Riding on Cobwebs
First week wet and windy, brilliant sunshine now. Stay in tent on really wet days. Covered 1000km. Crossed to west coast village of Rocky Harbour, climbed Gros Mourne, had to use knife to cut steps in snow to reach summit. Perfect biking country, long rolling highway with wide paved shoulder. great roadside camping. Eat huge meals of fish and chips - waitress shasay's over,like Bette Midler, "How are ya, me darlin'". Today I'm in Grand Falls/Windsor getting supplies. Next is a four day jaunt to Twillingate in search of icebergs. Flight home Nov 1st.
