After messing around in Salmon Cove, finding a hermit crab and generally fooling around with water (always fun, no matter the temperature), we meandered north along Route 70 for a ways, stopping here and there to see things that looked interesting.
We dipped down into Spout Cove, which is one of those places that I’ve always driven by and never stopped to see. It was lovely and there was a nice geocache.
Then we stopped at Ochre Pit Cove, another community that we’ve often passed through but never explored. There were some interesting things about this location; a heritage house, an old gravesite, and a spot from which red ochre can be easily obtained.
The beach area held a geocache and a neat rock wall, along with the ochre. We had a job keeping the kids from getting completely plastered with red dirt.
And then it was off to the next community, or the one after that. In any event, we simply HAD to detour when we saw a sign saying, “Low Point, 2k →”
Low Point is at the end of a very bumpy road and when you get there, you find approximately a dozen houses, a very unique church and a marvelously scenic spot.
And then we pushed on again, heading further north in search of adventure and ice cream.
