Today we were hiking in the park, but there are so many trails how do we choose? It was a nice sunny day, about 16 degrees. We stopped at the visitor centre just down the road from the KOA and asked the ranger to suggest some shorter, easier trails to get us warmed up. We also got our park trout fishing license. Look out brookies the Dickinson's are in the park!!! Our first hike was up Rocky Hills Trail. This lookout was once used as a lookout for returning boats. So much for starting slow, it was 20 minutes up a fairly steep hill. When we got to the top it was beautiful overlooking Rocky Harbour, surrounded by mountains. We talked to 2 ladies from Edmonton that we saw on the ferry coming over to the island, they had just come from the Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse, so that is was going to be our next stop.

We drove down to Norris Point, apparently the most scenic town in the park. You can look out over Bonne Bay and see the tablelands.
I had tons of pics to take down here, so Doug went in and had a beer with locals and found out some of the hotspots for fishing. Then it was time to go back and have our surf and turf....yummy!
