Saturday 20th August 2011…last day of berg photos and half a moose!!!!!

Had a great sleep and occasionally through the night I would hear the crash and roar of an iceberg breaking up but woke up to pea soup fog!!

Went on a bit of a road trip but as I passed through town I saw the Church group here doing a car wash and I thought why not treat Ramona!!!!

Just past this sign a group of motorists had stopped and so did I…. they all had these enormous telephoto lens and there was me with my baby Cannon…anyway I climbed up onto the roof of Ramona and got this shot!!!!

aug20 014Now I do not know to count this as a full moose sighting what do you think??

Anyway the site was very well set up and very Interesting…

My friend Inga is of Icelandic decent and I often accused her relatives of raping and pillaging my country but I shall never forget the first time I met Inga’s Father, his name was Snorri, he was a giant of a man and I have never seen a man with such huge hands….but he was a gentle and funny man…anyway this boat is called Snorri!!!!

That is it!!!

I have been thrilled to be in this area and share with the locals and you lovely readers these magnificent acts of nature!!!!

Staying in the same place as last night and tomorrow I am on the road again.

I have decided that as I have come all this way across Canada and the USA it would be a shame not to go to Labrador so I am heading to the ferry at St.Barbe tomorrow and depending on time will take the ferry tomorrow or Monday it is only a 100 minute crossing and will cost about 35 dollars one way for Ramona so will spend one night over there…I will post when I can……have a lovely Sunday!!
