Harbour Grace, Canada - 6th June 2011

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

we drove to Harbour Grace - but we stopped in a little village - and took a photo of this nice church.

Then we arrived in Harbour Grace. Behind me you can see the the SS Kyle. The vessel was pruchased by the Earl Brothers Fisheries of Carbonear in 1960 and used in the seal trade until 1967 when an iceberg accident caused her to be moored in the Harbour Grace harbour. During a storm the SS Kyle broke its moorings and drifted to Riverhead where it has been standing ever since.

Amelia Earhart took flight from Harbour Grace on May 20, 1932, to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. The plane behind her monument is the "Spirit of Harbour Grace".

We had a closer look at the SS Kyle from here, too.

After looking at all these exciting things we drove to our next destination.  We made a rest at this lovely place.

There were beautiful rocks in the sea behind me, but unfortunately they are really small on the picture. But they were wonderful when I saw them.

Some kilometers later we saw a moose next to the road. We all were so glad - and of course I wanted a photo with it.
