What a day we’ve had – full of adventures, intriguing stops and fun times with our crew!
First stop and full disclosure… John’s evening expedition of Moose Spotting paid dividends this morning as we took a trip down to the Port aux Choix Lighthouse where he saw a small herd of caribou (see photos from Day Eight!). We took photos at the lighthouse then, believing the caribou had moved on (they had!), the group was so excited to see a bull moose!!
Then we visited Port au Choix historic site and learned about the nearly 6000 year history of human life in the area. Truly amazing!
Moving south through Gros Morne Provincial Park, we made a couple of photo stops to remember the gorgeous island.
After a lovely lunch in Rocky Harbour, we headed east at Deer Lake and made our way to King’s Point. The pottery of King’s Point was unique and the shop had so many tempting pieces of art from over 300 artists.
The Whale Pavilion was a highlight of the day as well where we had the singular opportunity to see a fully restored humpback whale skeleton.
Our overnight at Mt. Peyton featured Ed Power and Weldon giving us a traditional Newfoundland “Screech-In”. We were all treated to Ed’s voice and guitar while Weldon cracked a few jokes and played the accordion!
