“Westward, Ho!” is sorta silly since we were already as East as you can get! After Igor, our attempts to go around the roadblocks were futile – but we found some beautiful areas. Canning’s Cove on the lower Bonavista peninsula was serene. Black, fractured rock lined the cove.
They opened the road on Thursday so we changed our ferry reservation back to the western port and travelled leisurly, stopping to see Rattling Falls and Angelica – Rattling Falls is over 8oo feet high> We were alone at the lovely park ( with lots of stairs) Angelica was a humpback whale that drowned in fishing nets and came to the beach in King’s Point on the Baie Verte Peninsula. The local people raised enough money to build a beautiful Whale Discovery Center where her skeleton has been preserved. Reaching the west coast we found Hidden Falls on the Port au Port Peninsula. There, the rocks were all water worn and rounded. Later, Ray napped while I walked the beach at a bird sanctuary on Larkin Point.
On Saturday we came to Port aux Basques and enjoyed our last Newfoundland seafood in the tiny town of Margaree.
