The New Newfie in Newfoundland

After sleeping off our jet lag we flew across the country and ended up in Newfoundland Cory’s home province to meet Canadian Grandma for the first time!

After an obligatory turkey dinner we took our first outing in Corner Brook to Cooks point. We go there every time we are in Newfoundland for the spectacular views of the bay.
This time was the first time for us to go with a baby and this is how it went…

  • We got the bags ready to leave to house, remembered to pack diapers, snacks, drinks, spare clothes, toys, baby sunscreen, baby hat and baby hoodie (just in case).
  • We changed Buddy’s diaper.
  • A family member arrived at the house to meet Dax so we have a cup of tea and socialised for an house.
  • We put the diaper bag in the car and got ready to leave.
  • Buddy started crying and asking for milk.
  • I fed Buddy.
  • Buddy fell asleep.
  • We waited for 45minutes whilst Buddy slept.
  • Buddy woke up.
  • We changed his diaper.
  • We made it to the car and strapped Buddy into the car seat.
  • Buddy started crying so we gave in and let him watch ‘In the Night Garden’ on Cory’s phone.
  • Buddy stopped crying.
  • We arrived at Cooks point and enjoyed some spectacular views and Buddy spent 10 minutes waving at a statue….
  • Buddy started crying and asking for milk.
  • I fed Buddy.
  • Buddy fell asleep.
  • We sat at the top of Cooks point for 45 minutes whilst he slept.
  • He woke up and we could finally go home.

Needless to say it was a pretty successful trip and we shall probably go again before we leave Corner Brook.
