Elliston on the Bonavista peninsula has the best spot for viewing puffins. Walk a short distance to the top of a rock and just across the way thousands of nesting puffins. I hear they swim all the way back to Greenland after the babies are ready to go. Their survival rate is low – one egg per year and 20% chance of survival due to the love of the gulls for egg mcpuffin breakfasts.
Elliston’s other claim to fame is the high number of root cellars per capita, but we found quite a few in Twillingate also.
