occurred to me that people's perception of temperature is relative.
Standing in a shop the other day in St John I had just commented to
John that I needed to put my warmer jacket on as I was feeling rather
chilled, when the store owner came up to us and commented that they
were having a heat wave. He was serious! It was 23C.
Dark green coniferous spruce forests intermingled with silver stemmed
pale green birch blanket the rolling hills of Newfoundland. Sparsely
populated, we seem to be novelties in most of the towns we have
visited in Newfoundland, so I do not think tourists have yet become a
bother to the folks here.
Most of our work in Canada and the USA of late is helping farmers,
farm markets, retailers, tourist Centres and state government bodies
develop Culinary Tourism. Studying local foods and it's history is
fascinating. Newfoundland's local foods are salmon, cod, halibut, snow
crab, blueberries, bake apple berry, blackcurrant, raspberry,
partridgeberry, and a whole lot of other berries I had not heard of
Today we drove into the Gros Morne National Park and toured the Viking
Trail. A thick sea fog was hanging over the bay where the cold water
met the warm land - very beautiful.
