Mid-August, we were packed and departing for points East. Our 1994 Ford was loaded with camper, canoe, food and wine. Mae & Earl loaded up their VW Van, once again assuming it still had many more kilometres to go. We plan on about a 5 week trip. We decided to travel through the USA on the trip out and return home through Quebec. The trip resulted in more ferry crossings than we had done before, a visit to L'Anse aux Meadows ( the oldest known Viking settlement in NA), hiking trips into Gros Morne NP, a stop at Cape Spears (NA's most easterly point of land), one inland and one coastal boat tour, A Farley Mowat sighting during a ferry crossing and our most amazing wildlife sighting ever ... 30,000 nesting pairs of Northern Gannets at Cape St. Mary's ... and one Moose.
