Trip report (lots of photos)

I spend two glorious weeks in Newfoundland in July and am currently working on a trip report (it also covers additional 10 days spend getting there and back home).

So far I am on day 3 of the Newfoundland portion, and for anyone interested in some Newfie photos please, follow along! I hope it gives a small tasting to those planning their first trip, and brings back memories to those who have visited it already.

Day 1 - arrival in Port Aux Basques, a misty first day in Newfoundland

Day 2 - hiking the Lookout Trail and other tidbits

Day 3 - riding around and touring Western Brook Pond

For those interested in more photos from the trip, the portion preceding Newfoundland, you can also check out Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia here: …friskyfreeze.com/tag/…

More to come: going up to St. Anthony, T'Railway, Bonavista, St John's, Avalon, and back through New Hempshire's White Mountain National Forest and New York's Lake Placid!

Oh yes, there were waffles, and many other things. One thing I like about B&B's is that they often try to impress you with breakfast :)

BlueSky, I am SO darned impressed! Your photos are simply amazing! (my pics of my trip a few years ago just do not compare) just the pictures still in my heart. You must have a very fine camera and you also have a very good eye with textures, colors and angles. Very well done!!! I SO need to go back. sigh

It's been a while and my report is finally complete. The last entry I posted here was ending in Clarenville, the next one up is exploring a little bit of Bonavista:

…friskyfreeze.com/2013/…

After that, we're off to a multi-day stay in St. John's, for a bit of city roaming:

Whale watching:

General riding around:

And heading back, towards Grand Falls-Windsor:

After which we have our last day in Newfoundland, cross back to mainland, and enter the United States:

The last two have no Newfoundland, but I will include them for completeness. The penultimate day was highlighted by a ride up to Mt. Washington, NH:

And the last one was at Lake Placid / Whiteface mountain:

I hope you enjoy following along!

I loved your report about the Bonavista Peninsula. Having lived in Elliston for 3 years, and currently having a summer home in Newmans Cove, it was lovely to see some views of the area through someone else`s eyes. And gorgeous pictures of the puffins! Great to see you made it to the Patterson`s Bonavista Social Club in Upper Amherst Cove. That area of the coast is certainly scenic.
