Today started cloudy again, but cleared up and warmed up as the day went on. It was too windy for boat rides, but just fine for touring around. It was already 18C at 6am, reaching 27C today, and sunny.
We took a pretty back-road way into Twillingate, one of the nicer drives we've taken in this area, right along the coast
We stopped at Skipper Jim's, and we had a nice chat. Skipper Jim said it wouldn't be pleasant touring today, too windy. Cod season didn't open for a couple of weeks yet, so no legal cod fishing anyway:
Heading further north, we continued the scenic drive to Long Point Lighthouse. Lots of hiking trails there with water views, but we didn't see any whales or icebergs today.
Back at Twillingate we stopped at the J&R restaurant for their World Famous fish & chips. Quite good, but we've had better (think PEI North Shore). On the way out of town we did find a really good fish market, where we bought some cod for our supper. They would also cook lobsters for us, just a $1 premium per lobster for that service. We'd have certainly done that if we were staying longer.
Next stop was the Auk winery, where they make a variety of fruit wines, including rhubarb. Cathie really enjoyed the tastings so we bought a few bottles to bring home. The wine didn't travel very well unfortunately.
Back at our camp we ordered a bag of firewood, delivered to our site, and invited our next-site neighbours over for a fire later on. The neighbours are from Baden, not far from Kitchener Ont where we used to live, and had set out to head east the same day we did. They had been to a lot of the same places we have, and had noticed our almost-unique trailer at other camps.
We enjoyed Twillingate and area much more in the sunshine. There are lots of little coves and villages to see in the area.
