We checked out the 3 km. hiking trail into the Pond where we were to catch the boat - and the winds almost blew us off the board walk and into the marsh. Next post will show dramatically different shots of the same area.
We were parked near Shallow Bay and started to enjoy a walk on a lovely sandy beach except for the wind - combined with the sand - was virtually sand blasting us. Don't need that so aborted that idea!
|All set up and enjoying the beach view - except for when the fringe effects of Hurricane Irene blew in 24 hrs. later! This was actually a B&B - with about 10 serviced RV sites - perfect and very inexpensive!|
|Part of the 3 km hiking trail into Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne Ntl. Park. This is a Ntl. Historic site - 'rare beauty' and 'outstanding examples representing major stages of earth's history!|
|More shots along the trail and boardwalk toward the "Pond" - on that very windy day. We were glad not to be on the boat this day!|
|Arches Provincial Park, Nfl - just one more beautiful spot!|
|One can appreciate the erosion effects of wind and water!|
|Beaches at Shallow Bay near Cow Head, Nfl.|
|We are standing on a wee levee that separated us from the effects these winds and waves in the adjoining cove - thank goodness! But we weathered it well! Buddy not so well - but he got over it!|
