When we left Gander, we headed to a small town called Twillingate. Twillingate is part of a small group of islands that are located in the Notre Dame Bay. It’s ideally located in a sheltered harbor where fishing is prevalent.
Angel And Tory Slept The Entire Way To Twillingate
The ride to Twillingate was beautiful. Like most of Newfoundland is. Lots of trees. Lots of water.
Then we see something out of the ordinary. Something you would not expect to see in the middle of July on a 65 degree day….
….. An Iceberg! Yup. There it was. Just hanging out in the water caught up on the bridge.
Twillingate is known for it’s icebergs. Not only that, but they have the distinction of being the “Iceberg Capitol Of The World”.
How cool is that? No pun intended, but I’ll take it.
It’s the middle of summer, you’re out driving around or out for a hike and you glance at the water to see an iceberg floating by. It’s surreal.
We also saw some whales off in the water. So whales and icebergs. In the middle of July. Weird.
When you work on the road, like we do, you never know when the phone will ring. David took this call while we were admiring the view from this rocky edge. Not a bad office view if I do say so myself. Oh wait…I just did.
We drove around the Twillingate area to take in the sights.
A Dock In Twillingate. Nice Calm Waters.
Twillingate is so picturesque I don’t really know how to describe it. I think the best I can do is enchanting.
Our campground, the only campground in town, was pretty decent. Within walking distance to the water. And just across the street their was a woman that sold home-made jellies and jams out of her home. So of course, we had to buy some. What a nice lady. Everyone here is really nice. Always with a smile.
All Around The Circle Dinner Show was nice. The music up here is very Irish/Scottish. In the show they played guitar, accordion and what they call a traditional ugly stick, while singing local folk lore songs. The troupe also did various skits and solos. Interesting to say the least. I also have to make mention that the performers where also the servers and cooks for the dinner, before the show. How exhausting.
I guess this is what you get when you only have one tv channel up here.
Nice views. Nice walks. Nice sunsets. Nice time.
We would have liked to spend a few more days in Twillingate. It was that nice.
