Made it to the Rock!
Below are a few photos of Port aux Basques (Gateway to Newfoundland) upon our arrival. We disembarked at 7:30 a.m. and toured the Port aux Basques area. We visited the Rose Blanche granite Lighthouse. Originally built in 1871 and restored in 1999. They are no longer manned with the beacon solar powered.

As luck had it, the weather from Montreal and New Brunswick changed dramatically - rained all the way to Cornerbrook. First disappointment is we had to cancel our 4-hour dory tour with Duncan Barr to see bald eagles, whales, other waterfowl and have a mussel boil-up. Wise advice from Duncan to avoid unwanted problems. Water is about 4C.
A few pics of the Kruger Paper Mill where Glenn first met a long time and recently departed friend George Bunze – brought back memories. We were booked for two nights in Cornerbrook, but decided it was best to get out of dodge and head north to Norris Point. Lousy drive with much rain on the roads and from the skies.
