Jul 13, 2018 - Springdale Newfoundland

July 13th We are fortunate to have excellent weather again today and we cannot help but visit the Table Lands again and take a very brief walk through the red mantle rock. It is early in the morning and no one is around and the views of this worn barren red rock are breath taking and the sound of the wind is all you can hear. I don’t know what it is about the physical geography of this place that so appeals to me, but I am drawn to it. We finally drive out of the Trout River area of Gros Morne Park and travel a new section of hwy (the Trans...

Jul 19, 2011 - Springdale, Newfoundland, Canada

At Springdale, Newfoundland we had a series of bus tours to see the sights. Our guide showed us every building in town. They are really trying to promote tourism here and they had volunteers doing quite a bit for us, including entertainment and cooking meals for us. We saw the Springdale Heritage Museum, the Harvey Grant Museum, a very old operating general store, the King's Point Whale Pavilion, and Rattling Brook Falls. We had several meals including Moose Stew, Moose Soup, Stuffed Chicken Breast and a Muscle boil.

Sep 11, 2010 - Headed For Gros Morne

Another misty morning. Up and out by 10:30. A slow start but we didn't have far to go. Arrived in Lewisporte at 11:30 and decided that since the weather was bad (very low clouds and rain) we would just sit in the trailer all afternoon so we kept going. Arrived in Grand Falls-Windsor about noon. Dropped into an RV dealer as this morning I noticed that I had poked a whole in the rubber roof covering and I needed something to fix it. Got some self levelling caulking which should work fine. Now I need a caulking gun. Found a mall that had a...

Aug 30, 2010 - Springdale, Newfoundland

Sunday August 29th – Springdale, Newfoundland From Gander, Newfoundland to Shannon, Ireland is the shortest distance crossing the Atlantic Ocean. This is why it has been such a strategic location in aviation & U.S. defense. We left Gander this morning a little later than usual because we had all been parked in rather close quarters & each needed to wait for the other to pull out. We finally left for a short drive today of 123 miles. On the way we stopped in Grand Falls-Windsor at the Salmon Interpretive Center & Salmon Ladder. Quite...

Jul 25, 2010 - Drive to Springdale, Newfoundland

After breakfast, we drove with my parents to the Gander airport. It was the largest in the world in runway area when it was built in the 1950s and can still land a plane of any size. It is an alternate space shuttle landing site. Everyone is so friendly here in Newfoundland... the security guard gave us a tour of the airport and showed us to the runway viewing platform. Hard to imagine the small airport with all the people from 9-11 crammed in it! Today there were 4 flights scheduled - to and from Halifax and St John’s. They also have a...

Jul 12, 2009 - Day 34 South Brook, Newfoundland

We woke up to another beautiful day, this time in Newfoundland. As always, when we are in a campground with WIFI, we check the internet early for messages. This morning, we find that the GoodSam Travel Log provider has given us the "Best Journal" award/decal and made our journal open to the general public for viewing if we approve. Since there has been no cussing or dirty pictures, we say go for it!! We will update this entry later as we don't know where we will stop tonight as we move towards St Johns in search of Bullwinkle and all that...

Jul 12, 2008 - Springdale, NFLD

We arrived Springdale on the 10th and we decided to stay 2 days and rest up just doing nothing. At least we are back on the internet and I got the pictures of St. Anthony posted. Today we are moving on again, I am not sure where but I guess Jane will tell me when she gets up, We took a litle ride yesterday and came across a couple of great views. One was Beachside and the opther was Rattling Brook Falls. At the Falls we went up a trail to the viewpoint. It was a pretty tough hike. We were climbing all the way and there was about 200 stairs...
