L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland

A beautiful day to remember from our August holidays in Newfoundland.

L'Anse aux Meadows is a National Historic Site located on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.  At this archeological site you'll find reconstructions of three Norse buildings, the earliest known European settlement in the New World. The archaeological remains at the site were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.

The history and discovery of this area is very interesting.  It's also a very pretty place to visit with a lovely walk and trails around the shoreline.


  1. Gorgeous photos. They look like commercial that always makes me want to get on a plane ;)

  2. I know what you mean Brigitte. Nfld has some of the best travel advertising I think and it doesn't disappoint!

  3. Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing.

  4. These are very beautiful photos. They look like paintings! Gorgeous skyscapes.

  5. Isn't it funny that we both posted photos of beautiful skies on the same day? :)

  6. That is funny. You know...two great minds...I was thinking when posting mine that they would make lovely paintings by you :)
