Day 7: Friday, 3 September 2010

We awoke to a beautiful, clear morning.


We hit the road and headed north toward L'Anse aux Meadows, site of a pre-Columbus Viking settlement. We stopped off at a Tim Horton's for breakfast, waved at Martin as he rode past in the other direction, and came to the northern tip of Newfoundland.


Then we headed over to the historical site and walked out towards the recreated settlement. Rugged, beautiful countryside up there.




The Viking houses were made of sod and actually seemed quite comfortable on the inside.


These remarkably authentic-looking men were working on this boat. I wonder if they have winter gigs as pirates or at ren fairs down south somewhere.


On the way out of the historical site, we finally spotted some moose and thought of Martin. How he would have enjoyed this!


We headed south, enjoying the beautiful countryside along the way.
















We picked up some groceries and fresh fish in Rocky Harbour and set up camp in Gros Morne National Park's Green Point campground. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the sea.




We picked a nice spot shielded on three sides by woods.

Once again we were treated to a spectacular sunset. The sky up here seems to enjoy putting on a show.
