Cow Head to Port aux Basques

On leaving Cow Head heading southwest to the ferry, we had extra time to explore more of Gros Morne. We have really enjoyed our stay in Newfoundland & these 2 additional side trips have made it even more difficult to leave. We spent the night at the Hotel Port aux Basques; nice room with a view & great to be close to the ferry.

We made it!

We survived our first day, ferry ride and all. The ferry was great, with only 58 people, we had no problem finding a seat! Turns out we were on the HAZMAT traverse. They only allowed 58 people on the ferry as there was fertilizer and LPG (propane) on board. Obviously we made it! We are staying in Port aux Basques for the night.

... have to arrive 2 hours earlier! We thought we'd rather see more of the sights than be on such a long ferry trip. I had to take gravol for the first crossing; but it's the Atlantic. Another reason we backed tracked was we missed a big highlight which was Grose Morne National Park. The park was definitely worth it. It's huge, we camped in the park for a couple nights. Drove most of it, and did this scenic, beautiful hike. I'll download photos...St John's was a ...

... falls today, the rain held off. We made our own campsite last night, so we are heading toward St John's but will get a campsite that has showers, laundry and a heated pool. NL has a good 2013 travel guide; which is necessary because Rogers does not work in this region we've been told. However we did download maps, into our apps before our trip. It's interesting how quickly the season has come to an end here. In one regard, it's a nice and quiet time ...

... and scatty and make a funny but very loud noise that sounds like a bird. We could have watched them for hours.

One more memorable thing about NL for us was some of the names of local towns. Here are just a few of the names we found funny:

Jigging Cove
Placenta
Conception Bay
Petty Harbour
Shoe Cove
Tickle Harbour
Come by chance
Random Heights
Bunyan Cove
Happy Adventure
Rodney Pond
Noggin Cove

    It is a few minutes to the ferry, but don't count on speed in the dining room. They would benefit from a manager who could train the waitresses on efficient service. You wait for a menu, you wait for a drink (even water) and, boy, you wait for your food. Oh, yes, and you wait for your bill.
    It wasn't so busy for dinner, but the waitress couldn't seem to deal with remembering orders or what was in the food. Does not give you confidence in the chef if the servers have never sampled items, or even seem interested.
    Breakfast of toast and coffee would be faster, I hoped. Hah. Not a chance. Good thing I'd packed for the ferry already.
