Our campsite

the campground office at Viking RV Campground

 


Today we did the 400 kilometre drive north to Saint Anthony, and finally l’anse Aux Meadows. This is what inspired Glenna to come up here, the Newfoundland television ads that told where the Vikings had landed in North America.

It was an easy drive, over mostly good roads that took us less than 5 hours. The scenery is absolutely amazing. There are two things that topped my must see while in Newfoundland list. Moose and icebergs, and as of tonight, I am on the lookout for moose. We saw whales yesterday, and today it was icebergs. They are awesome. Check out some of the pictures. We are staying at a small campground, about 20 sites, of which I think 6 have 30 amp electric service. It is called The Viking RV Campground and is 3 kilometres from the Viking site. No sewer hookup, and no drinkable water. The Vikings must have had it tough too! It reached 23C today, another shorts and T-shirt day here on the rock, even at the northern most point of Newfoundland. What a beautiful province, and the friendliest Canadians. We are having a blast!
