quick Lunch time update - not many pictures from today.

Day 9 Norris point to Terra Nova park

Wet and cold ride. Woke up earlier but didn't leave til 7. Drizzled most of the day. Missed the Tim Hortons at deer lake so kept rolling till my feet got cold and went to Springdale?. Warmed up then off again. More drizzle nothing heavy but still cold. Had the gerbing cranked up the entire trip.

Stopped in gander at the air museum and found a grocery store. Air museum was smAll but interesting. Important base in WWII and used for Cuba and Russia to fly back and forth. Pictures of Casto sledding. Wouldn't see that in the USA.

Gander COOP. Pretty decent selection of food. Got a couple apples for the road.


Made it to terra by 230. Grabbed a sight next to the shelter just in case and got set up thought the rain was going to catch up but never did. Made supper watched the squirrels run around. The little bastards are pretty brazen. They would chase each other around the tent, bike and almost up my pant leg.

Terra Nova has the nicest bathrooms. I almost set up camp in here.

A nice walk by the stream. Bugs weren't out yet either.


Was good to slow down and actually be warm. I actually was able to wear shorts for the first time in a week.

Caught up on some email.


tomorrow - B-36 crash site and St Johns!
