Day 87: St. John's to Grand Falls - Windsor
Location: Windsor - Grand Falls, NL
Date: Sunday, July 20th
Before leaving St. John's, I took another trip up to Signal Hill, where the sky was clear and the fog was a ways on out. I took more pics:
I headed west, but took a detour toward Dildo, NL.
Interestingly, Dildo resides on Broad Cove.
I learned about the founder of Dildo, Captain Dildo.
Dildo is a cute little town complete with an interpretive centre and local "Dildo Days".
There have been tons of dragonflies all over... while approaching Dildo, I managed to capture one on camera.
In Ottawa, I have a bunch of Newfie friends, so interesting Newfoundland town/village names get thrown around lots. "Come By Chance" is one of those towns, so I stopped for a picture!
I continued onward to Terra Nova National Park. I stopped at the Visitor Centre and enjoyed beautiful weather. I checked out their interpretive centre with touch water creature tank, and wandered the shoreline.
I continued driving on the highway. There wasn't much to see except lots of people fishing and a nice sunset!
I finally settled on Windsor - Grand Falls as my place to sleep. I parked my van behind the visitor centre and went to sleep.
