Distance: 13km (7.5 miles)
It was a short day today, as we only had to walk to Port Blandford. But before we could pick up the T’Railway this morning, we first had to walk 20 minutes along the Trans-Canada Highway. Soon after we had hit the track again we saw our very first moose of this trip. He (or she) didn’t want to have his picture taken though and moved away before we could come any closer.
Port Blandford is a quiet community at the bottom of Clode Sound, and very close to Terra Nova National Park. It used to have a railway station as well of course, but that burnt down in 1978 and was never replaced. Elsie, our B&B (Serendipity) host took us on a shopping trip to the petrol station to buy supplies for the next few days and was kind enough to give us a little sightseeing tour on the way home. Thanks Elsie, you live in a beautiful area!
