Looks like a vodka label to me.

A few slices of prosciutto, some cloves of pickled garlic, some tasty little crackers, and a hunk of Tillamook cheese. I'm there.

I'm currently texting with my daughter and son-in-law, camping in Lake Louise. They have my RAV, which is good, because there are lighters, candles, survival blankets, rope and such, in nooks and crannies.
Trying to split kindling with no axe.
I advised them where to find stuff in the RAV and if all else fails, to ask a fellow camper for help. Just like here.

So, stay until you can't stay any longer! After all, you are retired, right? Like my old Aunt Mary used to say, you don't need to be home in time to milk the cows. When you see snowflakes in the air, it might be time to start meandering southward.

If you figure out a way to ship some of that ice cream without it melting, I'd be happy to have some!

Dave,

We have the small fridge, 1.9 cubic feet, in our Scamp. It has never travelled without Tillamock cheese. Right now there's a block of Tillamock, 2 year Cheddar plus some small specialty Tillamock. Our Seattle son regularly keeps us stocked.

Cod Fishing

Late this afternoon we were driving along the docks here in Rocky Harbor looking for people fishing for Cod. The Cod season is only open for a few weekends starting today. We found one guy fishing so we stopped to talk with him. He and his wife were waiting for a local fisherman (Fred) to get back to the dock to take them cod fishing. We asked them if we could go and they were happy to have us along. We didn't have any wet weather gear or cold weather gear but we went anyway. What an adventure...cutting through the waves in a small commercial fishing boat, salt water splashing on our faces! Once out of the bay the temperatures dropped at least 10 degrees. The fishing trip was remarkable! The locals catch Cod with hand jigs...they use 300 lb test line wrapped around a large wooden square with 3 lures attached. They drop it to the bottom and start yanking it up. Once a fish is on the hook, they pull it onto the boat by hand. Today was one of the most fantastic and spontaneously fun days we've had in Newfoundland!

One more month

Kirk and Connie,

In another month you'll have to apply for citizenship. Glad your fun continues.

How many did they catch?

Limits

The limit for Cod is 5 fish per person or 15 fish per boat. We caught the limit in less than 30 minutes. We had a fish on every time we dropped the line in. It was so much fun....and the fisherman...like practically every Newfie we've met...was such a nice man.

I know it's a fish story, but absolutely a great day well told, Kirk.

What a wonderful experience. Thanks for sharing it. Cod is such an iconic fish in the history of the north east coast - I know you will treasure this day. We're delighted that you and Connie are still having great NL adventures.

Connie's face holding her Cod tells the whole story, true joy. Fun to catch, great to eat. She slept with a little smile on her face, I'm sure.

Left Newfoundland

We left Newfoundland today, heading back to NH to visit with the relatives. The Caravan, our first ever, was a fun experience for Ginny and I and I believe for all that participated. Actually we still have one couple in Newfoundland and who knows if they'll ever leave.

Safe travels to all.

Who knows?

Laughing!! Who knows when we'll leave? A guide took us to a few great salmon pools yesterday. We had a couple of rises to our fly, and we saw a dozen or so salmon jumping out of the water. Another great day in Newfoundland!

Kirk, At the mouth of the Codroy River there were about 20 people casting, I assume for salmon.
