Waiting on ferry to take us to Labrador.

We actually landed in Quebec close to the border of Labrador.  The bus backed right onto the ferry, loaded us, and we spent the day touring around the Southern most part of Labrador.

 Cute picture at restaurant we ate at.

 Red Bay is where a huge production of whale oil was done in the late 1500's and early 1600's.  Annually as many as 2,000 Basques from Spain and France came to Labrador to hunt whale and process oil to ship back to Europe.
 Whale boat found under water in Red Bay.

Minature of a whale processing operation.

Back to Newfoundland we traveled to Deer Lake and visited a very nice insectarion.  These are giant cockroaches from South America.

Only in Newfoundland.  At the end of the tour at the insectarion, the owner on the right and his best friend played some Newfy songs for us.
