Jul 21, 2008 - Monday, Corner Brook, NL (116 miles)

Monday, July 21 When we left the campground we drove part of the way in the rain today. By the time we got to Corner Brook it had quit, although it was cooler. It’s the first day we needed jeans instead of shorts or capri’s on the trip. Corner Brook is the second largest city in Newfie and located on the hill-flanked Humber Arm of Humber Bay, which flows into the Bay of St. Lawrence. It’s a well-protected ocean inlet and a famed salmon fishing area. The city center is a large paper mill that’s still in operation. That, along with the...

Aug 31, 2007 - Rocky Harbor, Nfld

Today it was kind of rainy, but decided to try and take the boat trip to the fiords at Gros Morne National Park. We got out on the water for about 1/2 hour when the captain said that the fog was coming down too close to the water and we had to turn around and they refunded the full price of the ticket, what a deal. from there we headed towards Corner Brook where we met up with Bert & Emily Joyce. friends that Herb met many years ago on his trip to Newfoundland.

Aug 29, 2007 - Rocky Harbour to Corner Brook, Newfoundland

Today we are heading to Corner Brook to have a new set of sprockets, a chain and a rear tire installed. The chain and sprockets were installed in Victoria, BC and have have roughly 12,000 km on them. The rear tire has about 9,500 km on it. We could probably stretch a few more km out of them but it could also be quite a distance to the next motorcycle shop. It was already warmer than yesterday but still overcast. The trip to Cornerbrook will entail backtracking over familiar ground so we did not spend any time stopping to sight-see. By the...

Aug 24, 2007 - Newfoundland

Our last day and a 200 mile drive to the ferry. Gregg elected to just do the 200 miles. I took off in the Jeep and did a loop of about 60 more miles out of Corner Brook to see a little more Newfoundland coast. Drove through quaint fishing towns along the Bay of Islands, beautiful bay with several small but tall islands within. Corner Brook is the province of Newfoundland & Labrador's 2nd largest city and has only 20,000 residents! There are only 500,000 or so in the entire large province and only 30,000 or so live on the mainland in...

Jun 26, 2006 - Corner Brook, NFLD

June 26 - Corner Brook, NFLD We'll, that's it for traveling east and north. From now on we are slowly making our way back to British Columbia. Another milestone in the trip has been reached. Makes us a little sad. But, we've got a long drive ahead of us, so let's get going. We're heading back to at least the Gros Morne NP area today, as we need to make it to the ferry for the 28th. The weather was more clear than the drive up, so we got to see some of the Long Range mountains and more of the coast. There were many wood piles on the side of...

Aug 2, 2005 - A Race for the Ferry

It was delightful to wake up in such a cosy place. We had a great and relaxing breakfast over cartoons. I repacked the van, checked, checked and double checked for missing items and away we went. I was so hoping to have enough time to make it round the other side of the Cabot Trail but when I asked the locals they all said the same thing - not enough time. Well it would have to wait for next time. I decided that at the very least we had enough time to explore Highlands National Park a bit. I pulled into Ingonish Beach (part of the National...
