After re-reading the way we ended that last post, got to wondering how many of you thought we had stayed here, with this guy.
You'd be surprised at the number of trails we have seen in Newfoundland. We say surprised because we are not talking about 'official' trails. The trails we are talking about probably wouldn't even be listed anywhere.
As we drive down roads at random, roads that literally end in someone's yard, there will be an arch (like the one above) and a simple sign that says "Trail".
We're still getting used to a few things about Newfoundland. One of those is that as you drive down the street, a street that is not always wide enough for two vehicles, you see a trail sign and there is no place to park. Still, you just sort of 'park' and go for a walk. At least that is how we've interpreted the situation.
One of these days, we'll actually do it. Meanwhile, there is a whole other group of trails on island; the 'official' ones. Carmanville Wetlands Trail system is one of those and in the morning we awoke to the sounds of happy creatures stirring. As we walked we were lucky to spot a few of them, too.
We have seen the Horsetail plant in one form or another in just about every place we've visited over the years. Though we're still learning to identify its many forms, we have recently learned a fascinating fact about this plant.
We considered staying a bit longer but the ocean called and we answered.
