Newfoundland - Day 8 Part 2, Driving Down the Coast on my Birthday

What a great birthday! We started the day with a traditional Newfie breakfast - including fish cakes, toutons and molasses, potatoes, and beans. And to make it even better, it was made by our buddy Pauline.

After (sadly) leaving the Fishermans Landing Inn, we drove "down the coast" as the Newfies say - actually north up the Northern Peninsula. We made a couple of stops on the way - we saw some rocks (there was an old shipwreck there, too, whatev), some whales!, and The Arches Provincial Park, before stopping at Port aux Choix for lunch at the Anchor Cafe. They had the best fish chowder in all of Newfoundland!


We drove all the way up to St. Anthony, mostly right along the coast. At one point we could see the rest of Canada across the water. Well, we could see Labrador.

My birthday dinner was at the restaurant in St. Anthony, the Lightkeeper's Seafood Restaurant, and much to our surprise there was an iceberg right out the window! Like they put it there just for us on my birthday!
