I have got to post more often as I am already forgetting where some of the pictures where taken. Some of the coves and fishing villages look so similar. Sorry, I will try to do a better job.
On my third day in St. Anthony, I went to Wild Bight, Newfoundland and visited the Cape Norman Lighthouse area. I liked it so much, I ended up going back a couple of times. There were a few icebergs off in a distance, but the scenery was great. My first trip I saw a strange looking animal there.
I thought it looked like a fox, but I wasn’t sure. I later found out that it is an Artic Fox who is molting. I had read that there were several similarities between the artic and here, but I thought it was mainly plants! I was excited to see him and actually ended up seeing 3 (on 2 different days). They like the limestone barren rocks. Below is the same fox.
The Barren Willow only grows in the Wild Bight area in the limestone barrens, nowhere else in the world! I think I found some. Below are a couple of shots of this interesting plant.
I had a great time examining all the small and different plants that grow in the limestone.
In my travels in Newfoundland, I have noticed a sign a few times I wanted a picture of.
I had heard the roads were rough, but in some places they are terrible. My poor RV and Car are taking a beating!
I have seen many moose and caribou. Below is a caribou feeding beside the road.
My Cheat Sheet --
Thrombolites – some of our most primitive life forms. Read the information sign if interested in it’s geology. They actually looked like they were made of concrete. These are in Flower Cove, NL. The only other place in the world where they are found is in Australia.
Before I finish this post up, I wanted to answer some questions that Sherry asked. So far I have stayed at private parks while in Newfoundland and I do have reservations at most places. I originally intended on staying at provincial and national parks, but changed my mind after doing some research. Mainly because I like my amenities!! A lot of people travel here without reservations, and during June I don’t think it would be a problem. In July and August, I think you might need reservations at least in the popular places. I like the freedom of not having reservations, but quite often I just like knowing where I will be and not having to worry if a campground is full. I do have a few days (such as today) where I don’t have reservations, but have an idea where I will stay and those places are more of stop overs and not really destinations.
So far the weather has been cold. I have worn more long pants this year than I think the entire time I have been full-timing! But I knew this and came prepared!.
Speaking of the time I have been full-timing, I just passed my 6 year anniversary of living in my RV. Time flies when you are having fun!!!!!
