Epilog- Newfoundland 2018

Our trial camping run last  fall taught us some valuable lessons; one we failed to heed was camping in the rain.  We both hate camping in the rain.  It rained four of the seven nights we camped;  three in Gros Morne.

Gros Morne has to be seen to be believed.  We are planning to go back and spend a week there before going onto Labrador proper.

Cabot Trail-  the northern section is amazing; a side trip to Meat Cove should be on everyone's "must do" list

Canadians- polite doesnt even describe them.  Even their version of Massholes wave "thank you" after you yield to them for a pass.  Speaking of passing, Canadians have amazing lane discipline;  once they complete a pass, back into the right lane.  No hanging out in the passing lanes; no lolly gagging, do their business and back into the right lane.   There is nearly no litter in Canada.  We counted probably 2 dozen total pieces of litter in the 14 days we were in Canada; most of it was "lost" and not just tossed out the window.  Several of the "lost" were Tim Horton coffee cups that had obviously been left on car rooftops and driven off.

The fresh fish is awesome. period.  full stop.

This leaves poor PEI as the only province not visited as well as the Labrador portion of Newfoundland-Labrador.  BTW, it's pronounced "new found land" like it's three separate words; the accent is on "land" too.
