Maritime Trip - Day 6

 It rained heavily all night and all morning. Put a damper on activity but my car finally got a good wash.
The photo is that clean vehicle parked outside our apartment suite. Busy place eh?

We had a wonderful breakfast - bacon and eggs bought at the local grocery/hardware store and home-made hash browns that I made with potatoes brought from home - yes I brought potatoes on our vacation - lucky we didn't fly here. Dinner will be equally awesome. There are definite advantages to having a full kitchen in the suite.

The rain stopped around noon so we took a walk into town a few kilometres away. The morning fog had not yet lifted but it was a nice walk around the harbour.

Mountain avens flourish on the island which is interesting because it's the national flower of Iceland.

Just outside of town they have done a huge environmental restoration in the Big Meadow Bog. That entailed building a long boardwalk across the bog to solicit involvement and interest from the community and visitors to the island. Good job Westport!
