After the west coast, we headed east on the Trans Canada Highway (TCH) toward Saint John's.  We stopped for a couple nights just past Gander to see the small town of Twillingate and its associated islands and lighthouses.  It's a really pretty area and we had wonderful weather for sight seeing.  One of Twillingate's big attractions is iceberg tours earlier in the year.  They break off from the Greenland ice sheet and wash up on Newfoundland's northern shore every spring.  By August, they were virtually all melted.  We saw one grounded across the bay using binoculars, but too far away to appreciate.  No commentary on the pictures, just really pretty coastal scenery from northern Newfoundland on a warm, sunny day in August!
