Day 5: Twillingate

We leave Rocky Harbour and drive to Hwy 1. We see a very different aspect of Rocky Harbour and Gros Morne… The sun is shining!

The drive to Twillingate is quite long. Lots of construction and…pot holes like at home. The only difference is that in Newfoundland, they warn you ha!

In Grand Forks, we stop at a Walmart to pick up a few items. What a shock. The place is so busy, loud and stressful compared to our quiet stay in Rocky Harbour. Thank God we are headed for Twillingate.. Again, one main street and a peaceful setting. As soon as we arrive, we see icebergs and a lot of ice in the harbour. Apparently, 2 days before, the boats could not even leave the harbour because of it. This had not been seen in over 100 years at this time of year. Everyone is relieved and happy to start the tours and to be able to fish.

For supper, what else: a 2 lb lobster. The dip for the bread is balsamic vinegar, olive oil and molasses. Yum! Desert? Sticky Caramel Pudding! (Anchor Inn Hotel)
The entertainment at the hotel’s pub is excellent. The guitarist,plays well into the night.

Weather is great …but we have not seen a moose yet!
