Day 7 contd. from NYC & Portland forum if you would like to know about our first week travel.
This TR is in response to all the kind and helpful advice from all the TA forum participants, our trip would not have been the same without it. Special thanks to bonniemaev, maineronthego and lovingbarharbor who have provided so much insight info.
Ok here we go.
We (mum,dad & 2 teens 15/17) arrived around 4.30 pm and headed straight to the Hulls Cove visitor centre to get some maps, explorer bus timetable, info and the NP permit before heading to our accomodation for the next 5 nights, the Mira Monte Inn B&B. We were happy with our 2 BR suite in the garden and the owner was friendly and a fountain of knowledge (see my separate review).
Once unpacked we attended the owner's cheese and wine reception before headaing out. We were thrilled to find that it was an easy stroll down to the village square, the shops and the harbour and we whiled away the next couple of hours just exploring the village and browsing the shops. We ended up at Pats Pizza place and had a decent meal before heading back to the Inn for a relaxing drink in our suite and planning the next day's itineray.
Days 8-11 to follow soon.
