Sept 13 Western Newfoundland & home

We left Deer Lake and drove to Corner Brook in the morning and then on to Stephenville where we had coffee with Eclub member David Anstey and then headed west to take a tour through Port au Port, out to Cape Saint George, back through Lourdes to Stephenville and on to Port aux Basque. The wind was very strong and blustery and at times shook the truck and trailer. Fortunately it died down late in the afternoon and our crossing on the ferry to Nova Scotia on Wednesday was very calm.

The scenery was wonderful but not quite as spectacular as the trip tp Trout Point.

Finally I will leave you with two photos of my favourite friend happy to be going home but sad to leave her new friend.

Sept 12 Gros Morne

Sept 12

We left Deer Lake leaving the trailer in the campground and headed for our first stop in Woody Point. Then overland to Trout River and back and up to Rocky Harbour and Cow Head.

The scenery was absolutely unbelievable and breath taking. We took over 150 photos and 15 gig of video. That leaves me with 35 gig of GoPro video to work on when we get home.

The weather was perfect with sun and cloud leaving mottled mountains and hazy horizons.

These photos are not in order but complaints must be accompanied by a certified cheque of $100.

Enjoy.

Sept 11 We remember

We left Grand Falls this morning and headed west. At the same time a 1 meter piece of steel from the south tower of the World Trade Center was heading east to Gander. We had hoped to see the convoy but turned off to Kings Point before we met it.

Kings Point is a beautiful little spot and we had lunch there and headed back to Deer Lake to see the Insectarium.  Yes, in the middle of nowhere in Der Lake, NL there is a world class Insectarium.

A beautiful butterfly exhibit where you go right into the room with them and they fly all about and even land on you. A great place.

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 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.
