Rocky Harbour Sunset


Tues., June 26th – Let’s just say this was a day of diversity….weather wise. We drove through rain, snow, and sleet en route to the Gros Morne National Park. The temps didn’t get above 39* until later in the day. After a long side trip to a rinky dinky Walmart in Stephenville, we bumped and bounced over a long stretch of dirt road to get back on the Trans Canada Highway. We moved on to the KOA just beyond the Gros Morne Visitor Center. The sun popped out and temps rose to the low 50s just in time for us to take in the beauty of Norris Point and the Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse. We sat at the shoreline in Rocky Harbour where we watched the gorgeous sunset. At 10ish it was still daylight so we finished off our day with pie and ice-cream at a very tiny quaint restaurant in Rocky Harbour. We loved the waitress’s Newfoundlander accent!

Interesting Fact: Some Newfoundland dialects are similar to what one might hear in Ireland or parts of England (or a bizarre combination of both). Their dialect and language is so diverse, they have their own dictionary!
