On our way back to the ferry in Port Aux Basques, we stopped in at Cheri's parent's place for one last visit. Her mom made fish cakes and the most satisfying mac and cheese. Their home is situated on a lake - what a beautiful setting. They made us feel so welcome we hated to leave.
We drove quite a distance that day and finally stopped at Marble Mountain, just outside Corner Brook. The accommodations were superb and dinner absolutely perfect. After indulging in a gourmet meal, we retired to our spacious room and slept like logs!
In the morning we set out again and finally experienced gorgeous blue skies and sunshine. On a side-trip to Cape Saint George we found an Alpaca Farm on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Having such perfect weather was a fantastic way to end our stay in Newfoundland.
We grabbed a quick meal before boarding the ferry for Nova Scotia but this time we managed to book a berth - truly the way to go!
We absolutely adored Newfoundland and we will never regret the time spent exploring there. The people are friendly and generous, the landscapes magnificent, and the communities welcoming and hospitable. I hope the rest of the country can cope with the bar being set that high!
