Day 8 - Exploring Twillingate

We have a full day planned today! Leaving out from the North 99 Motel this morning...





...we are going to see as much as we can of what is on this map.







Traveling south on the 340. Our motel is between Paradise and Back Harbour...





...Twillingate has been the focal point in this trip's planning...







...and it is More than we expected...






...as we ride thru town, there is something magical about this place...






...we are across the harbor from the motel now...







...headed up toward Jenkins Cove.







I don't want to say it is otherworldly...but, there is a sense of being "back in time"...the hustle & bustle, and the craziness of the world in general...does not seem to matter here.







A look back at Twillingate.

 

 

Riding around the top of Jenkins Cove...







...pulled over for a photo of Mary on the TG.







What a beautiful place!







Another look back at Twillingate from Jenkins Cove.







...after reaching Durrell, we turn around...







...we want to go to the Long Point Lighthouse, which is north of Crow Head.







Riding all the way thru Twillingate & North Twillingate, we pass our motel...






...on the way to Crow Head...







...the sights are seemingly endless...







...WOW! It does not feel like 2019 up here!

 

 

Welcome!







We ride straight thru town to...







...Lighthouse Road...







...it does not show on the map I posted...







...but if you google map Long Point Lighthouse Newfoundland, you can see this little road, past Crow Head.







We're here...

 

Standing at the top of the cliffs...








...near the lighthouse...








...the fog is rolling in, and that horn is LOUD every couple of minutes!








That's a long ways down!








We talk about walking down to those trails...which would be fun, til we had to walk back up! We're not feeling that energetic. lol







We did walk up Past the Lighthouse and explore some of the trails up here.

 

 

After leaving the lighthouse...








...we meandered a bit...







...thru the little village of Crow Head...








...wondering to each other...









...what it would be like to live...








...in such an isolated and scenic place.









Of course, the issue of it being so cold, so much of the year, always puts a stop to any real consideration. lol








Ok! Time to head to Twillingate for a ride!









Mary's pretty stoked. We know it's too late to see any icebergs, but the chance are high on seeing some whales!







We're loaded up, rain jackets on, waiting for everyone else to board.

 

 

We have a ton...






...of photos...







as the Captain...






...wandered around...







...for almost 3 hours...







...yeah, that is a little fishing boat, pretty far out to sea...







...looking for whales.







We did not see any, but we did have a nice time.







Saw some amazing views...







...before heading back into Twillingate.

 

 

It has been a full day, but we're not done.

We head over to the Wooden Boat Builder Museum...







...where they still build...






...a couple of boats a year. We talked with the gentleman building this boat. Incredible history in this place, and learned a bit about boat-building too.






After a couple of hours here, we head 150 yards back to the motel...







...get cleaned up and ride over to Annie's Harbour Restaurant...






...where we enjoyed a good meal and view of the Harbour.





Tomorrow we ride to Rocky Harbor!

 

Next Day HERE
