Tom & Caitlin's Excellent Adventure to Newfoundland & Labrador


Canadian Province
Newfoundland and Labrador

Total population as of January 2010 is about 510,000 with about 26,000 living in Labrador.
We traveled to 51o 44' 42.16" N and 55o 26' 11.90" W Newfoundland land area is about 42,000 square miles (about the size of Tennesee).
Labrador has a land area of about 114,000 square miles (about the size of Arizona).
It was 1000 miles to the ferry in Cape Breton, a 7-hour ferry ride to Newfoundland and about 8-hours to Raleigh at the northern tip. Another 1 1/2 hour ferry ride to Labrador. We drove almost 5000 miles total over three weeks!

Blackflies were BAD!

As we came around the hill the fog lifted and there it was!

The next day we took a ride in a 22' boat around the iceberg.

A few hours after we left the iceberg broke up into many pieces.

Recently opened gravel road to the rest of Labrador.
