This morning we dropped off an acquaintance and his dog for a sixteen day trek on The East Coast Trail. Eliot left from the trail head in Cappahayden. His plan is to walk to Portugal Cove. The distance to Fort Amherst is 215kms. Then he has to walk the trail to Portugal Cove. This is an additional 75-80 kms. I hope he is able to finish the walk. Received an e mail that he was soaked on his second day as we had about 20 mm of rain.
I had to chase down the trail after him as he left his dog pack in the trunk with the dog’s rations. Glad we found it before he got too far..it would have messed up months of planning.
Some photos from the drive.
We stopped at The Colony of Avalon, Tea Room in Ferryland for lunch. We had seafood chowder, tea, bread pudding a tea biscuit and fish cakes. It was a good meal, although a little expensive. This is a great place to spend a few hours.
