Day 89: Gros Morne to Port-Aux-Basques

Location: Port-Aux-Basques, NL
Date: Tues, July 22nd

I awoke to an amazing breakfast cooked up by my aunt & uncle. Nothing beats starting the day with a meal like this!


We took a drive to Norris Point. The drive provided a view of Gros Morne Mountain!


The lookout on the way, provided a view of Norris Point and the Tablelands. The Tablelands is a large area where part of the earth's underlying mantle — an ancient ocean — was pushed up to the surface when two tectonic plates collided (about 470 million years ago). The Tablelands is the most important geological feature in Gros Morne Park, and the main reason for the park being declared a World Heritage Site.



The Norris Point Waterfront provided a number of photo opportunities, and had lots of beached jellyfish!




I headed back to the campground and spent a couple hours updating my blog, and then departed for Port-Aux-Basques. It clouded over for the drive out of Gros Morne National Park, but I still took pictures.


I stopped at Corner Brook to check out the city. It will be host to the 2009 East Coast Music Awards. It doesn't have an airport, so I'm still not certain how I'll be getting there yet...


The weather was cloudy, but nice, until about 90 kms from Port-Aux-Basques. Then it got rainy and foggy.


It was dark when I arrived in Port-Aux-Basques. I took a drive through the downtown, and parked at the Visitor's Centre where I slept in my van.

This is now my model for breakfast tomorrow morning. I don't think I can touch it.
