We took the Marine Atlantic Ferry to Port aux Basque, Newfoundland on Saturday morning. It was an uneventful crossing as the weather was pleasant and the waves were small. Our dog Woolly Bear had to stay in the camper below deck for the entire 6 hour crossing. He was asleep when we got back to the rv to disembark.

After a quick stop at the visitor center, we camped at JT Cheesman Provincial Park. The park was quite nice and had a beach and sand dunes. I have pictures, but will need better Internet service to upload them! The beach and dunes are a nesting site for the Piping Plover, so we had to be careful to keep WB away from the sea grass.

The last two days we have camped at Trout River Campground in Gros Morne National Park. It was a large, wooded site with lots of privacy but no electricity. Yesterday saw heavy rain, but we hiked the Tablelands any way. It was the first time since August 1st that Charlie was able to do any hiking. His ankle held up for the short 4K hike in the rain.

Today we are moving to Shallow Bay campground on the other side of Gros Morne. With a bit of luck, I should be able to upload the pictures of the provincial park and the Tablelands.
