After a good night’s sleep, we were up and rolling. First, we stopped at the Newfoundland equivalent of ICBC to sort vehicle registration and to figure out how we were supposed to sell the van to our Newfoundlander friends. Luckily, this didn’t take too long.
Mr. David hadn’t shaved in a very long time and therefore was due for a haircut. Of course we wouldn’t be touching his beard, just trimming his hair. We started in the backyard as we didn’t want to cut his hair inside. Despite the combined years of engineering education, we still managed to blow the circuit breaker. So I have said before: Home is where the van is.
Next, we ventured down to Fort Amherst, which is just across the harbour from Signal hill. This point hosted the oldest lighthouse in Newfoundland. It also served as a WWII gun battery to defend against German U-boats. The fortifications are worn down, but still in tact and sporting some eery looking graffiti.
The evening was spent hanging out with MUN engineering society folk as they made chilli for D-day (tomorrow). They made about ten gallons of chilli. It was quite amusing to watch.
