Here are some pictures we have taken:
Manic 5 dam
Manic 5 again
Churchill Falls everything building. It houses the hotel, restaurant, theatre, gym, Post Office, bank, schools, hockey rink, library, grocery store,and more. All in one site to save heating costs.
A generator apart for repairs. 1000' underground!
One of the tunnels. Over 16 miles of tunnels. The power plant is carved out of solid granite. No blasting to prevent fracturing thr remaining granite.
Special truck to transport 200 ton transformers
Typical pond/islands. Too many of these to count.
Some bad road. Normally the road is great, but they had heavy rain last week and this is the result.
Small fishing village.
Today we took the ferry to the island of Newfoundland. Tomorrow we head up to Lanse au Meadow, the site of a Viking village 1000 years ago.
The fish and chips (cod) is very good. We had some bakeapple (Cloudberry) pie and some rhubarb soup! Bakeapple is a local berry. Food is really quite good so far.
But, the weather still cold and damp. Maybe July/Aug/Sept is a better time to visit.
