Whitless Bay, Placentia, Cape St. Mary's

One more picture of our great boondocking spot at Elliston. All alone on the hill with 180 degree view of ocean. Whales everyday!

The wild flowers in Newfoundland were beautiful.

The Molly Brown boat ride near Whitless Bay. There were only two passengers and two crew. I went out (w/o Dean) and saw Gull Island. Tens of thousands of birds - puffins, murres, kittywakes. Cold foggy day, again!

We went into St. John's for one day. It was cold, rainy and foggy (like everyday in NL).

No these pictures are in focus! That is how foggy it was the day we were at Cape Spear. The shorter building with 3 windows is the old lighthouse and the tall one is the current lighthouse.

There were whales in sight at Cape Spear.

We did not go into St. John's and to Signal Hill because of the fog.

Placentia, NL is a beautiful town. You can see our rig in the lower left by the water.

We took a drive out to Cape St. Mary's to see the bird preserve. Huge population of Gannets. There was a baby with almost each adult.

The wing span of the Gannets is close to 6 feet.
We are now on the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia and guess what - it is raining!

Hi Dean & Judy, Great pictures today. Your Maritimes adventure has sure taken you to some beautiful sites. Looks like you're wearing jackets or coats a lot though. Hard to imagine that it has been such a cool summer for you guys and it has been so very hot and humid here in the midwest. We sure are looking forward to catching up with you this fall. Miss you two! Hugs, J&C

Hi, great pics. Thank you for sharing this wonderful adventure. You have a good eye for telling the story of your travels. Love the puffins. They have so much personality. Take good care of each other and see you in the fall. Hugs Dick and Beth
