Before leaving Gros Morne Park, we went to the Aquarium in Norris Point, where they had some interesting lobsters. We saw a blue one, a half orange and dark one (like it was dropped in hot water and then pulled out but still alive) and one that is half male and half female (very aggressive always fighting with itself; just kidding).
Back on the road, we travelled north on Hwy 430, stopped to take photos of The Arches Provincial Park.
Stuart just had to climb up on top of it.
Once we got to Port aux Choix we parked at the great but spartan RV park right on the beach.
At the Port au Choix National Historic Site Visitor Centre on the Viking Trail we picked up brochures and valuable information about trails. There was a lighthouse on the point so off we went.
Looking back at the RV. It’s pretty barren.
There was lots of sunlight left so we hiked the Crow Head to Dorset Burial cave (3 kms). One moment you are walking across a huge expanse for barren rock.
Then you come to a low spot that is dense with greenery and it feels spooky with the mossy boulders and crevices to crawl into and through.
Dinner was at the Anchor Cafe in town where we sample another great seafood chowder ($8) and a Fisherman’s Platter ($24) which was an assortment of shrimp, cod, salmon minus cod tongue and scallops (none left).
Back to the RV for a nice sunset.
