Newfoundland Road Trip – Twillingate

August 30, 2017


Besh and I just did a 1 week stay-cation on 3 islands in the northern part of Newfoundland. We van camped on Twillingate Island first for the first night, then Fogo Island for 2 nights and then we rented a very old house in Change Islands for 3 nights. What a time we had!

From Holyrood, we drove straight up to Twillingate (5 hrs) and even up to Crow’s Head just a bit more north. Visited the Crow’s Nest Cafe there who have been selling my artwork for about 6 years now. Which means the trip is an art biz tax write off… and I will probably do a painting or two from here eventually 🙂

My artwork looks all nice and cozy here at the Crow’s Nest 🙂



The wild roses everywhere smell like pink lemonade!



Our van camping spot for the night. Was VERY hard to find a good secluded spot in or around Twillingate.


The long search for this camping spot was well worth it in the end!
