Delayed in Newfoundland

We wound up staying an unexpected Day 7 in Newfoundland because of flight delays. We had the option of staying another full day in St. John's or hanging out in Newark, New Jersey last night. Newfoundland...or New Jersey. Whales or petrochemical refineries. Not a difficult choice.

So we rented the last car in St. John's (I'm not kidding. It was a mini-van) And we decided to attempt another spin around the Irish Loop. I don't have great pictures because it rained the entire day, but here are some of the highlights:
  • Ate moose for lunch at the Riverside Restaurant
  • Went whale watching at St. Vincent's
  • Completed the Irish Loop
  • Walking through a movie set while trying to check into the hotel (seriously, we could barely check in because the lobby was full of crew and extras)
We thought about visiting our friend at the Portugal Cove South Visitor Centre again and heading up to Cape Spear, but I was not about to attempt that in a mini-van.

Now, we are delayed in the Newfoundland airport again, but I'll hopefully get back to the States tonight.

Hey Heather! Please don't tell us your flight was delayed due to a flat (rented) tire !?! Enjoyed viewing and reading about your travels with your mom. Thanx and welcome back!
