At the recommendation of Tim and Donna from Texas I stayed at the Grand Codroy camp and RV park. It was quite a nice place with free firewood, internet and awesome hospitality to boot.
The Codroy Valley area in Newfoundland is a very scenic area so I decided to take a drive. The drive led me to the ocean front where gigantic 20 foot waves were pounding the shoreline. This was impressive.
Further along on the drive I happened upon another lighthouse and stopped to visit it for a good while. Once I reached the town of Codroy I stopped at the local auto mechanic so I could tighten up the bike rack. With a welcoming greeting the local mechanic sold me a 7/16ths washer and loaned me his nicest adjustable wrench in the shop. They say up here that if you’re ever in need of some help, go find a Newfie (short for Newfoundlander) – they will assist with pleasure. I found this to be nothing less than true.
After a stop at the wetland interpretive center, I picked up some gifts for family and headed back to camp.
