Aug 1, 2008 - Friday, Twillingate, NL (95 miles)

Driving northward toward the Atlantic Ocean there is one cove after another, each with a small town or village, literally making the map almost impossible to read. We stayed at Twillingate which is almost to the end of the road. The last few towns are actually little islands joined by a series of causeways that don’t look longer than what we would call a short bridge. Lonely Planet guide book said “the first thing you should do is go to a place called Prime Berth”, so we did. It is a private fishing museum with a guided tour, or you could...

We drove to Twillingate today through several small fishing villages and lots of beautiful scenery. Upon checking in at our campsite at Peytons Woods RV Park we found out they have a dinner theater tonight. We decided to go and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had cod for dinner and the show started at 8:00 PM. The skits were hilarious and the songs were excellent. We even got a recipe for the dessert.On our way home we took some sunset pictures. Sunday we drove around in the morning and took pictures. After lunch we went to the Winery....

Jul 9, 2008 - another map update

You have probably guessed that when I put in text I can only put in one map location so I have to use this device to keep showing places on the map. And of course the map program draws straight lines from point to point whereas our route is anything but straight.

Arrived in Twillingate at the north end of Newfoundland. Twillingate is the "Iceberg Capital", but unfortunately we did not see any icebergs. Too late in the year. This evening we took in a Newfie Dinner Theatre called "All around the circle". Very interesting and entertaining.

Sep 3, 2006 - Clarenville to Twillingate

Sept.3/06 It was a warmer day today, which is nice as had to wait to get a tire fixed. Canadian Tire said they wouldn't do it because it was an inside tire on the truck, so we had to phone emergency road service to arrange to get it fixed. While waiting we soaked the salted cod so it would be ready for dinner. One thing about these meals, they take some planning, but are easy. Everything goes in one pot, potatoes, onions, carrots, cod and cabbage. There was a nail in the tire, at 2:00 it was fixed and we headed to Gander. We stopped at...

Twillingate is on the North Coast just up from Gander on Route 340. It is famous for Icebergs and has a rugged coastline. The weather was extremely wet so very few photographs were taken. We did enjoy a concert by a group of mature local ladies called Split Peas.

Jul 27, 2006 - Day 25 Twillingate, NL

Day 25 - Twillingate, NL: Left Wally World at 8 and stopped for fuel. You don't even want to look at the price of diesel or your total bill!!! It was a cool 60 degrees and still cloudy. It was a pretty drive, much along the coastline. Never saw so many islands and bodies of water of various sizes. Small villages are built on the hillsides of the rocks. Newfoundland is called "The Rock" and you don't have to question where they got that name. Someone was told that there is 17,000 kilometers of shoreline, over 10,000 miles. We got into Peyton...

Jul 25, 2006 - Boyd's Cove & Twillingate

Drove the Jeep to Twillingate, an old fishing village, on the coast. On the way, we stopped at the Beothuk Interpretive site near Boyd's Cove. The Beothuk were a native people who used this area as a main summer camp between 1650 and 1720. They were a small tribe of hunter-gathers. They became extinct in the early 19th century due to a combination of disease and battles with early European settlers. Twillingate is an area to watch icebergs come down "Iceberg Alley" and to see whales. Neither were in evidence today. After we returned to...
