22-Aug-2011 -- After visiting the north of the Newfoundland we were heading back down to spend a couple of days in the Gros Morne National Park. On the way we made the short detour to visit this point. My Garmin GPS shows this as just on land - I had not looked at the previous 2 visits.
The point lies about 150 metres off a minor road through thick forest. We parked outside Ray's Lounge - not much business going on there and set off on a direct route - 140 metres from the car. We detoured to stay in the thinnest of the woodland but it got thicker and scratchier. Fortunately it was neither wet or insect-ridden - the other two normal prerequisites of points in woodland. After a while we ended up coming out of the wood and on to the stone beach. We quickly realised that the point was in the water and I was not about to go back for the airbed to allow me to swim with camera and GPS. It was a pity that Maggie did not get the chance to do the dance - another day. We returned by walking along the beach to a point behind Ray's Lounge and walking straight up an easy path. Why is it always so much easier on the return?
