Dildo Provincial Park, Twillingate, NL

Dildo in the old days meat ‘safe place’ and this was a safe harbor, I asked. The park is lovely with lots of inlets, we camped right on the water so we just drag the kayaks down to put in. Lots of bugs here but our camp is secure from the rain, I hope. Yesterday was sunny high 80ies, today hot but partially cloudy. Kayaking we found jelly fish in an inlet. It is hard to believe it’s the ocean not a lake, the waters are so calm, then I spot a huge iceberg floating majestically by. A group of seven icebergs led a parade yesterday and Tom got cooler ice from a broken one. We did a hike in the evening by a pond to a peak where we could see…wait for it…more icebergs, then dined in a quaint fish house. I had huge crab legs and mussels, Tom had a cod burger, everything was fresh including the partridge berry sauce on the ice cream.

  1. How are you getting out there? Are there bridges? Hard to detect roads on my map. Looks like you’re on an island. Love, Jack
