St George's Bay
Three Rock Cove
Red Island, Gulf of St. Lawrence
The weather was so beautiful that it called for a road trip. The weather has been very unusual for the island and that was clearly evident. We headed for the Port a Port Peninsula which is approximately 80 kms away from Corner Brook and took the French Ancestors Route around the Peninsula.
As NL was settled by a variety of fishermen from many countries over 500 years ago, many of the names and influences remain. French, Irish, English to name a few. The scenery along the way always amazes me in its rugged beauty.
At this time of year, the ice usually moves in and surrounds the island with its icy arms of white. The only ice in any bay was at the end of the French Ancestors's Route, West Bay and it was only frazzle ice; not the usual thick pans of ice.
