Norris Point, Newfoundland

sunny 20 °C

Last night I saw an awesome local band called Anchors Aweigh at a hotel in Rocky Harbor. The band (bass, banjo, guitar, accordion vocals) had a traditional Newfoundland sound and feel. The music with a lot of Scottish influences and local comedy referencing fishing, bad weather and more bad weather was pretty darn fun.

While listening to the band play I met a couple about my age from Alberta that were 6 months into an 8 month road trip. Wow, I thought 2 months was a long time to be on the road!

Today I explored Norris Point and a bit more of Rocky Harbor, two small fishing towns located in the park.

One interesting note about this area is that the moose are as abundant as black flies. So when exploring the country side here people only drive about 45 mph on the highway cause you do not want to meet a moose on the road. There are so many moose accidents that the park actually tallies up the YTD count and posts it on a sign at the park entrance.

YTD moose accidents – 16.
