My Newfieland pics

When I went to Newfoundland in March I took some photos and have finally gotten around to scanning and up loading them. Snapfish just went down but here are the first bunch!


3-day old seal

My jazz band from school had an exchange with a jazz band from Newfoundland.
When we went to the airport to go there our plane got cancelled because of smow in Newfoundland. 36 hours later we finally got there! We arrived at like 3:00 in the morning! When they came here they only got delayed by an hour because they couldnt find their luggage at the airport. They did find it though.
I'm glad you like my pictures! Most of them were taken at the Marine Institute in St.John's (Basstrap's hometown)

Im gonna try and e-mail the marine institute and see what they named the seal. They asked us for names but the best one we could think of was Bogafart. Our drummer Doug (he has a website www.ballandglove.com) came up with that. I dont think Newfoundland was ready for a bunch like us to come and visit. Doug put up fliers for his webste everywhere. He got me and some friend to go into the ladies washroom and put a few hundred in there. I figured out how to make it so when they got a paper towel the fliers came out.

Newfie rules, I spent nearly 3 weeks out there 2 summers ago at the Soiree 99 or whatever it was... ok 3 years ago i guess... even still... Bakeapple and partridgeberry jam We drove out, took the ferry across, wooo nothing like travelling by sea, I swear its a good thing I stayed inside cuz I woulda fallen overboard.. dint quite get my sea legs... anyhoo we went to cornerbrook, up to st.. st... ok I cant remember, but its on the northern peninsula, good for whale watching, that was pretty cool. Then we went back around the highway out to Gross Morne and so forth, St Johns, had a grand time. I highly suggest people go there, its magnificent!

Nice pics ravenstar sounds like you had a good time! Did you go on any puffin-viewing excursions?
