No travels or news really to share today, since I worked all day. So I will share some information about where we’ve been staying in Millertown. Millertown is about 30 minutes off of Hwy 1 and has a large guesthouse called the Lakeview Inn. Not surprisingly, it has a view of the lake across the street. Owned and operated by Russ Squires and his son, Joshua, it is a quiet, make-yourself-at-home kind of place. Joanne comes in each day to prepare supper for everyone and we haven't been disappointed yet!
While it might seem a bit out of the way, it is not really, with access to ATV trails, lakes and short drives to other lovely area locations. There is a Beothuk national historic site close to hand which is not very widely known.
Having been fully engaged with work for the last couple of days, and must do so again today, I have not had much opportunity to explore it, but would still recommend the Lakeview Inn and Millertown as a great place to spend a few days in Newfoundland. In the summer there are some regular guests that work nearby, but also tourists coming and going. Everyone has been friendly and outgoing and it has been a pleasure to visit in the evenings when my work is finished.
I took some time today to give Fury a much-needed bath and wax. She has also had her chain cleaned and oiled and is ready to be back on the road tomorrow. It will be on to St. John’s where hopefully we can get her outfitted with a new headlight, then some days of exploration around the south-eastern region of Newfoundland. Stay tuned for more adventures!
