Decided we wanted to get to Bonavista without delay and do some exploring. Stopped at Trinity, where we had such an amazing 5 days in 2005 thanks to Peter Henrico's generosity in donating an Oceanex return trip to Montreal to St John's, which we "won" at thru Royal Vic Ball. Trinity has grown so much in the past 18 years; hard to recognize it. It still is the prettiest town on the Bonavista Peninsula. Now designated a historic site so tightly controlled. We had great memories of our time there and seeing the Inn, we had stayed at.
Quick lunch and off to Bonavista to check in to our Airbnb. Beautiful overlooking the ocean, we have 5 ghz Wi-Fi, a first since the beginning of our travels, we are in a state of shock…lol. Ruth, the owner, said you're not going to see puffins in the fog; best to head to King's Cove; there is a giant iceberg there.
Off iceberg hunting, we went and were not disappointed despite our great success in Twillingate. Good pic. Great 2 km hike to the Lighthouse, and then off again to find where the puffins were hanging out. The fog was so dense you couldn't see in front of you to see so will try again tomorrow. The town of Bonavista is the biggest town on the peninsula, so we'll do some exploring. Sylvia has dug up some pics of our visit to Bonavista in 2005, of which I have zero recollection other than visiting the root cellars. Foggy like crazy now, so again hoping for clear weather tomorrow.
