Norwegian expedition vessel visits St. Anthony
“It’s a great place, this historical site,” he said. “The Parks Canada site is fantastic, you feel goosebumps in seeing these sites that you’ve heard of and finally you see them and how visible it is that there is a trace of Norsemen having been here in this part of the world.
“I would add, the guides that we had at the Parks Canada site, especially Ethan, was a fantastic storyteller, precise in recounting the sagas and putting the sagas into local context there.”
He also really enjoyed the presentation at Norstead, which he said gave them the feeling of going back in time.
Karen and Wayne Brown chose to hike around St. Anthony.
“It’s cute,” Wayne said. “Everybody’s so friendly and one thing we noticed about the drivers here in town, they always slow down for pedestrians. If you’re walking on the side of the road, they make a point of not zipping by like we find in some villages. And the views, especially at the point, going up to the top, are amazing.”
Karen added they saw two humpback whales feeding off Fox Point, which was a real treat for the couple.
