There are few campgrounds in the area we are in and the one campground was way to close to Charlottetown. We looked at motels located down the road but both had no vacancy. We used Google map to find a gas station located near a tourist information office near a place called Goobies (79 kilometres away). It was gonna be 'wild-camping' at the Irving gas station.

|The mandatory river picture. This is the Northwest River near the Twin |
River Golf Course on the southern edge of Terra Nova Park
|Looking back towards Clarenville and the Northwest Arm|
|With all those hills, Hélène was looking to trade her bicycle for |
a RAM 5.7 litre big truck. Unfortunately, it does not come with a small ladder
With all the talk we heard about the huge hills, you would think that someone would have mentioned the hill coming out of Clarenville. That bloody hill went on for almost seven kilometres before we finally started descending on the other side. Not a steep hill but a very long one!
|At least there was scenery to look at on the ascent from Clarenville.|
|Sailboat in the Northwest Arm, heading towards Lady Cove and possibly the ocean|
We think this fella could be a 'Yellow-legged Gull'
Hélène spotted a Newfoundland licence plate and the intent was to keep it as a replacement for the Alberta plate we had found and then lost somewhere in Northern Ontario. The plate is attached to a 1/4 inch metal plate, weighs a ton, and would have taken a while to separate the licence plate from the metal plate.
|We will have to make due with a picture of the plate. Hélène's |
bicycle having a break.
