner Brook/Blow me down P.P. there are a lot of historic places to paddle here. The Vikings, Capt. Cook, Jacques Cartier, not to mention the generations of those who plied the waters of Newfoundland and eked on their existence, when you see just how rugged Newfoundland is you get a great appreciation of how they managed to live here.
    If you plan to go to Newfoundland and paddle, remember it is a place of extremes, just how rugged beautiful it is but on how fast conditions can change. Even though this a sea kayakers paradise there are Harbours, and “Arms” that you can reasonably safely paddle, you just need to be a little more aware than if you are doing a river trip, and yes there are a few good one here too.
    It cannot be understated about the wind and fog. The day we did the boat tour on Western brook pond it was so windy it was hard to walk the trail to the tour dock and waves on the open part on the pond before entering the fjord where over 1 m. high.
    The overcast sky broke just before we started the tour and the clouds that remained help give the cliffs great depth.

    The side trail that loops over to the river leading the pond is well worth the extra hike. When the trail meets the river hike up pack to the pond and you will get a beautiful unobstructed (no boat dock) view of the pond and fjord.

    Quickly talked to an older couple from Australia that carried in a pak canoe and where going to paddle the river down to the Gulf of St. Lawrence they where lucky that the flow was still high enough, any lower it would be a no go, the stretch visible from the highway was barely passable.
    We drove up to Cows Head after the tour for a fresh cod lunch mmmmmm…..

    The only bad weather you could say we had in the 2 weeks we where there was in St. Anthony’s. L’anse Aux Meadows cloudy but cool, half an hour away, St. Anthony’s completely fogged in and they did not expect it to clear for another day or 2, but the area what we could see is just as spectacular.
    We did not stay in St. John’s very long, we figured if we wanted to see the city we could get a cheap flight and just hang out there for a few days on a weekend sometime.
    So enough of the words, and on with the picture story.
    Hiking, short, long, and many missed worth going back for. Gros Morne speaks for itself here are a couple of others you may not have heard about.
    The Arches (on the way up to St. Anthony’s) (and yes we climbed it)

    Cape Spear It is hard to get a semi original pic at major sites unless conditions vary enough to make it different. I had great clouds as a back drop, checked out a few sites for comparisons….. and even with the clouds the images are very similar, so we tried a different angle for the second shot.

    Sunsets, they speak for themselves, your pretty far north so they are prolonged pretty good in the summer.

    There are so many birds flying at once it is very hard to focus and just get one bird. Part way through our visit a Bald Eagle flew over and even more birds took off and flew a tight evasive pattern over top the nesting area. I tried to get a shot but there was just too much action, so I just sat and watched this amazing display and when they are on the ground their blue eyes….

    These two Gannets did their dance a little longer than most and I didn’t realize till I looked at the images at home the reason why, the egg between the 2!

    Razorbills a very cool looking bird, there are not too many nesting pairs here.

  • Well I am bored the politicians are destroying the world so I decided to look up Jeff (ah, that would be me) in the urban dictionary and it is all so true!
    Jeff 2133 up, 893 down
    A Jeff is a really cool kid who everyone loves.
    Someone with a fantastic everything.
    Everyone's best friend.
    A Jeff will most likely often be cheerful and can always put their friends in the best of moods.
    This person can make British Guard People giggle in about 3.7 milli seconds.
    Jeff's have awesome dance skills and great hair.
    Although Jeff's are magically perfect, they will make you feel super about your fat ugly self. And you will never feel ewwy.
    "Wow you're pretty much being a Jeff right now, and I'm liking it."
