Wow! What a ferry trip. We arrived at the terminal a couple hours early like they say to for a 3pm departure time,but the loading is delayed and we finally get on the boat about 4:30pm. It’s suppose to be a 5 hour crossing to Port Aux Basque, Newfoundland.but the seas start getting rough and the winds howl 90 km/hr, so we can’t dock until 2 am, arrrrghhhh! The doggies had to stay in the RV the whole time, but seemed to survive OK. Decided to overnight in the visitors center rather than driving as moose out number people on the rock.
Next day we drove up to Rocky Harbour, a little village tucked in close to Grose Morne National Park. The park is fantastically beautiful, rugged and untamed. The star attraction is a boat tour up a flooded valley called Western_Brook_Pond. You have to hike 3 km through marshland to a dock at one end of the lake and the boat tours you by huge granite cliffs in narrow canyons with waterfalls here and there, fantastic.
Wanting to get a little closer to the coast, we found a national park site at Green Point and being September the place is deserted. Yay, for us, we snagged a site perched right over the ocean with a view of Green Point and a little fish staging area. I think we will spend a few days here and then maybe go look for icebergs.
