Road to Rose Blanche Lighthouse

My eye was swollen from a bite. I'm in my bug net...

Diamond Cove

Tues., July 3rd – We finished our days in Newfoundland exploring the villages and vistas of the southwestern coast below Port aux Basques. Our first stop along this granite coast took us to Rose Blanche and the 1871 restored granite lighthouse. From there we visited the little fishing village of Margaree where Steve fished last evening with his guide, Chris. We had dinner in Margaree at the SeaShore Restaurant before taking a quick tour of the tiny community of Diamond Cove. Next, Carla and I walked the long boardwalk to the high cascading Barachois Falls. We finished off our day with a drive over the rough dirt roads through Cape Ray and the CT Cheeseman Provincial Park. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and diversity of the extraordinary island of Newfoundland. Tomorrow we ferry back to Nova Scotia.
