Jul 16, 2017 - Blue Fin RV Park (7/12 - 7/13/1

As much as we hated to leave Celtic Rendezvous, we have moved over towards Holyrood. We are close by where the hikers were going to stay at Butter Pot Provincial Park. They opted out of staying there and tent camping because the torrential downpour that got them the night they stayed on the trail was just too much and Gordon put his foot down. No more camping! So they stayed in St. Johns at a motel that was much more comfortable! We stayed in an RV park near Holyrood. It isn't much to look at, just a large parking lot, but it had full...

Jun 28, 2017 - Holyrood, never to be confused with Hollywood!

Moving day today in order to get closer to St. John’s so that, with an early start in the morning, we can arrive in the city and hit the ground running! Our route of choice was along Trinity Bay where several smaller communities are strung out by the shoreline. It looks to be more of a vacation location now as there were more cabins compared to the fisher homes we have been seeing on the coast. Being fairly close to the city and in such a pretty spot it is understandable that this area is for summer use almost exclusively. Ending our day in...

Jul 26, 2010 - Holyrood, Newfoundland

7/26 – 7/29 It took us three days to travel 341 miles (PH340, PH1) to Holyrood, Newfoundland. The first night we stayed at a Wal-Mart parking lot in Grand Falls. Our refrigerator has not been lighting correctly and we hoped to pick up a part. No such luck, we will have to wait until we return to the states. The next day we had a lunch stop at the Visitor Center in Terra Nova National Park where they had an interesting sea-life discovery center. That night we parked in an ice hockey arena parking lot in the town of Whitbourne. In Holyrood...

Sep 4, 2008 - Grace and Cupid

One a Harbour - the other the town where it all began - Thursday, September 4 We got out early this morning. It was sunny and bright in Northern Bay, but as we drove south it began to cloud up. By the time we got to Carbonear it was overcast, and by the time we got to Harbour Grace it was beginning to rain. Whether you consider Harbour Grace to be famous or infamous - it is a well known town and port on the Avalon Peninsula. Mariners know it can be dangerous, and a famous shipwreck still stands there to prove it. The S.S. Kyle hit an...

Sep 3, 2007 - Trinity to Holyrood, Newfoundland

The much improved weather continued this morning with blue skies and sunshine. We left Trinity and headed south to once again hook up with the TransCanada highway to continue our exploration of Newfoundland on the Avalon Peninsula. The Avalon is the most populated area of the island and the most visited. Our first stop once we reached the Avalon was a little harbour town call Brigus. This is a very charming little town but definately becoming upscale with the saltbox houses oversadowed by new cottages & homes while the fishing boats in the...
