Sep 7, 2017 - Trinity and area

A different start to the day...we found a fabric store off Route 230 and I found unique material...it has puffins on it! The owner, Linda, told me that she and her cousin, who owns a shop in Grand Fall-Windsor ordered the material from China. I just had to have some. Mel was reading his book in the truck and it was taking me so long that he had to come in and found out why. Linda and I were having a great time chatting.𯘀 Finally we got on our way to Trinity where we bought tickets to tour several historic sites. Trinity has restored many...

Maritime's 2017

Sep 7, 2010 - Tuesday Charleston, NL

We made the drive up the Bonavista Peninsula – advertised as “Where it all began”. Our first stop was Elliston – “The Root Cellar Capital of the World”. The cellars were built between 1839 and the 1930’s with the oldest root cellar still in use today. That wasn’t why we stopped. There is an island a stone’s throw from the mainland that has 400 nesting pairs of Puffins – the cute little sea bird with an orange beak. Well more bad timing for us. The puffins have flown the nest. The child rearing was completed and the puffins have flown out to...

The Trip of 2010

Sep 6, 2010 - Monday Charleston, NL

The drive from Argentia was pleasant with a smooth road all the way to the Trans Canada Highway. The TCH was extremely busy with the Labor Day Weekenders returning home. Most of the traffic was heading in the other direction (towards St John’s where most of Newfoundlanders reside). We stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. Barb had already confirmed a reservation at our first choice RV park on the Bonavista Peninsula, so we had no worries on having a place to stay. We left the TCH and took a minor road onto the Bonavista Peninsula...

The Trip of 2010

Aug 11, 2010 - Bonavista Peninsula and Trinity Bay

Bonavista Peninsula to Trinity On Saturday we left Twillingate heading for the Bonavista Peninsula. We had been told by many people, and I had read in the tour books this was a ‘do not miss area.’ We had 8 days before our ferry leaves so we set out for more adventures. Unfortunately, I had suggested to Jim that we drive the coastal road from Twillingate rather than going to Gander and the TCH-1. The road we took was under construction about 40 percent of the way, what wasn’t under construction also needed to be, and it didn’t hug the...

Sep 12, 2008 - Day 153 Trinity NL

Day 153 Friday 12th September Trinity NL Another day of beautiful sunshine; near the park there was the Fluvarian that Denise wanted to visit. You know the name should have told us something right then and there; I hear you, what the hell is Fluvarian – well it was building you went down 3 levels to see fish swimming past in the river – they had glass viewing sections underneath the river – sounds good, well I guess the idea sounds good, that didn’t quite make the grade. Hmmm, moving right along!!! We drove into St John’s, only about 5-6kms...

Aug 31, 2008 - Rising Tide in Trinity

A Tale of Two Operas - Sunday, August 31 First the soap opera: Yesterday the day was slightly marred by the discovery that we had a low tire, in the worst possible place at the worst possible time. An inside dual that should have had 80psi was registering 45 and we were 55 miles from the nearest tire shop in Clarenville. To make matters worse, it was Saturday of Labor Day weekend and everyone was sure to be closed. (Newfoundlanders take their time off very seriously, as do all Canadians.) There was nothing to be done but to drive slowly to...

2008 Keys 2 Canada

Aug 28, 2008 - La Manche Hike then to Trinity

This morning, we hiked a section of the East Coast Trail to the abandoned fishing village of La Manche. It was abandoned after a fierce storm in 1966 drove huge waves up the inlet and destroyed the homes and suspension bridge. The bridge has been rebuilt as part of the East Coast Trail which connects the towns along the shore, but the village itself was abandoned. It took us a little over one hour to hike the trail through the forest and down to the village. There were beautiful waterfalls beside the village and the new suspension bridge is...

This evening we are all gathering at Chuck and Ecko's for desert Delicious...

Aug 31, 2007 - Twillingate to Trinity, Newfoundland

Perhaps I should just use cut and paste for the opening line hear each day; "We awoke to overcast skies and the threat of rain." The added feature today was the cool (cold) tempurature, about 13C. In addition to our rain gear we donned our long johns. I checked the calander to make sure we hadn't overslept by a month or so. This is still August issn't it? It is a shame the weather is so poor because Twillingate is a beautiful area that would offer stunning photo's with a little sunlight. We took a brief tour of the the east side of...
