Doors at the Ends of the Earth – L’Anse Aux Meadows, Newfoundland
For such a small place L’Anse Aux Meadows on Newfoundland’s northern peninsula turned out to be very fruitful for doors. We visited reproductions of two Viking settlements in previous posts here and here.
In between those visits we hung around the village to soak in the remoteness of the place and to get an appreciation for what life is like in a spot that feels like it could be the ends of the earth.
On the northern tip of Newfoundland, wind-swept grassy meadows, sky, sea, and rocks dominate the views in every direction.
The wind and the elements are hard on man-made structures in these parts,
and constant maintenance is needed.
We found that many of the homes, sheds, and boathouses in the area have otherworldly qualities to them.
Not because of anything magnificent in terms of design or inventive architecture,
but because in tiny villages that are this remote, one can’t help but feel like you’ve stepped out into a completely different world.
Having grown up and lived most of my life in a city surrounded by millions of other people I have now come to appreciate the peace and quiet of life in the burbs.
However, as much as I like the tranquility of life outside of the city, I don’t know how I would cope if I was ever dropped off in a place this remote for any serious length of time.
But it sure is a beautiful place to visit 🙂
