We backtracked to Wiltondale and then along Bonne Bay to the visitor’s centre at Woody Point. The visitor centre had an art gallery in it. There was an amazing show of artwork (sculptures) that were created from garbage that washed up on the beach. We took a lot of photos.
We drove to Trout River, a small authentic fishing village. We visited a small salt box house that had been preserved and opened as a museum.
We stopped and hiked up through the Tablelands. Both Bernice and I took a lot of photos. What an interesting site.
We headed back through Gros Morne. The Gulf of the St. Lawrence was on the west side and unbelievable mountains on the right. We drove through very mountainous areas with high lakes, crazy turns that took us up and down. All the trees farther up the peninsula have a definite slant from the constant westerly winds.
En route to Cape Onion we saw little fenced gardens growing mostly potatoes along the 430 highway – even in the barren areas across the top from Eddie’s Cove to the St. Anthony airport.
We arrived at the Tickle Inn just in time to bring our things in and sit down to dinner. We had a wonderful dinner and great conversation with the host and hostess and the other guests.
Thank you again to Bernice for taking such good notes along the way.
