    We left Twillingate this morning after a quick tour of town and a fuel stop and on to the ferry!

    Just munched mussels and heading for secret beach camping spot #1

    And the locals thought the Aussie tourists had gone off the deep end, so to speak.

    PS; The eagle has landed.

    Welcome to St. John's... was thinking of visiting Twillingate next weekend. Don't suppose you could share the co-ordinates of that cliffside campsite? Looks awesome.

    Head for the lighthouse and take the last turn left before lighthouse signed to free RV parking then keep heading up to left on dirt track .... sorry don’t have coordinates but not hard to find. It’s close to base of wooden stairs going up coastal pathway. Enjoy.

    I’d also highly recommend Fogo and Tilting in particular. Free camping on LHS as you enter the town behind a nice sandy beach.

    Thanks, I've camped in Twillingate before down by the beach and I've also been to Fogo and Tilting. Glad you are enjoying your trip. Looks like the weather is improving!
