The Sun Shines On Us


Going north

Wow, what a difference when the sun is shining.  Gros Morne was impressive in the rain.  It is spectacular in the sun.  It wasn’t totally clear when we passed this boat in drydock, but it just kept getting better.




Going south

We stopped again at the lobster Cove light.  Our fisherwoman guide was there too.

The "tickle" is between the hills.

Then we stopped at Two Arms and a Tickle.  That’s not something erotic.  “Arms” are bays and the “tickle” is the shallow entrance into the bays.  Here a shallow warm tickle protected the deep cold arms creating an environment that supported an amazing variety of wildlife from starfish and strange cold loving corals to seals and whales (later in the year).

Enjoying our day, we walked a trail to South Brook Falls where water tumbles 40 meters over billion year old granite.  Along the trail, we saw what a moose does in the woods – several times.

Trail is below falls.

Returning to Bonne Bay, we saw Woody Point in the sun and discovered that when we were at the 175 million year old Tablelands in the fog, we weren’t on a mesa, we were in a valley!  We could have walked that trail forever and never would have had a view down.

The colors were so much brighter at Trout River, and we met a lady who supplements her income knitting socks and gloves.


About ralietravels

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.
