Today was L'Anse aux Meadows and Norstead. I geeked. A lot. At L'Anse aux Meadows, they have rebuilt what the original settlement looked like - and I got to walk where Leif Ericsson walked. SQUEE. They also had living history folks, and that was also really cool. Seeing all of this against a backdrop of a lot of icebergs really got the creative juices flowing.

After L'Anse aux Meadows, the lad and I went to Norstead, where I got to talk shop with the interpreters (which I wanted to do at L'Anse aux Meadows, but the living history folks were definitely in character), and talked through some ideas with regard to my jewellery making and wire-producing methods in period. I also got to feed sheep and played Kubb and had a really excellent time.

Afterwards, the lad and I raced from the very tip of the Northern Peninsula all the way to about an hour away from the start of the Avalon. On the way, we saw a pod of Minke whales and two moose, plus a couple beaver dams.

Tomorrow, back to the Avalon and St. John's, but I'm picking up sea glass here in Port B, dangit.
