Newfie bound part 2

Our first sight of Newfoundland. It was a cold rainy day when we docked and it pretty well stayed that way the first day. We had to travel through an place called Wreakarea. This is where the ocean blows such strong winds that it has been known to blow transports off the road. We were thank full that at the time we went through it was windy but still able to travel. When the winds get to high the road is shut down.

Betty's sister was our host for the first day on the island. Geraldine took us up to see the point where the Dover Crash took place. We got to see a piece of the plane and look at a very small part of the island .

A piece of the plane from the crash...

Hubby having a cat nap. We put in 2 long days of driving and a
short sleep on the boat. We docked at 7:00 am so he only got about 5 hours of sleep

A much deserved wash. The bikes were really dirty and covered in salt from the ride along the ocean front. Of course we had bugs from 5 different province to get washed off.
