Sep 26, 2008 - Newfoundland or the Ends of the Earth

Helloooooo! Helloooooo! We're back! Had you wondered if we'd fallen off the planet? It almost feels like we have! We're in Newfoundland and it feels like we're out in the boondocks! My Rogers cell phone has no coverage so far. It's been a long haul these last two days. Yesterday we started driving around 7 am while the kids were still sleeping (shhh, don't tell the authorities)! We were in 3 provinces in one day; we started in PEI, drove through Nova Scotia, and set sail to Newfoundland through the night--ok, maybe we didn't hit...

Sep 16, 2008 - Day 157 Gros Morne National Park

Day 157 Tuesday 16th September Gros Morne National Park pg 127 C17 We endured an extremely windy night with the van rocking and swaying all night. The wind is a result of hurricane Ike which hit Texas a week ago. It is hard to imagine that the weather in the Caribbean flowing through to Newfy. The morning drive included rain sunshine and wind while heading to Deer Lake where we had lunch, accessed our emails thanks to a local hot spot. It was only a short drive to Gros Morne NP. By the time we got to the NP we were starting to get some...

Jul 14, 2008 - Chill-out in

I sleep for nine and a half hours! I must have been pretty tired or the beer did me in – it did taste pretty good, Black Horse, a newfie beer! The woman owner of the B&B is pretty friendly but she is also a business woman. She gives me her business card and some other trinkets. Really, she’s pleasant and offers me this and that at the breakfast table but her grumpy husband comes down and I try and pass the time of day with him. “Did you work on the railroads”, I ask as there is a huge picture of a train hanging above the fire place. “Yes”...

Jul 5, 2008 - Gros Morne, NFLD

We arrived yesterday after about a 3 hr drive. The campground is nothing like we had in Port Aux Basque but it is only for 2 nights. We took a ride around part of Gros Morne National park. It has some great scenery. Last night we went to pub night at a local bar. There was a group singing and doing comedy. We had a fantastic evening and never got home until after 12.

Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain. But it is absolutely gorgeous here. Click here Visit Gros Morne to see this beautiful park. Forecast for tomorrow is sunny and we have reservations for a boat trip on a fjord. If you will all pray for us for good weather, we will send some wonderful photos! OK, for all of you who are writing about how much you liked the scarecrows, you can now go back to my Cape Breton pictures and see a couple more of them.

Aug 1, 2007 - Gros Morne - Goin' & Boondocking Success

Today is August 1st. Manon and I were married 9 years ago today in a small white church in Sutton, Quebec. Today we'll drive past dozens of small white churches I'm sure. But first, I'll treat Manon and Emma to a restaurant breakfast. This will be only our third restaurant meal since we started our trip. We are very pleased with ourselves for this record. Not sure the local merchants would be so pleased. For sure, by not dining in the local café's and diners, we are passing up one of the big attractions in Nfld - homestyle cooking. Last...

Our Adventure

Jul 26, 2007 - Gros Morne National Park Comin' - Dramatic Vistas Everywhere

Today, Wednesday, we moved north (east) all the way up to Gros Morne National Park. Breathtaking mountains and fjords. You've seen shots from this park in any ad campaign for Newfoundland. And you've seen old ladies hanging out their laundry to dry but I digress...again... We stopped at a couple of look-outs and then at Rocky Harbour RV Park. At first glance, this is just a big gravel parking lot. But or site was up at the back and turned out to be treed and quiet. The parking lot style set-up seems to be geared for the frequent caravans...

Aug 23, 2006 - Rocky Harbor and Gros Morne National Park

We left early Monday morning for a 200 mile move to Gros Morne National Park, near Rocky Harbor, NL. It was a beautiful drive through mountains and valleys along the coast of the northern peninsula of Newfoundland.

Aug 22, 2006 - Doyle NF Cow Head Harbour

337 km today. We made our way from Doyle to Cow Head Harbour where we parked the RV's at the Grands Morne Shallow Bay National park campground. The trip up was wet and cloudy until we got over the mountain pass to Rocky Harbour. Then the sun came out allowing beautiful views of the vistas. We even saw whales in the bay. Shallow Bay has the best sand beach we have seen so far. Miles and miles of it. Beautiful.

Aug 16, 2006 - To Rocky Harbor, NL

Botwood to Rocky Harbour, NL - 182 miles - August 16, 2006 Our schedule today included more miles than normal, we had an optional stop at a "bug" museum, and a 4:45 pm orientation at the Gros Morne National Park. We were dry camped and toads had not been unhooked, so all that was required to leave was to pull slides and jacks and roll. Even that proved too much for Bob & Mary who created lots of excitement when they started to move without retracting the jacks. Got that corrected and then created LOTS of attention as everyone tried to stop...

Aug 5, 2006 - Rocky Harbour, NL - Viking Trail & Gros Morne National Park

Today is a driving day from St. Anthony to Rocky Harbour, a distance of about 230 miles. It rained quite a bit and we stopped for lunch. We saw one moose along the way. Several little garden plots thrived along the side of the road; yet, seemingly, there were no homes anywhere in sight. Once we reached the coast, we drove along the Viking Trail south through Gros Morne National Park. We arrived at our campground, Gros Morne RV Park. We'll be here 3 nights and everyone is excited because we have internet access again. We had supper at home...
