Day 5: Exploring Rocky Harbour

After yesterday’s Gros Morne hike both Atty and I were in recovery mode from the hike.  So the day consisted of doing some laundry, and a walk through Rocky Harbour.  We came upon an old cemetery on the edge of town which we explored.  What you’ll notice in Newfoundland is that most cemeteries are located in view of the ocean.  They all have a similar story to tell in that life for the inhabitants was hard and death came early for many.
