ATV ride with Pirate's Haven in Robinsons, Newfoundland!

On our way north from Port aux Basques, we stopped off at Pirate's Haven, in the tiny west coast town of Robinsons, where Paul and Ruth Gale took us on the ATV ride of our lives.


They have set up a park with a campground, chalets, and a restaurant on a huge plot of land perched atop the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. We rode the bikes, as they called the four-wheelers, to the edge for a view beyond compare.

Their park is an amazing project that they have taken on singled-handedly over the past ten years, and it rivals any public lands we've seen for natural beauty.

Riding back for a bite at their restaurant we crossed the Robinsons River on a trestle from the old Newfoundland Railway that went out of service in1988. The Gales helped save the crumbling bridge and now it has new life for hikers, bikers, skiers, and snowmobilers as part of T'Railway Provincial Park multi use trail that spans the entire island.

Back at the home base Ruth served up lunch of delicious cod au gratin.

We got the feeling we were going to find out just how many ways there are to cook a cod.

Little did we know that we would soon be kissing one...see more of our adventures in Western Newfoundland!
