Upon arriving in Twillingate the first thing you notice is how well kept the buildings and private residences are. It seems everyone takes great pride in their possessions - Actually we found that just about everywhere on the island!!
We took a tour with the "Iceberg Man" - We were out in the open ocean for about 30 mins. when we approached a shoreline with large rocky hills - We sailed around them into a large inlet and there they were - a half dozen or so icebergs - It was explained to us that they had drifted into this area in late April or early May and had been melting since then!! - They were still mighty impressive and the different colours and shapes were really something!!.
The captain had his helper pull chucks of ice from the water with a fish net and when we got back into port we were all offered as much ice as we wished. - There is a photo of our daughter Colleen with a chunk - it was explained to us that the ice was approximately ten thousand years old - it had to be the freshest I've ever tasted!!
The town lighthouse was really weird - shaped kinda like a milk bottle - pretty though.............The scenery as you looked out over the water was amazing!!
Our next stop was Gander (stop over and re-fuelling airport for many international flights) - Many of you will remember the Arrow Plane Crash ...............Later.
