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.

You May Have to Look Closer

From the Sleepy Noggin location on the map, Mel's place is about the thickness of two toonies further NE along the black line.

Going further along the line and to the end, is French Beach. I'm not too sure how far along we hiked the red-dotted line, but most likely the length of it--it's not really a long meander, but truly a pleasant one.

Our sunset cruise followed the solid black line in the opposite direction, and to the lighthouse at Long Point, on the north-west tip.

And to round out the day, on our way back from the lighthouse, Sharon and I joined some locals at Sleepy Cove (see map), and enjoyed a sunset over an iceberg gathering.
