Day 17: St John's Day Off

We'll we've been tracking Hurrican Irene for a week now, and thought the best to bunker down as she passes over. Turns out, it is about 80F and sunny here today! Might be nicest day we've had yet...Oh well, had a nice walk down Water Street and maybe some raw fish for dinner.

Interesting pub:


Thank god no need to see this place from the inside..it does look a bit like Gotham though.

Day 18/19 Argentia Ferry Ride to Meat Cove

As we leave St John's I look out the window and see these two spying Dorito. This is photographic evidence that indeed Orange is the coolest color. (I refuse to document the other 1million times they might have been closer to the white bike)




We got to the ferry a bit early, and happen upon this fellow inmate. His name is Thomas and I believe his moniker is TDP (his initials). Had a fascinating lunch, some post dinner, bfast and lunch the next day with him. He left us in Meat Cove though..




Here's another smiling lurker inmate:


Anyhow, the ferry left Argentia on the mark, and arrived 14 hrs later across Cabot Straight with no drama. Honestly, we slept quite soundly.

Interesting Islands (3X taller than wide)


Buoy Repair Vessel (and some Buoys on dock)




Nothing like a 800 person, a few semi-trucks, 30 morotbikes and lots of cars ferry wake


The "he made bail and got off the rock (Newfoundland) alive smile":


Even the bike escapes the shackles




Cabot trail scenery hugging the coastline


Turn off Cabot trail to Meat Cove marked by red roof church:


Scenery into Meat Cove








Mr TicTac goes for a quick dip:


In Cod we trust


For those that haven't been to Meat Cove since 21 Aug 2010, they got hit by a huge storm and it ruined 2 of the 3 bridges, but the beach is now 2/3rds larger.

View from tent spot:


Beach:

For Comparison: Sept 2010:

Quick clip:


Campsites on hill:


The folks next to us have seen a seal and a pilot whale from their site (and some binoculars). We are tracking home right on schedule, and stay tuned for updates on Sushi Night Extraordinare!

Day 20: Meat Cove to New Brunswick

Well, the clicky finger on my lead photographer is all worn out. Alas, there was not too much good stuff to take a photo of as we were mostly slabbing it for home. The only notable was a 20-lb snapping turtle that was gingerly waddling across a 4-lane divided highway. I think he took his cues from Honey Badger!

We did realize that despite the camp fire and the mild winds the mosquitoes at Meat Cove were out in force last night. I guess they love the grain-fed, marble fatten, American flesh as we have a too many bites.

Next year for sure Bob. Right now the great debate is whether I bring M or not. I am going to go, I'd like to do it solo, but I don't want here to miss it since she may never get another chance.
