Aug 26, 2015 - more amazing scenery

Last few hours in gros morne park. Beautiful area for sure. Hikers paradise. We drove to the discovery center by the tablelands. Crazy change of landscape. Brown and barren looking.

Jul 19, 2015 - Gros Morne National Park

Besides the city of St. John’s, I had one more planned “destination” stop: Gros Morne National Park. It's a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) site. I always try to visit UNESCO sites whenever I can. Gros Morne is part of the Long Range Mountains, which, itself, is part of the Appalachian Mountain Range. I love the Appalachians, the oldest mountain range in the world. The geology of this park is incredible. In case you want your own park like this, the recipe to build one is fairly simple. Take some...

Jul 7, 2015 - Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland

One of the areas I was looking forward to visiting the most was Gros Morne National Park. A landscape formed 1000's of years ago as a result of continents colliding, the diverse geologic features and culturally rich area rank Gros Morne as a top visitor destination, as well as one of our earths most significant natural areas.

Jul 10, 2014 - Rocky Harbour Day 2

Another day at Rocky Harbour Last night’s musical event was fabulous. Anyone who ends up in Gros Morne National Park should not miss Anchors Aweigh in Rocky Harbour. Today we met up with Dean and Sandy, Newfoundlanders that also have a place on Windsong Way at TGO in Florida. We went out for lunch in Rocky Harbour, and then they took us for a tour of Norris Point, a quaint little fishing town that has a gorgeous bay. Daily whale watching tour boats leave from here. While we were on the dock enjoying the view, several whales appeared a short...

Jul 9, 2014 - Gros Morne/Norris Point KOA

What do expect in Newfoundland? Yesterday as we toured the area around Grand Codrey. We found a little fish processing plant. Norm headed in to see if he could buy some fresh fish. He came out with six live lobsters, and off we went back to our campground. Have I mentioned Norm loves to cook and has all the pots and burners necessary to cook just about anything? Back at the campsite Norm set out to cook an amazing lobster dinner. I've posted a few pictures of Norm cooking and preparing dinner. This morning we packed up and headed north into...

Jun 25, 2013 - Gros Morne National Park

Today is our half way mark through the caravan. Time is going by fast. This morning we took a boat tour around Bonne Bay in the Gros Morne National Park. It started raining at 7 AM at the campground but it stopped by the time of the boat trip at 10 AM and then it was a little overcast. We were told that it was perfect for picture taking because when it is sunny the reflection off the water makes it hard to get good pictures. As we entered the boat, the owner shook hands with everyone and asked where we were from. Before we started the boat...

Sep 30, 2012 - Day 77 - Gros Morne Park, NL

We started today with mundane routine of laundry. It is very nice to have campsites with a decent laundromat because the machine in the bus takes about 2.5 to 3 hours to do a small load. At the laundromat we have it all done in 1.5 hours. We purchased tickets for a boat tour on Western Brook Pond that was leaving the dock at 1 o'clock. We packed a lunch and headed out to the site. It is a 3 kilometer walk, on a boardwalk or gravel path, over the bog to get to the lake. On the way we saw a bull moose in the distance across the bog, he kept...

Sep 27, 2012 - Day 74 - to Gros Morne Park, NL

We left Country Inn RV Park in Gander at 9:30 AM. We found out this morning that someone had been looking for us yesterday morning. It must have been Roy and Inez Phillpot, Trina Shiner's parents. On Facebook the other night Trina told me that they were in the park same park as us before flying out to Fort Mac. We found their camper but they were not home when we checked, and we never saw them come back. They then checked for us the next morning after we had already left for Twillingate. Close but no cigar for that meeting. We travelled in...

Aug 14, 2012 - Port aux Basque to Gros Morne

Well, we made it past the "Wreckhouse" without getting blown off the road. Believe it or not after hearing the tales, I was actually worried about that. It was still a cloudy and misty rainy day, but not awful. We rode about 240 miles northeast up the Trans-Canada Hwy. through the towns of Cornerbrook and Deer Lake, then turned up Rt.430 which ultimately would take you to the ferry to Labrador and the place where the Vikings first landed in Newfoundland, L'Anse aux Meadows, but we aren't going up that far...it would take us a couple of...

Jul 24, 2012 - Rocky Harbour

We're back at the Gros Morne KOA. Coming down from St Anthony this morning, we saw a moose with her calf. Saw another moose near Eddie's Cove and managed to get a picture of that one. The winds were really strong today. It wasn't fun at times hanging onto the steering wheel. 352 kms for the day. We took Sophie out for a walk around the campground after supper. We passed a campsite that had an Airstream trailer sitting on it that looked familiar. As we got closer to our own site, who should we run across but Richard and Rosemary that we...

Jul 21, 2012 - Western Brook Pond

The Western Brook Pond is a fjord or lake located in Gros Morne National Park on the west coast. Apparently on Newfoundland, if a body of water is not a sea or ocean, it's a "pond". It is surrounded by steep rock walls 2,000 ft high having been carved from the surrounding plateau by glaciers. The 2 hour boat cruise came highly recommended was very enjoyable and relaxing. The temperature, even out on the water was comfortable.

2012 East Coast Trip

Jul 20, 2012 - Gros Morne National Park

Mid afternoon, pulled into Rocky Harbour KOA (which is just inside Gros Morne National Park) for a couple of days. 296 kms for the day. The drive up from Grand Codroy was interesting to say the least. The road runs up into some low mountains. Its a gentle slope, but it puts you into terrain that looks like peat bogs and spruce trees. We were told that its a good idea to make sure that we are fully gassed up before leaving Deer Lake, the stations are spread pretty far apart from then on. $217.00 for 166 litres @ 1.30 litre. Not too far north...
