We had taken the noon ferry from Sydney, NS to Port aux Basques, NL the night before. Other than a variety of bed and breakfasts that advertise as being 2.5 Stars, there are two hotels right in PAB. We basically flipped a coin and picked one. The room was fine. The dinner service was not. We knew to expect down home hospitality but 2.5 hours with a tired, cranky two year old stretched it a bit. Ah well, off to bed and the next morning we ate a quick peanut butter sandwich and hit the road.
I was absolutely stunned at the beauty of it all. Honestly. I have been so blessed to travel to a few of what I consider the world’s most picturesque places and yet I was awestruck at the wild beauty in the middle of what at first glance appears so barren. I am writing this from Ottawa on our return trip home and still after visiting other areas, this was my second favourite day of the trip. My most favourite day being the day after this one.
I am posting a huge amount of photos today. I need to remember what I saw and how I felt.
