The much improved weather continued this morning with blue skies and sunshine. We left Trinity and headed south to once again hook up with the TransCanada highway to continue our exploration of Newfoundland on the Avalon Peninsula. The Avalon is the most populated area of the island and the most visited.

Our first stop once we reached the Avalon was a little harbour town call Brigus. This is a very charming little town but definately becoming upscale with the saltbox houses oversadowed by new cottages & homes while the fishing boats in the harbour have been replaced with sailboats and yachts. The popularity of this village is not surprising as it is simply picture perfect from any angle.

This was the labour day holiday monday and a georgious day so there were plenty of people in the area. We walked the waterfront area and toured the town but found the crowd a little heavy after spent so much time in the little towns of the west coast. From Brigus we followed the coastline south to the bottom of Conception Bay ending the day in Holyrood, another nice little port town.

We found a little place offering "housekeeping rooms" at a reasonable price and decided to give it a try. The office was in the back of a little house and we were unsure what we were getting into. When the fellow led us down a hill behind the house we arrived at what looked like two fairly large, modern apartment buildings. The "room" was a fully furnished apartment with every conceivable appliance and convienience. It looked like it was all brand new.

The weather was great all day, we really enjoyed the sights and the acommodation was about as good as it gets. What more could you ask for.
