Aug 31, 2017 - Rocky Harbour to Port au Choix

As part of the Treaty of Utrecht, signed in 1713, which ended the War of Spanish Succession, France recognised that the island of Newfoundland was a British possession, though retaining the right to fish on a part of the coast which became known as the “French Shore.” A clause in the treaty read “Moreover it shall not be lawful for the subjects of France to fortify any place in the said Island of Newfoundland, or to erect any buildings there, besides stages made of boards, and huts necessary and usual for fishing and drying of fish; or to...

Well, we are still in Port au Choix (pronounced "portashoe") waiting on a replacement power steering pump and PTO parts. Hopefully they will arrive Monday or Tuesday and we can rejoin our RV caravan. This is a very small shrimp fishing village and we have become known as "The Texans with the broke-down motorhome". Everyone we meet seems to know us! That means we have been here too long! Hopefully we will have better news next week!

Jun 20, 2013 - Oceanside RV Park, Port Au Choix, Newfoundland

Today we drove 145 miles to a Lions Club Campground called Oceanside RV Park. We drove through some beautiful country today. Most of the drive was winding up and down through the mountainous terrain with mostly pine trees on each side of the road. Then we would come down around a corner and then the most beautiful panorama view of lakes or the ocean would come into sight with more mountains beyond. The mountains have snow patches across the horizon. At one point we were looking out at the ocean and we thought it was just a large wide lake...

It was a beautiful drive up the coast of Newfoundland today. We arrived at our campground where we found sites right on the beach. We looked out our coach windows and could see the surf on the beach and a beautiful sunset. It was, however, a little cold and windy. We even had to get out Trip's coat.

Today was a travel day with lots of beautiful secenery. The campground was right on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It was a little too cold for beach walking. Tried new dessert, figgy duff, which had no figs and tasted kind of like gingerbread with blueberries in it. It was very tasty.

Aug 24, 2010 - Port au Choix, NL - Oceanside RV Park

Our drive to Port au Choix was a nice, leisurely (really this time) 100 miles along great road for 95 miles of it. The scenery was absolutely stunning as most of the drive was along the seashore and every curve revealed another "this is prettier than the last" moment. We are staying at Ocean Side RV Park which is a Lion's Club operated park right on the shore - nothing but great views out our windshield! We have 30 amps and water we are at "our own risk" to drink as it isn't chlorinated. We will use our own from the tank. We have good...

Aug 23, 2010 - Monday Port-au-Choix NL

Bob’s route added about 2 hours to today’s drive. We left the main highway (“The Viking Trail”) and took an alternate less traveled route. The road was initially decent with almost no traffic. Rounding one turn, we were met by 4 moose on the side of the road with no chance for us to stop or shoulder to pull off on. Later on, a red fox ran across the road almost getting hit by the car which had just passed us. A few miles later, there were 2 very large moose at the edge of the woods and they quickly ran into a disappearing act. Bob then...

The Trip of 2010

Jul 10, 2010 - Port au Choix, NFL

7/10 101 miles north on PH430 we stopped for the night at a church parking lot in Port au Choix. Along the way we visited Arches Provincial Park to check out the natural stone arches formed by the sea. We toured the Port au Choix National Historic Site which houses artifacts from Indian and Eskimo tribes from up to 4000 years ago.

Sep 17, 2008 - Day 158 Port au Choix

Day 158 Wednesday 17th September Port au Choix pg 127 B17 After a good nite sleep we headed off from Rocky Harbour to see the sights of the Gros Morne National Park area. The Viking Trail winds its way through rolling hills and forested valleys, then even greater contrast down to the coastal lowlands where it meets the sea. We have been informed that we should be seeing some moose and caribou, but so far nothing, much to Denise’s disappointment. The coast line is full of rocky outcrops, steep cliffs and plenty of tiny coves and fishing...

Jul 26, 2008 - Saturday, Port Au Choix, NL (105 miles)

Rain followed us to Port Au Choix today. Once we left the National Park the roads weren’t nearly as good! Fun - rain and potholes. We arrived at the campground, owned by the local Lyon’s Club, that’s right on the beach. When we arrived there was no one in sight. Not a single tent or motor home on an empty beach. The Lyon’s Club building was in front of the campsites and a notice on the door said “Pick your own campsite.” The note also said they would be back after lunch. It was still misting rain and as gloomy a day as we had seen on the...

Jul 30, 2007 - Port au Choix - Older than Vikings. Much Older!!

It's Sunday morning and we're heading south again from St. Anthony area. Weather is fine after a night of rain. Our goal is to find a spot around Port au Choix where we can connect to the internet and phone. As we hit the turn off for Port au Choix I saw a sign for the Sea Echo Motel. I remembered a fellow camper telling me about this place. The weather had thickened at this point and we drove into town past Port Saunders in a rainy, thick fog. For $15 a night we had a site facing Gargamelle Bay with water and 30 amp hook-up and wifi and a...
