August 29th, 2010 This morning we were woken up by the sound of children outside of our tent; must be mid-morning judging by the buildup of heat inside. We popped our heads outside and noticed two little girls sitting beside a box, each one of them eating an apple. We introduced ourselves and told them where were from, but they were more interested in the mysterious box they were guarding. We inquired what was inside and they revealed it was a box full of apples like the ones you see at the grocery store. I guess somebody must have left it behind from a previous gathering or family picnic here in the park. We examined the apples carefully to make sure they were alright to eat and they were. Just as they were about to take their treasure to their secret hiding place, they realized the box was too heavy for them to carry and offered us to take some. We ended up taking 2 bags of apples, which made the box manageable for the girls to carry. They were very friendly and well spoken. We continued riding east along the Trans Canada Highway 1 and stopped at a gas station to top off on fuel and met the owner who also managed the restaurant next door. He was a jolly fellow and was playing songs native to Newfoundland on his accordion for his customers. Once again, people naturally inquire about where were from by the way our bikes are loaded up and the next thing we know, the owner gave us directions to a place where we can camp for free in Kings Point. One of the attractions here in Kings Point is the Humpback Whale Pavilion. We looked around and eventually found a gazebo to camp in. Were probably not supposed to do this, but if we leave early enough and tidy up; whos going to know? We had vegetable soup and chopped carrots for supper ..then gazed out into the open waters hoping to spot a humpback or an iceberg. I doubt well be seeing any icebergs; theyre long gone at this time of year. 134 km <EMBED height=300 type=application/x-shockwave-flash width=400 src=http://www.facebook.com/v/10150258875148477 allowfullscreen="true"></EMBED> Friendly encounters.
