dildo days

 We overnighted in Square Pond campground, mainly due to their wi-fi connection. Another long night plowing through the video, blog, etc.

 The average bedtime is about 2:30 am. Usually we have a few cocktails while we work. Best guess so far for alcohol consumed: two bottles of Old Sam rum, ten dozen beer or so, three quarters of a bottle of gin, one bottle of vodka, one and a half bottles of scotch and a bottle of red wine. Seafood comsumption: cod, lobster, scallop, crab, cod tongue, salmon, shrimp and squid.

Mid-day we made the determination to go to the lower part of Trinity Bay to cover that area, more specifically a town named Dildo.

 Yes, we shot the obvious… Dale with the Dildo road sign. There’s a clever bit of guerrilla advertising attached to the sign. It’s a handpainted sign. It advertises a wood shop which sells replica Dildo signs and other souvenirs. Sure it’s a small sign, but everyone stops to get their picture taken.

According to the Newfoundland dictionary a Dildo is a small round stick or dowel fastened to the gunwhale of a rowboat to hold the oar in place, just in case you were wondering

 All 12 year old boy humour aside, its a wonderful town with friendly people who take the name with good natured jokes and chuckles. We met a couple of young adults at the music festival inside the local hall and had a chance to take some great photos. That all said here’s the view from the harbour, absolutely stunning.

 Now we are heading down to the last of the four bay tour, which is where we started. That would be Conception Bay.
