Good morning everyone,
Sorry about Wednesday and Thursday. I screwed up the Wed post and fell asleep listening to trial stuff Wednesday night. All in all, a poor showing indeed.
Have a great weekend, all!
More from Newfoundland — L’Anse aux Meadows, on the Great Northern Peninsula, is the site of the only confirmed Viking site in North America outside of Greenland. There are remains of eight buildings, from approximately a thousand years ago, though the artifacts suggest it was probably not a permanent settlement and may just have been a base to repair boats.
This is the view from L’Anse aux Meadows. It happened to be a sunny day, but the enthusiastic winds would have made Leif Erikson feel right at home. You can just see Labrador as a blue smudge near the horizon.
