Newfoundland & Labrador 2003

Newfoundland

(Page 1 of 11)  

  
One of the several ferries that connect the island of Newfoundland to the mainland.

The ferry runs between North Sydney in Nova Scotia to Port-aux-Basques in Newfoundland.

It's about a 6 hour journey.

 

  
Arriving at Port-aux-Basques.
  
Newfoundlander's lives are tied closely to the sea, even today. And in death as well.

This graveyard faces the sea.

 

  
The Pitcher Plant is Newfoundland's provincial flower. It grows in bogs. 

The unique "pitcher"-shaped leaves fill with water. Insects that fall in to the pitchers are unable to crawl out due to tiny downward-pointing stiff hairs inside. They eventually drown and are actually digested by the plant.

 

  
All along the highways one comes across these roadside gardens where people raise potatoes and other vegetables.
