Halleluiah Hallelujah first sign of sun in 7 days. Still mighty cold at 5C with some wind but NO RAIN.
Toured all the nooks and crannies of Twillingate and there are many. Beautiful scenery and Sylvia managed to capture a lot of the local flavour. Big highlight was being able to see icebergs up close. Last year Twillingate had one iceberg and this year the bay is full. Luck of the draw.
Went by zodiac with twin 300hp outboard motors. That in itself was a bit of a thrill. Some wind so seas were up. Sylvia’s pics speak for themselves. Guide fished out a small piece of iceberg to pass around. Good fun. Cold but sunny!
Went for dinner at a local seafood restaurant. Glenn tackled some delicious snow crab and got instructions from a local resident on how best to get the meat out without cutting one’s fingers. Had a good chat with Kevin Sansome current owner of a seafood restaurant started by his Father Doyle many years ago. No reservations, cash only. Food outstanding. Had a few minutes with Kevin afterwards. He had fished for every kind of fish and crustacean for over 50 years. Hands gnarled and bent up with arthritis. Great person. He said Glenn had a strange accent and when I said Irish from Quebec City he just nodded. To be told by a Newfie that someone has an accent is a compliment (I think). Done for the day. Tomorrow Fogo Island - here we come at 05:45.
