Heading South

We continued to move south along the coast with our destination this time a repeat stop close to Gros Morne National Park.  Since we have already explored that area at our overnight site, we stop along the way to admire another small fishing village and wonder how they can continue to survive with the ongoing fishing reductions.














Then closer to our destination, we come upon the small Arches Provincial Park  where arches were formed over millions of years, as a result of glacial action along with wind and water erosion and other environmental changes.  Perhaps in a few hundred years, there will be very little left to see.












Next stop: Codroy Valley

Very different from our Arches park. Just love the darling little fishing villages. I too wondee how they manage these days.

The two times I have been to Newfoundland I have never seen Arches Provincial Park but now that I look at the map I see it is a little north of the furtherest northern point that I have been in Newfoundland. We definitely have to go back for a visit soon.

The landscape is always changing but I found it really happening at craters of the moon as brush and trees are taking over the lava fields. Many 9f thousands of years to go but still fascinating.

Your photos are lovely! Merry Christmas! I will be continuing my posts daily throughout Christmas and the New Year. :)

We, too, missed Arches Provincial Park on our way up NFL's west coast -- definitely our loss. Guess we will have to go back to "The Rock!" Arches Provincial Park is certainly different from America's Arches National Park. Love the pictures you posted.

The small fishing villages are fun placs to visit no matter where they are.

These arches remind me of Devil's Bridge in Aruba ... it eventually fell victim to the sea erosion and collapsed ... these will eventually as well, so best to enjoy them when the opportunity presents itself.
