The Twillingate part of our trip through Newfoundland is at an end, and we have seen many beautiful things. However, the prime reason for visiting Twillingate was the reputation of this town as the Iceberg Capitol of the World. There weren’t any icebergs for us though, this is what the icebergfinder map looked like when we were here:

Do you see that big empty circle smack in the middle of the map? That’s us. After seeing this discouraging sight we drove out of the red area in search of other icebergs within a few hours driving of Twillingate. To make a 4 day story short: we saw 2 distant icebergs and plenty of other picturesque things along the way.

Here are some pictures of our trip to Twillingate:

Because there weren’t any icebergs nearby, we got to explore a lot of small communities like this one.

This place was one of the sites marked by icebergfinder.com, but the iceberg had moved on unfortunately.
