September 5th, 2010

This morning we rode at a leisurely pace to Bonavista.  Besides stopping for fuel in town, most of our time was spent at the lighthouse.  

Bonavista Lighthouse was built in 1842 and is now a provincial historic site

Partaking in a little rock climbing to get a better view.  Was it worth it?

Yeah, it was worth it.  So beautiful. 

The seemingly never ending Atlantic Ocean.  Who in their right mind would ever dream of navigating a ship through this?  It’s a suicide mission if you ask me.  Our little 1 year adventure is nothing compared to the explorers of the past. 

Travelers from around the globe leaving their mark by constructing an Inuksuk

The word Inuksuk means “something which acts for or performs the function of a person”.  It is a stone landmark or cairn used by the Inuit as a point of reference or marker for travel routes

Leaving Bonavista

En route to Twillingate 

We stopped in Gander at the local grocery store for dinner and bought McCain’s Deep & Delicious Cake to commemorate Job’s accomplishments as it approaches its 100,000 kilometer marker 

C’mon Amanda!  Use muscle! 

We managed to find a nook to set up camp off of highway 330 not too far from Gander.  Time for dessert!

293 km

Built on open plain.

O Buon Vista!
