Day 71: Argentia to St. John's Newfoundland

Congratulations Team We Made it!

We cycled a grand total of 136 km's today to the most easterly point of our journey St. John's Newfoundland. We cycled through some spectacular scenery. It's so hard to describe what I saw without comparing it to something I have already seen sooo here it is. We cycled up and down hills all day. Not the most strenuous of hills (well until we got to St. John's). The lakes here are called Ponds...This bewilders me since they seem big enough to be called lakes. On the plains entering into the city rock reminds me of hiking in the mountain prairies back on Hudson Bay Mountain (Smithers) as a child. The trees are notably stunted from the severe winds, and short growing season. Rocks are evident, jutting up in various, random, locations and mosses and low lying shrubbery fill in the remaining area. I imagine it to be something similar to the tundra in the northwest territories but a lot more trees.

We rounded the highway and cycled into the city of St. John's still together as a team after so many long days of riding. We headed for our final destination, a park in the center of town on Water St. with a memorial commemorating the beginning of Terry Fox's journey across Canada. Where his journey began our journey across Canada came to an end. We pulled into the park where we met Paul from the Newfoundland Lung Association who greeted us with celebratory bottles of Champagne. Hip Hip hurray! We made it all the way! Congratulations team we made it. Hugs all around.

After we accomplished our goal the gang was off to find accommodations for the next few nights. Cam and Christine stayed in a B&B while Alisha, Jennica and I stayed in a hostel. We thought we were done cycling for the day but then we had to climb the hill to the hostel. This hill was probably one of the steepest we climbed all trip. All three of us had to take a break half way up, either to change into a lower gear or catch our breath. I don't know how you would drive these hills when there is slushy snow on the ground?????

We moved our stuff into our rooms for the evening then the gang went out for dinner to celebrate our accomplishment and replenish our souls together.

CONGRATULATIONS.....mission accomplished.
When you have returned you will have to let us know how you did with your fundraising efforts. I imagine it may take a while to get the final results ...until all the envelopes are mailed in and pledges to funds along the way are kept. Hopefully the BC Lung Assoc will have a tally for you.

It is good to know everyone arrived safe and sound.
Meanwhile treasure the memories of places you saw, people you met and hospitality received. I hope and pray that one day ALL of you may return the hospitality you received to someone else in need....pay it forward.
Love Mom/ Gillian

Prendergast when the Oregon bill passed? And if poor Prendergast stays there! Certainly, the http://startso11.info/steam+Convection.html worst use you can make of a man is to put him in prison! I know, indeed, that public men of the highest rank have resorted to this expedient long ago.. As if it were at all necessary that they should! And her lover, like a boy who finds a pearl in the public http://startso11.info/opowiadania+o+dziewicach.html street, and wonders as much that others did not see it as that he did, will tremble until he knows his passion is returned; feeling, of course, that the whole world must be in love with this paragon who cannot possibly smile upon anything so unworthy as he.. In her opinion, that would http://startso11.info/nawigacia+gps.html not have mattered very much.. Of course!--ketch him! she said. http://startso11.info/Pulmunologia+woj.opolskie.html. The spelling-schools http://startso11.info/OKAYAMA.html were remembered, however, and Ellen Kingsbury made one of the merry company; but the latest letter had not forgotten to caution Mr.. When I went to church and saw a thin, blue, artificial flower, or a great sleepy cushion expounding the beauty http://startso11.info/Rihanna+-+Umbrella.html of holiness to pews full of eagles, half-eagles, and threepences, however adroitly concealed in broadcloth and boots: or saw an onion in an Easter bonnet weeping over the sins of Magdalen, I did not feel as they felt who saw in all this, not only propriety, but piety.. The idea of anybody calling Kate Stimson 'Kitty'! The deacon will talk that way to 'most any woman, but if she let him say it to her more than once, she must be http://startso11.info/pluszak+z+miejscem+na+zdj%C4%99cie.html getting mighty anxious, I think.. They are facts that no one http://startso11.info/nazwy+konserwant%C3%B3w.html would deny--and we should have a poor opinion of the ass who, at--er--such a supreme moment, would attempt to suggest that his call was unthinking and without significance.. But shouldn't it be the other way round ? This inversion obviously took place in the dream when Goethe attacked the young man, which is absurd, whilst any one, however young, http://rebestal.info/cuptom.html can to-day easily attack the great Goethe.. So it was when, http://startso11.info/www.alwys.pl.html near the heat of the day, the good man arrived at the drugstore, the last and only unvisited division of trade, he made his appearance equipped with half a hundred packages, which nestled in his arms and bulged out about the sections of his clothing that boasted of pockets.. There she http://startso11.info/www.o2.pk.html comes now, explained Sister Poteet, and as I live the deacon drove her here in his sleigh, and he's waiting while she comes in.. We meant to http://startso11.info/telefon+motorolla.html stay out until the Bredes had taken their departure; but we returned just in time to see Pete, the Jacobus darkey, the blacker of boots, the brasher of coats, the general handy-man of the house, loading the Brede trunks on the Jacobus wagon.. So far as children's http://startso11.info/elblag.pl.html dreams are concerned, our view should find ready acceptance.. Brede took their summer vacation. http://startso11.info/faktura+wz%C3%B3r.html. Leonard's, were enabled to attire themselves in a manner that would not seem out http://startso11.info/suzuki+bandit.html of place in the smaller company they expected to meet at the Watkinsons.. It's a new http://startso11.info/nowoczesne+meble.html war drama, Lydia.. It was a small thing. http://startso11.info/odpowiedzi+do+egzamin%C3%B3w+gimnazjalnych+2007.html. If we subject the content of the http://storyah44.info/poznajmy+si%C4%99.html dream to analysis, we become aware that the dream fear is no more justified by the dream content than the fear in a phobia is justified by the idea upon which the phobia depends.. The stair-house was the house in which he had spent the greatest part of his childhood, and in which he http://startso11.info/www.ceramika-witon.pl.html had first become acquainted with sexual problems..
