We said a farewell to St. John’s early in the morning and turned Morris west on the Trans Canada and started out journey back to British Columbia. The trip home will be a bit different with fewer secondary highways and more of the Trans Canada as we take a slightly different routing back to see friends and family. We stopped at an RV dealership and got parts to finally fix the screen door that has been broken since the New Brunswick storm and to pick up a few supplies. Our ferry to Cape Breton leaves in 6 days and we still want to see a few places in NFLD that that we passed by on the way east.
We made it to Howley, a small community on the shores of Grand Lake. It is surprisingly hot and clear skies for the afternoon and evening. So hot I contemplated a swim in Grand Lake to cool off but the bugs arrived with a vengeance so instead I cooled off in the evening night air. We didn’t even put our chairs under cover because the balmy night seemed to indicate that warm clear weather was ahead. I guess I still can’t read NFLD weather yet!
