The second leg of our trip.
When we woke in La Plante Harbour the next day it was early morning sunshine. I was up at 6 and went for a morning pee then set off on a hike to take pictures. When the sun shines ya gotta make hay! The header image was taken that morning July 2nd. After 26 km yesterday (it will be 36km today) it was good to stretch the legs again.
Early fog was developing already but the sun was quick to burn some off.
The coastal Iris and Newfoundland's provincial flower the Pitcher Plant. It is a beautiful carnivorous plant and possesses a prey-trapping mechanism whose deep cavity holds a liquid known as "pitfall trap". Just after my slip on seaweed coated rocks and a good ole shin gouging I was ready to relax and enjoy the light.
With our vehicles on our doorsteps it was time to catch breakfast and break camp.
A Beautiful day as we head down La Poile bay. About three down and three back up. I took more of a diagonal crossing to Eastern Point so it was probably more tan 6 kms I'm sure. Ralph breaking the water today.
La Poile is a small village that still receives ferry service from Rose Blanche-Burgeo. We didn't take out here it was purely for interest sake and rubber boots. lol
In Roti Bay we decide on a break at this beach Tony is heading for.
Fuelled up we begin again and start to make our way between mainland and Jacques Island.
