Update from the Road

We’re currently on the homeward leg of our West Coast tour, and have put over 2600 km on the bikes so far. All I can say is that it’s been an amazing trip…we’ve seen spectacular mountains, beautiful beaches, tropical butterflies, alpacas, lighthouses, and sea stacks. We’ve been to the most westerly point on the island of Newfoundland and to the end of the road in Rose Blanche: the furthest east you can get on the south west coast without a boat. We rode through sweltering heat and torrential rain, even thunder and lightning…which was both thrilling and terrifying.

I have literally hundreds of pictures to sort through, and it will probably take me weeks to organize our trip into a series of coherent blog posts!

Stay tuned for stories and pictures from West Coast Tour 2014 🙂

  1. Krista:

    you’re so brave for riding in the torrential rain(s). Can’t wait to see your photos

  2. Hopefully you were able to enjoy a snack at Madolyn’s Tea Room in Rose Blanche.

    • The Tea Room was actually closed when we passed through. But with darkening skies we didn’t really want to delay anyways. Seemed like we were trying to avoid/race thundershowers on most of this trip.

      • Closed? Just temporarily? Or really closed? Hopefully the owner’s health and that of her husband hasn’t dictated a change in their life. Gord
