Sept 8 & 9 Central NL

On Thursday we awoke to a rainy day and decided that it would be a great day to just do some chotres and sit by the fire, read and enjoy each other’s company. After a trip to the Gander library to check Judy’s computer we had lunch and returned ‘home’ and spent the rest of the day just relaxing. Friday morning we had a leisurely breakfast, talked a while and before we knew it , it was lunch time so we eat and ran to get on the road to Grand Falls.

The only photo I can show is our final one of Gander.

Sept 7 Twillingate

What a wonderful day being chauffeured from Gander up to Twillingate and back through Lewisport.

The scenery was fantastic, lunch perfect and the company the best.

Come with us as we do the trip.

Sept 5 Bonavista

We departed St. John’s at 8 am after a farewell to Kathryn and drove to the Thorburn Lake campground just north of Clarenville. We dropped the trailer there and headed up to Bonavista. Some wonderful country and beautiful lakes and ocean views. At Cape Bonavista  I took a few shots and the camera battery went dead. But it was so fresh and warm. A simply gorgeous day. Ten back to the campground. Many had left as the Labour Day holiday is over but a few crying babies still about.

Grand Falls to Conception Bay South

A much nicer day today weatherwise. Were told that there would be construction delays of up to 2 hours enroute but lucked out at about 30 seconds. Arrived at CBS in time to join the Rotary Club of Avalon Northeast and celebrate the rededication of a park bench, ( the original was vandalized)  to the Late PDG Trevor Atkin who, with his dog spent many hours at the Rotary Park in Topsail, NL.

Port aux Basque to Grande Falls

The product below is a special product from Sam Adams that is available only as a gift from the owner. It is “beer” that is more like a cognac. Beautiful !!!!  Mike’s daughter is brewmaster at Sam Adams so he gets special treatment.

The photos below show the wonderful scenery between Port aux Basque and Grand Falls. A wonderful day with a special evening with Mike and Sheila Goodyear
