|A rain soaked picture with a spectacular view|
Friday, June 20, 2014
An early start the next morning required the necessity for some coffee and the Canada famous Tim Hortons was closeby. The plan was for the day to visit Gros Morne National Park about an hour drive away from Corner Brook. Albeit the rainy weather Connor, Dylan, and ourselves made a trek up to one of the peaks in the park enjoying spectacular views of the bay and distinct snow covered peaks in the distance. The weather had put most visitors off climbing the boardwalk trail meaning the isolation made the views even more memorable. We then descended and looked around the Park's discovery center as well as drying off, and proceeded to reach our next stop for the night Rocky Harbor right on the coast. Because of the small towns tie to the ocean it was fitting that one of us try a hard shell lobster for dinner while the other proceed to have a Newfoundland special dish of moose stew. A very memorable dining experience for multiple reasons. The evening was ended with a long stay in the hot tub at the hotel as well as enjoying the daylight and eventual sunset at ten in the evening.
