Excursion to the Bruce Peninsula

Clements Family on Georgian Bay

Our latest excursion was a four day camping trip at Bruce Peninsula National Park, near the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.

The camping at the Cyprus Lake campground could be described as "rugged", however, it was quite luxurious compared to canoe camping. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon with a van load of kayaks, bikes, tents, and camera gear.

Return to the Island

080102 sanibel 41

After Christmas, we returned to Sanibel Island for a week of fun and relaxation. Last there in 2005/06, we returned to the same condominium complex on the beach and stayed the whole week on the island. The trip was capped off with one bonus day at Fort Myers Beach, which is not a beach, but a city. Well, it is also a beach, but it is city on a long island just south of Fort Myers.

Oh Newfoundland!

newfoundland st johns

We finally made our dream trip to Newfoundland! It is everything we heard, and more! We flew into St. John's and toured around there for a couple days. From there, it was down the Avalon Peninsula to Cape Broyle for another two days. From our cottage in Cape Broyle, we were able to explore parts of the Avalon Peninsula, including the beautiful Ferryland, site of an archeological dig at the Colony of Avalon that was founded around 1621. From the Avalon Peninsula, we headed up to Bonavista for three days, then on to Twillingate (and Trinity!), and finally over to Gros Morne on the west coast.
