Everything is going great on our cross-island trip. The rental car is quite comfortable so we are getting from A to B in complete relaxation every day.
On the first 4 days we saw most of the Bonavista Peninsula, of which the filmset for Random Passage was a definite highlight. Kudos to Fred for the lovely guided tour there!
Here’s the Bonavista lighthouse:
One of the other highlights was hiking the Skerwink Trail:

Gros Morne NP
Right now we’re on our third day in Gros Morne and it’s beautiful here. Yesterday we took a 2 hour boat tour on Western Brook Pond, mom nearly froze solid. Today we saw the Tablelands on a short 4 km trail. So far, with all hikes combined, we have walked about 20 kilometres on the trails since we left. 🙂
The landscape is very diverse with some places resembling the fjords of Norway and other placing looking like the Karoo plateau in South Africa.
Like I said, it’s a beautiful area. At this time we still haven’t seen any moose though, and frankly I’m beginning to doubt if they exist at all. At this point I would be less surprised to see a unicorn stray into the headlights of our rental car. 😉
As you can see I’ve added some photos to this post now that I’m back home. Another newsflash to share with you: the creature of myth does exist! We have seen 3 moose in Gros Morne the day after I first posted this!
