After Zodiac excursions in Placentia Bay and Aviron Bay, we looked forward to going ashore for a short hike in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The easy Lookout Trail was a great introduction to this fascinating part of Canada.
Our first couple of days aboard the RCGS Resolute for One Ocean's Labrador and Torngat Mountains Explorer cruise took us to places that were not on the published itinerary. What a treat to get to places expedition cruises rarely venture! In fact our second Zodiac excursion was one of the scenic highlights of our trip!
Placentia Bay was not on the published itinerary for our 11-day Labrador and Torngat Mountains expedition cruise, but we appreciated the true expedition experience, including the opportunity to witness an at-sea bunkering operation and meet one of the residents of tiny Fox Harbour, NL.
This month marked our first major vacation since our family trip to Iceland in 2015. And our Atlantic Canada itinerary included plenty of National Historic Sites, National Parks and other truly Canadian experiences. Returning home late on July 30th allows just enough time to select and share five photographs for this month's photo blogging challenge theme: patriotic.
