... short 1/2 hour later we arrived back at our hotel, which, not being air-conditioned, was quite warm. We decided to go for a drive to Conception Bay South (locally called C.B.S) an amalgamated town encompassing the communities of Topsail, Chamberlains, Manuels, Long Pond, Foxtrap, Kelligrews, Upper Gullies, Lawrence Pond and Seal Cove.

I like to stop and soak it all in before I move on. I followed the Trans Canada Highway to junction 50, it's the last junction before it winds down town to the unofficial 'Mile 0'. I wanted to get on the Atlantic coast and follow it North toward Cape St Francis at the entrance ...
