Splashing along

As if those 6 months in Europe weren’t enough, Peter and I spent three weeks in the North Atlantic, traveling from the English Channel, up the west coast of Scotland, over to the Hebrides, then to Iceland, then Greenland, then Newfoundland, then down (or up, as a New England friend corrected me) the St Lawrence Seaway, to Quebec and ending in Montreal. One Terrific Itinerary!! We kayaked, zodiaced, hiked and steamed around icebergs, open ocean, craggy mountains, puffin nesting cliffs, tiny fishing villages perched on ancient lava beds, and spent time both on and inside glaciers. Also learned a lot about the Vikings and those early Norse settlements.

A part of our planet we need to take better care of, that’s for sure. Here’s a few photos.
