Moose are not indigenous to Newfoundland, but have prospered since being introduced in 1904. There are many moose hazard warning signs.
While there is now a huge population, we only spotted about four moose.
A very frequent sight near the coast were piles of lobster and crab traps stacked near the roadways.
We were intrigued by these doorways which have a nickname of "mother-in-law doors".
As part of Newfoundland joining the Confederation, building codes required front and back doors for fire safety, but did not specify that steps were required. Since the traditional entrance is via a mud-room next to the kitchen, the mandated doors are often left as pictured.
Newfoundland has a huge number of both salt and fresh water bodies of all sizes. This makes for many picturesque islands.
During our visit we saw lots of different wildflowers, including Fireweed.

We are amazed at the number of vehicles that these ferries can accommodate!
