Since we decided to play this trip ‘by ear’ (so to speak) we added a free day into the schedule so that we could take a mo’ should that certain something happen to come along.
That happens to be L’Anse Aux Meadows, situated at the north-eastern tip of Newfoundland and home to the Viking National Historic site and Iceberg Ally.
Both activities are well worth a visit and served as a welcome rest from the ride. We even met up with a group of riders who had just completed the Labrador Highway (including Darlene who’d done the Mad Bastard Rally in 2009) so we now know exactly what we’re up against and have some good company for breakfast today before we head off to catch the ferry to Labrador.
Shame it’s pissing it down outside …
