Next weekend is the Labour Day (yes, the Canadians spell it with a “u”) long weekend which marks the official end of the summer holiday time because the kids go back to school the following day. I thought it would probably be quite a busy time so I needed to plan a bit further ahead than I have been.
I’ve spent most of the day doing research & have made bookings for the next week, ending up at l’Anse aux Meadows next weekend. This is the only confirmed Viking settlement in North America & as I’ve had an ongoing interest in the Vikings for several years, it was near the top of my must-see list.
It’s also the turn-around point for this trip. There’s only one road to L’Anse aux Meadows so I have to retrace my route to Deer Lake, then continue south to get the ferry back to Nova Scotia.
