We worked our way around the Bonavista Peninsula and made sure to try a local delicacy – cod tongue. Battered and fried tongues taste pretty good. Supposedly, the only better is the cheek.
The little town of Elliston is known as the ‘root cellar capital of the world’. Who could pass that up?
Most of the root cellars in town were open and available for browsing. A few still had some potatoes inside.
More interesting was the puffin colony here. They all live in holes on a tiny island just a 100 feet offshore. We sat on the ledge and watched them hop around for a while. Blueberries are in season, so we picked and ate a few for good measure.
Eating strange new foods, exploring underground cellars, watching wildlife and picking berries. A solid afternoon of fun.
