Title: Necessity is in Port au Choix I Newfoundland

Our position is 50:42:31N 57:21:07W
We had an easy overnight sail up here from Cape St. George. There was too little wind so unfortunately the engine was running far more than I like. A major low bringing rain and fog was chasing us and we wanted to keep ahead. Fog is particularly bad in an area that has the odd iceberg. We got into Port au Choix with a light drizzle, but no fog. A few hours later the fog is here. With no fog we were able to spot the whales. There were some big ones, but I am not sure what they were. They looked a bit like blue or fin, but at a distance there are others that are somewhat similar. It is always a grand sight.
We planned to go to Port Saunders, but getting there we found out that the next place was a much better harbour, and also closer to l'Anse aux Meadows - the Viking site. Port au Choix is a major fishing port and ideal for stocking up. We will probably use this place to provision for Greenland before we go up to l'Anse aux Meadows on monday.
