My thread of "14 day planning" was getting way too long so I decided to start a new one. Plus our time in Newfoundland has changed quite a bit!!
Thank you to all for the advice and suggestions. I think we will do 2 nights in St Anthony so that we can have one full day and use the 3rd night back at Gros Morne in case we wanted to revisit anything we might not have gotten to do there. This will also break up our trip as our next destination will be Twillingate. We have also learned from previous road trips that it is important to have a "down day" to relax from long days of travel..especially us "older active adults"( I say that very cautiously) Hiking and photography and just enjoying our surroundings/stunning scenery are priorities.
We are considering bringing our kayaks on our roof. It looks like there may be quiet flat water /gentle bays to kayak in almost everywhere we go (we do not kayak rough waters) any kayaking gems in our visitation areas?
Here is a new revisit to full 27 day itinerary:
Keep the suggestions coming! I am now looking at serious lodging.. B&B's mostly, maybe a cabin/cottage here or there.
A little concerned that 3 nights may be too much at Bonavista but still researching. Thinking that maybe we should switch the 3rd night to another in St Johns area??
