Saturday had arrived! I had my kayak and gear at the end of the driveway and was waiting for Neville to pick me up for the drive out to Dildo Run Park.
We drove to the TCH Irving Station as planned and were the first ones there. Shortly after Brian, Hazen, and Tony showed up. Myself and Neville were sitting in his truck and the other guys were out of their vehicles alongside of Neville's open window. There was a bunch of chatting going on and after a while I became anxious to get going. I figured we could chat all we wanted once we got to the park. So, hoping that the guys would take it as the sign to get in their vehicles and get moving, in a lowered voice I said "Neville, start the truck." This turned into a bit of a joke during the trip... Anyway, off we went, stopping for coffee in Clarenville and lunch in Gander before finally arriving at the park....

We decided to take a little drive, had supper in a restaurant, and drove up to Devils Cove Head.

and it was interesting to see it from both perspectives
Back at the park we had a little fire and a couple drinks before turning in for the night.
I did not sleep well the night before and only had about four hours of broken sleep during this first night in the tent...
