Day 21, Bonavista, July 1st, Canada Day

Yes we did arrive at Arch and Marie's Bed and Breakfast in Bonavista later in the afternoon, and as your eyes wander southward during your reading of this passage, you'll notice our breakfast table the next morning has an unusual decorative touch to it, compared to the usual breakfast fair.

Sharon and I, Donna and Keith, divided into pairs again today, each choosing to seek out our own separate adventures.  We chose to make our first stop, actually our only stop, in Elliston, on the eastern shores of the peninsula, a leisurely one hours drive away. It was here that I was confronted by a stranger, Sharon and I witnessed an iceberg flipping over, and we had another refreshing suck from a growler.


Enjoy

While Sharon was chatting it up with a lady  tourist, a white Cadillac pulled up along side of me.  And as the passenger window rolled down, the driver leaned across the front seat.  

"Hello, how are you," the friendly voice asked.  

"Doing just fine thank you, how about you're self , " was my reply.

"I'm doing fine too."

"I hope you are not going to ask for directions," I continued, "I'm just a tourist...."

"Not at all."  "I had a feeling you were not from here and decided to stop and welcome you to Elliston."

Well our conversation continued on for a moment or two longer, and then the car pulled away.  But the thought of a stranger taking some time from his commute to stop and say hello still impresses me today.
