a few more pics of icebergs. the locals love the huge ones, but i love the tiny ones too...
bits of them wash up on shore. this is the coolest little cove, shielded from the wind. we collected bits of iceberg and put them in our water bottles. love the idea of drinking freshly melted icebergs
contemplating jumping on this little iceberg. common sense won.
i love, love, love looking for beach glass. i wasn't expecting to get to do much here, but i was totally wrong. i have found so much. these are a few bones, etc that i found while in twillingate the other day. i think that is a pelvic bone? everything i learned from vertebrate zoology and mammalogy is totally gone, so i have no idea what type of animal that may have come from. pretty cool though
we were told by a coworker that the blueberries of newfoundland have the most antioxidants of any blueberries. the coworker also told us that you can pull over anywhere and find wild blueberries. i had my doubts, but the other day we pulled onto a side road with a few tupperware containers, and found tons of blueberries. so excited to make muffins with these berries. i just want to go back and fill my freezer with these. they are so sweet and tasty.
we definitely love being near water. jon was training for a few triathlons this summer, so we spent a lot of time searching for cool swimming spots. one of the best was jonathan's pond near our little town. the water was pretty warm and there was never too many people swimming there.
