Gander, NL 8-2-14

Gander is most interesting for location and history.  See Sharon’s Blog - for details.  She did a great coverage on Gander.

Yesterday we enjoyed a walk at  Cobb’s Park – a boardwalk – walk around the lake ~ 2km thru the woods, marsh with look outs across the pond along the way.                                   IMG_1041  IMG_1037


This is Gander Festival Week with carnival and various activities. Saturday night was a “Kitchen Party” -  that is a gathering of friends with music and dance.  Parties start late in NL – doors opened at 9p – music started close to 10p for the 1st of 4 groups playing into the wee hours.  First group was “Freshly Squeezed” popular St John’s group, then the “Navigators” we had seen in Twillingate, Abbey Road (played Beatles music), and last a local Gander group – we left mid Abbey Road --- we’re getting old – music was just too LOUD!  Enjoyable if just a bit less volume.

Wow, I'd need to take an afternoon nap to be able to attend.
