We left the Trout River side of Gros Morne and moved north to Shallow Bay. Route 430 ran through many scenic fishing towns and by lots beautiful coastline. The campground itself is the furthest point north on the Viking Trail that one can go while remaining in Gros Morne Park.
The campground of Shallow Bay has a off white sandy beach with miles of coast and very few people. Woolly Bear and I walked the beach early each morning and never had any company. It was pristine, no evidence of people nearby. We are camping here for several days and are not sure where we will travel next.Originally we had planned to drive to the North Peninsula and visit the Viking ruins, but as the vastness of Newfoundland hit us, we realized that our eleven days here would be better spent getting to know the West Coast and Gros Morne more thoroughly. Any of you planning a Newfoundland trip should think of spending three or four weeks here, maybe more. The whales and icebergs are best seen in June or early July, so we have timed our trip poorly. Will just have to return with Newfoundland as the main attraction!
