For three days we stayed at the Crocker Cabins in Trout River where we met Suzanne and Jeff from Vancouver. The cabins were very nice with great cable TV. I love to watch TV with mom!
Trout River is located within Gros Morne National Park on the west coast of Newfoundland. Here I am at Trout River Pond:
Gros Morne park is a UNESCO world heritage site. We learned that the earth’s mantle is exposed here and that makes this a very special spot. The mountains here are called the Tablelands because they are flat on top.
Here I am at Woody Point on Bonne Bay.
We stopped at the Seaside Restaurant because it has one of the area's few wifi cafés! And they have good milkshakes here too. Everything here smells really good!
Tonight we had local cod sandwiches from the Tablelands Restaurant in Trout River. Daddy took lots of pictures of the cute fishing port in Trout River.
Here I am on the boardwalk by the ocean in downtown Trout River. The sunsets here are gorgeous.
I'm having the best time ever!!! But mom still hasn’t found labradorite in its natural state :) I found lots of yummy moose poop deposits though...
We heard there are good deposits of high grade labradorite over on the Labrador coast near Nain, but we can’t get there. Over there native artisans carve stone statuary from locally gathered rock materials like anorthocite that they gather near Nain too. Mom wants to fly to Nain right now... but dad says that will have to be another trip.
Tomorrow we’re heading back around Bonne Bay to resume our northward Viking Trail explorations. It should be fun!
