Hogan under DC3 wing at Harbor Grace

Drove north to Bay de Verde, which is the closest point of North America to Europe. This resulted in a lot of the early attempts to fly non-stop from North America to Europe to start here. Amelia Earhart was one of them, although she may have just been a passenger on the flight, not the pilot. There was a working fish plant processing crab, and they had 2 boxes that had been cooked, but not yet flash frozen, so we bought some. Bought 4 pounds of lovely queen crab for c$4 per pound. Stopped at Harbor Grace, where we parked Hogan under a wing of a DC-3. Looked at several great old houses and a beautiful stone church. Drove to Green's Harbour, the Golden Arm RV Park to have crab for an appetizer and our "gifted" cod filet as main course. This cod was even better than the first we had in Port au Choix.
