Day 6 Greetings from Gander!

The picture says it all. Salvage, Newfoundland.

I love Newfoundland!

Hangin with Gordon in Salvage. He was born and raised there, a fisherman of course, great guy couldn't understand a thing he was saying!

This is a view from Joey's (Smallwood) Lookout on the Trans Canada. It overlooks the town of Gambo

Fishing shack with lobster traps in Salvage

I can't figure out how to remove this duplicate!

Day 5, this is a group of medal bearers in Gander, Nfld I had on my shuttle. They are all "difference makers", and there stories are all so inspiring.

This was in an overgrown cemetery in Salvage. A lot of the grave markers had poems on them.

Time to relax, sitting on the Trans Canada in Gander.

And so it begins,7000 difference makers!

Cape Spear Day One
Day one on the relay. My buddy Jacob (the first of 7000 medal bearers)  here did not let juvenile diabetes slow him down today! Rick Hansen passed him the medal in Cape Spear, Nfld. Way to go Jacob!
