Briefly

Very quick post tonight.  I'm standing in the parking lot with my laptop perched on a recycling bin.  The wireless doesn't quite get to our cabin.


It was another day of driving although I didn't have to do it.  We have now met our tour and the driver gets all the aggro.  Up early and get out on the road to check out the salmon jumping up the falls in the river. It was more fun to watch the fishermen stading in the Humber River.  I'm pretty  sure they there for the peace and quiet since those salmon weren't interested in much but getting upriver.


We drove through a lightning storm and huge buckets of rain.  Then when we reached Gros Morne park the sun came out. Perfect timing.  Some beautiful wildflowers.  The pitcher plant is Newfoundland's provincial flower.  This one seems to have caught an ant.


Close by was a whole plantation of tiny sundew plants.  They are very tiny...this is about the size of the end of my little finger.

Then  a tour of the Marine Research Center in Norris Point.  Lots of cool hands-on stuff.  Tis is a sea mouse.  I have never heard of one before but it definitely looks like something the cat dragged in!

It's getting late and hard to type by the streetlamp.  Another big day tomorrow and the same lack of connectivity, I think.  We'll meet again in the parking lot.

Hah! The news in brief. Clever of you to find the connection. That's true blogging dedication. A sea mouse you say? Never heard of that. I'm off to google it.

LOL. You are such a die hard blogger but I for one appreciate it. That sea mouse is hilarious and a little gross. I think I'm glad I did my scuba diving on the west coast!

Love the plant pictures! Thanks for posting! Can you not compose the blog entry offline & hit "send" in the parking lot? Not that I know much about these things just know the YH does that sometimes when she is flying etc.

You're on, just tell me when you arrive in the parking lot and I'll come on down!!
It's nice to be able to relax and let someone else do the driving and navigating. Then you can concentrate on enjoying yourself, seeing what's around, and of course taking photos for us!
That little sundew plants is simply adorable!
