Sadly it is time to leave Twillingate and travel on. “T” a delighful, beautiful, friendly town upon the bay. Decided to drive #330 east along the water – Denny had heard of a nice boondocking spot along the water. And there it was….. Ocean front property………
Surprise – there were new friends we had met in “T” parked there too! Someone had given them a fresh Cod Fish – so it was a pot luck dinner to share.
During the afternoon they took me ‘cape apple’ picking – also know as cloud berries. What an adventure across the field and thru the woods – now let me tell you a bog is not flat, nor is it level --- it is one foot up and oh my one foot way down, then a step or two along a narrow high spot and then down into the mud. Needless to say – clumsy me was down a few times….. but we did find the allusive berry – one singe berry per plant – and the area already well picked. The trick is to pick the ripe ones – they are just a bit sweet with a seed or two inside. We were told a gallon of berries can sell for $100 – I believe it! Will make Cape Apple Jelly with my pick!
After dinner it was a camp fire with music – a delightful way to end the day along the sea shore with friends.
