DAY 19, Twillingate - randyhenderson

Day 19, Part Two, Twillingate Newfoundland

After our visit with Mel the fish tale fisherman, Sharon and I re-united with Donna and Keith, and together we drove out to French Beach, just up the road from our bed and breakfast, the Sleepy Noggin.  

For our evening's entertainment the four of us took in a beautiful sunset from the lighthouse at Long Point, overlooking Notre Dame Bay.  Then Sharon and I joined a gathering of locals in Sleepy Cove as we watched the golden hour light up the most impressive cluster of icebergs I will see during my Newfie stay.  That was really something.

Following our visit with Mel, Sharon and I were re-united with Donna and Keith, and together we drove out to French Beach for a different point of view. 

The parking area for the beach was not attainable without a little bit of stress.  Negotiating around, through, and over some serious-looking potholes caused us to second guess ourselves.  "Not recommended for vehicle traffic", was the warning on the sign back there.  But we made it through. 

The footing was very soggy to say the least.  There was not a dry step for the first one hundred metres of this open meadow.
