I just wanted to let you know everything is going great on our cross island trip. The big car is very comfortable so we are getting from A to B in total relaxation every day. On the first 4 days we have seen most of the Bonavista Peninsula, of which the filmset for Random Passage was the highlight. Kudos to Fred for the lovely guided tour there!

Today is our third day in Gros Morne and it’s very nice 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.

We still haven’t seen any moose 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.

UPDATE

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!
