  • The results of 4 weeks of camping

    I haven’t posted in quite awhile, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been carving. We spent the month of July camping in northern Newfoundland, so I took a few blanks, and a couple of knives with me, and when I wasn’t swatting mosquitoes and blackflies I managed to get a little carving done. I waited until we got home before I burned the details and painted them. So here is the results of a wonderful summer ( I’d recommend it to anyone … ) and a couple of pics of a few of the MANY icebergs that we saw on our travels.

    Well done Soggy, Newfoundland in summer would be a delight, except for the black flies and skeeters! Some beautiful country up there. Glad you got some quiet time for carving.

              Looks like a nice vacation and better when coupled with carving. Nice pieces there Soggy and the ones in the middle, off the boards, look like new ones? All look great...

                        Hi Soggy, Glad you are back. I didn't know there were any icebergs left. Always great to see your wonderful carvings. Great vacation.
                        If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                          Thanks for all the great comments guys,... Tom , each year is different when it comes to icebergs . It takes them two years to get to the coast of Newfoundland from the time they break off the glaciers on the west coast of Greenland. Then it depends a lot on wind direction and currents as to how close they actually come to Newfoundland . Some may pass by very close, others may be several hundred miles off shore. The best (most likely) time to see them is from Early June to late July, but they have been known to pass by as late as September on ocassion

                            So much for global warming, I'm going to believe you next time. It just keeps reminding us how awesome nature is. I'm still glad you are back.
