Our Something Saturdays for this weekend included seeing capelin rolling in at Beachy Cove, and visiting the Colony of Avalon in Ferryland. We also went to the Captain's Table restaurant in Mobile, that we hadn't been to before. Plus, it was Luke's first Canada Day in Canada!
The beach was also divided by streams so in order to get from one side of the beach to the other, we had to make pathways with big rocks and balance our way across. Here are some photos of our capelin adventure.
At the Colony of Avalon, there is a great guided tour of the dig and we walked through where the village once was. The original cobblestone is still intact and the archaeologists have excavated various buildings throughout the settlement. We also watched a bread making demonstration and saw a mock-up of a 17th century kitchen.
Afterwards, we had a picnic on the beach and some of us enjoyed throwing rocks in the water. Here are some pictures from our visit.
