We spent most of our time in Newfoundland in and near Gros Morne National Park. It is a wonderful park with large sections of private land, villages and services surrounded by the park. You can camp in one of eight campgrounds in the park or commercial campgrounds just outside the park - but between the outer borders of the park. Private campgrounds are closer to the visitor center than park campgrounds are. About half of the park campgrounds have showers, all the private ones have showers.
Commercial boat tours operate in the park and in Bonne Bay, which is surrounded by the park. Gros Morne is about 60 miles by 40 miles. It is easy to spend a week there and only see the highlights - which is what we did. Even with the cold and fog, it is a great experience.
The fog and rain are why we have so few pictures.
Eagle in the tree. On a boat tour of Bonne Bay. It was foggy enough that we could only see the shore when we got close. The crew felt bad and offered everyone a repeat tour for free. So, we came back two days later.
Woody Point and the Tablelands
Woody Point. The grey building is a good restaurant.
When we left the park, headed south to:
Captain Cook Memorial. Yes that Captain Cook. Honed his skills in Newfoundland before heading to the Pacific.
Corner Brook from the Cook Memorial. 2nd largest city in NF. First chance for good fruit and vegetables.
Why they needed lighthouses
Rose Blanche lighthouse. In use from 1873 till 1942.
That is all for Newfoundland. Next stop Nova Scotia and the trip home.
