Here are some pictures from our 14 day trip in the Northeast coast of Newfoundland this spring. What a trip! We explored the protected waters of Dildo Run, and then circumnavigated New World Island. We threaded our way in and out of protected waters as we made our way around, paddling through a number of narrow straights or tickles (our favourite: Gut Tickle). We then concluded our trip with a few days in the beautiful Bay of Exploits. We paddled through history (both Beothuk and European), and watched as countless icebergs drifted our way from Western Greenland, riding the Labrador current. The Northeast coast and it's people are truly incredible! We had great travelling companions who enjoyed our shock at all of the jokes about Nova Scotians that we learnt from the islanders. We made a few new friends who promised to visit us in Nova Scotia...if they run out of gas on the way to Toronto! Ha! Thank you all for a fantastic time. We'll be back!
