Newfondland trip, in brief


Up very early. Lost my planeginity. Flying into St. John's is beautiful - highly recommend it. My brother's house is also beautiful. Saw some seals (not wild ones, though). Seals are silly and make me smile. Went to Signal, Quidi Vidi, and other St. John's landmarks. Went to see Disneynature's Oceans in the evening - filmography amazing, narration awful, blue whales are fucking huge. Brother's couch not comfortable for sleeping.


Lazy morning. Big breakfast. Drove around one loop of Avalon Peninsula (the Cupids, Carbonear, Harbour Grace, Heart's Content/Delight/Desire, Dildo, etc. loop). Saw the tunnel at Brigus. Saw a huge eagle - we speculate it was perhaps a golden eagle, despite the unlikelihood of one being in Newfoundland at this time of year. Were planning to eat at the heavily-advertised 'Dildo Dory Grill,' but arrived only to find it closed. Instead stopped at the first place we found - Blue Whale Eatery. Their buffet looked super sketchy, so we ordered off the menu and hoped for the best - food turned out to be amazing. Pleasantly surprised.


Lazy morning. Big breakfast. Afternoon spent shopping, evening spent reading/playing the New Wii Mario game with mom.


Woke up with a cold. Lazy morning. Big breakfast. Early afternoon trip to Dollarama while trying to unclog my sinuses. Parents/brother spent rest of afternoon cleaning out brother's office room and making it functional (I read). Out to dinner at a gastropub - delicious. Ran into a girl I know from King's who is also not from St. John's - weird coincidence! Drove around St. John's and looked at the row houses, then more Mario.


Big breakfast, shower, pack, mall, plane. Very turbulent flight. Porter serves delicious food. Flying into Halifax much less beautiful than St. John's. Home again home again, jiggity jig.
