It was a rainy Saturday here but my daughter's home for the weekend so even though it was a good art day, I spent time with her instead. Since I have a lot of photos from my trip to Newfoundland a month ago (wow-it's been a month), I thought I would share a few.
Today's photos are from a freshwater fjord (not really a fjord since real fjords are where mountains meet salt water but for lack of knowing a better name I will still call it that) called Western Brook Pond. It is in Gros Morne National Park, a gorgeous park the very end of the Appalachian mountain chain.
It was a 3 kilometer walk in along a road (shown in the upper photo) through the peat bogs to get to where the boat tour docked. You can just see the mountains peeking out along the horizon. There is no transport for passengers in or out to the docks for the boat trip, but they must use this road to bring supplies like gas in for the boat.
This next photo is the view of Western Brook Pond near the end of the road. The house roof you see is where you confirm your ticket , use the toilets, or buy a snack.

And this is the boat we took our tour of the fjord on. I took this photo when the boat came in from the tour before ours.
The views of and in the fjord were amazing.
Sometimes you had to look up to get the best views.
It was a wonderful 2 hour boat trip, worth the 3 kilometer walk in and then the 3 km walk out. (Not that 3 km is all that far.)
More photos from Gros Morne National Park another day.
Hope you enjoyed my photos today and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
