7/9/2016: My host was up for a hike, so we walked over to Signal Hill. In the distance, there was a giant iceberg that must have been miles across. The sun was shining bright for the first few hours, anyway. In the afternoon, I went to a suburb to catch a boat to the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. By this point, the cold and rainy weather had come in making it difficult to stay outside during the boat trip. Later, the host and another guest went over to the bar to get screeched in with a bunch of people from Saskatchewan.
