We went north again - just a little bit - and made our landfall at the coast of Labrador. It offered us a scenic landscape with autumn-coloured woods, wild salmon-rivers and rough seashores. Just a handful of small settlements is spred along thise remote coastline.

The little village of Red Bay with app. 260 inhabitants had 3 museums informing about the basque whaling-era, when hundreds of men went over here each year to hunt for the whales in this waters. This period is long gone, and so we could enjoy a lot of whale-sightings today.
