The plan today was to take it relatively easy and pedal to a campground in Gambo about 65 kilometres away. Things did not go smoothly as we had to return to the campground and pickup my cell phone that I had forgotten. We did a little shopping as we were not sure what would be available in Gambo.
|Dominion stores are alive and well in Newfoundland but have |
disappeared on the Mainland.
|Silent Witness Memorial to American soldiers who died in an |
airplane crash in Gander in 1985
|The cross at the Silent Witness Memorial|
|Gander Lake again|
|One big hill near the end of Gander Lake. You can see right |
to the top
|We thought in the picture above that the top was the top. |
No it was not as we could not see the "Final Top"
|A nice descent towards "Square Pond"|
We stopped for lunch at the restaurant and we were told that once we reach the lookout, it is all downhill to Gambo. It took a while to reach the lookout. It is the first time we reach a lookout named after someone and there is a picture of that person. In this case, Joey R. Smallwood, the first Premier of the Province of Newfoundland and Father of Confederation. From the lookout, you can see Gambo, birth place of Mr Smallwood.
|Hard to miss this lookout|

Tonight we are staying in a campground in Gambo and are looking forward to another good night's sleep.
