Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland

sunny 21 °C

Somehow two mosquitoes ended up in my tent last night.

I sure as heck didn’t see them before bed. I can just see it…these two conspiring on me as I lay down for a “good nights rest”. They know that if I caught them before bed, that I’d rip off each of their legs and wings before they got away.

Well, turns out that my forehead made a perfect spot for them to peck away at all night. So, after waking up to these two (by now) fat SOBs buzzing around my head, I proceeded to trap and rip each on of their legs and wings off. I know it sounds weird, but it felt darn good!

The Keeping’s (who owned the campground) recommended that a hike to Starlight Mountain makes for a good workout and nice view once you reach the top. So, after packing up camp and turning the orange portion of my rain jacket inside out (because it’s moose hunting season) I hiked to the top for a spectacular view of the area. To the north was Cambell’s Lake with hanging waterfalls and to the south, the mighty Atlantic. The hike only took about 3 hours and was well worth the short time.

Next stop: Gros Morne National Park...about a four hour drive.
