It's a gronk!

My boyfriend and my soda choices.


Today, we drove from Gros Morne (after a quick trip to go see bits of the Earth's mantle) to Saint Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador, where Norstead and the L'Anse aux Meadows interpretation centre is. Yay!

On this trip, I've been referring to moose as gronks and caribou as 'bous. Today, I got to see a 'bou as it crossed the highway about an hour outside Saint Anthony. So, I've seen 1 moose, 1 caribou, and 1 Artic hare. Saint Anthony is located in the tundra, and there's a lot of scrub and bogs and brr is it cold here.

We've also been bonding.

Joking over soda choices, looking at icebergs in between Labrador and Newfoundland, and talking over things in the car - it's been a blast.

Everything in this part of the province is Norse-themed, including B&Bs, restaurants, theatres, etc. There's even a longhouse up here, which is making my history nerd squee. A lot.

Also, I'm really, really, really far north. So far north, that it doesn't get dark until after 10p. I'm pretty sure it's not even completely dark. Also, it's freaking cold! COLD! (I'm such a midwesterner.)
