Newfoundland, Canada. Friendly, beautiful, rugged, wild, true Canada.

This is a neighbourhood in St. John’s, Newfoundland called ‘The Battery’. It’s a community of solid, salt of the earth folk who’ve built their homes right into the cliff face. More than one window that I peered into had a boulder in the livingroom.

Cabot Trail on Cape Bretan Island, Nova Scotia, Canada is one of those must do drives in this country. Bring a rain coat and fleece, leave the RV before heading into the hills and definatly don't bring up Old Smokey. Steep roads not for the faint of heart. Bring camera, hiking boots and binoculars. Visit fishing warfs along the way and stop in at the local food stops and try the the fresh sea chowder.

Black bears strolling the grounds but not interfering with campers. Hope to go for more than 1 night next time. Stop on Trans Canada going / returning western Canada.

Gros Morne National Park, Nfld. Bring your rain gear, hiking boots, camera, extra rain gear and lots of time to wait out the rain and wind. We tried to go sea kayaking for a week but the rain and winds did not let up. Guess I'll have to go back. Lovely drive up the coast. Fly and rent a car or drive and take the ferry. Book early if you want a cabin. Camping in National park or stay in town or bed and breakfast.

Tombstone Territorial Park,   Yukon.   Its just a little way north on the Dempster Highway. Dempster is 20 mins. east of Dawson City on the Klondike Highway, a days drive north of Whitehorse. Extremely remote. Bring lots of food, water, spare tires (2), bug spray and jacket, spare auto emergency breakdown parts. (Closest garage is Whitehorse.) If hiking bring topo and compass, bear spray and bangers and a friend or 2. Dont forget the camera. Its breath-taking.
