DAYS 15-16, Our First Iceberg Sighting

We were celebrated with light rain and very gusty winds during our departure of Cow Head this Wednesday, June, 25th. Following the shoreline along Route 430 our destination today is Gunners Cove for our next two nights sleep-over.  

Forty-five minutes up the road and our first pull off is at Arches Provincial Park, which will be a brief stay due to the weather.  But all is not doom-and-gloom, interesting things are to be discovered further up the road, and the weather is going to clear as well, which makes for excellent iceberg viewing.

Just do to the nature of following the coast line, there are loads of opportunities to stop, step out of our vehicles, and go on mini explorations.  And it wasn't until nine hours out of Cow Head did we pull into Hillsview B&B in Gunners Cove.

Tomorrow we visit L' Anse aux Meadows, which has been designated as a UNESCO site, and is "thus unique evidence of the earliest known European presence on the American continent."

The next morning we left Cow Head and Gros Morne National Park in a driving rain, with our first planned stop at Arches Provincial Park, a mere three quarters of an hours drive up Route 430.
