Newfoundland Trip

We are traveling from Michigan to Newfoundland via the south side of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway. We will be in Newfoundland for two weeks plus. The home trip will probably be through Canada via the old walled city of Quebec.

Here are a few pictures taken so far.

Crossing Lake Champlain via ferry








We had all of Daisy's papers with us but Canadian Customs saw her on the dash with her tags and never ask any questions about her. We crossed the boarder into Canada in Maine.

The next few are entering and on Nova Scotia.

Re: Newfoundland Trip

The next series were taken on Nova Scotia and at the ferry from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland which is a 5-6 hour trip.

Joanne on the beach at Louisbourg, NS. The recreated French city/fort of Louisbourg is behind her. Louisbourg was one of the last major French cities to fall in North America to the English and end the French domination of northern North America.



Louisbourg as seen across the bay.



Very early in the 2010 season. We were the only campers in this campground at the now fishing villiage of Louisbourg.

Re: Newfoundland Trip

A few early pictures from Newfoundland. Night time temperature here can vary from 32F to 40F and the daytime from 45F to 55F. Hope to get some pictures of icebergs in the next few days.

First night on island


Again campground is almost completely empty.


Local shore line roads. Great for a 'B' type of RV.

Re: Newfoundland Trip

Nice Len!

Keep up the trip report, I'm tired of the Death Valley reports
and it's good to see someplace new.





I lied. I like all the trip reports.

Re: Newfoundland Trip

While driving across western Newfoundland we got lost and ended up on ROUTE 66!!!













We did Route 66 in 2003 and had a front license plate from that trip. I donated
it to his collection. When I ask if he would like it, it took him no more than
2 microseconds to grab his screw driver and start removing it.

Re: Newfoundland Trip

We had breakfast in a small harbor restaurant while camping just outside of Rocky Harbour, NL.
This was the view while eating caribou sausage with our eggs.

The waitress said Labrador caribou tastes better then Newfoundland caribou and our sausage was made from Labrador caribou.



Jo working on her trip log.



Newfoundland has a 80,000 moose population. They are not native to the island. A pair was brought over in the 1890's and two more pairs in the 1900's. Now there are over 80.000!!
On the other hand caribou are native and there are only 8,000 of those on the island.



This day was say 7 moose along the road. It is NOT recommended to drive above the posted speed on this island.



A view from the road



A beach flower



Actual size of the flower



Lunch stop along the road. Like to put the top up to stretch our legs
while preparing lunch.
