This morning we hit the road for points south of Corner Brook in the Bay of Islands. We drove through Benoit's Cove, Frenchman's Cove, Halfway Point, York Harbour and finally Lark Harbour and Bottle Cove.
The first place we stopped was the beach and lagoon at York Harbour where we found this Greater Black Backed Gull sunning itself on a lagoon information sign.
It was a beautiful location and we managed to spot these Greater Yellow Legs in the lagoon.
Deborah's dog Tucker LOVES the water and wasted no time diving in for a stroll.
When he finally emerged he opted for the opposite bank from Deborah of course.
Dories hauled up out of the water.
Further down the road we stopped in Lark Harbour for a bite of lunch at Marlaine's Tidewatcher Cafe. The view was amazing. Obviously I couldn't stop talking about the scenery long enough for Deb to take my picture with my mouth shut .............
These ladies from Corner Brook were enjoying themselves as much as we were. They'd been hiking and had stopped for a chowder lunch.
We didn't go to church today but we did pass a few. This is Saint Ambrose in Halfway Point.
Stay tuned over the next two weeks for more tales from the island.
