Joey’s Lookout – Gambo, NL
Gambo, NL depicted above was the homestead of the Province’s first Premier, Joseph R. Smallwood. He signed the documents that brought Newfoundland & Labrador into Confederation as the newest province of Canada on April 1st, 1949.
We stopped at “Joey’s Look-Out” for the amazing views of the homes neighbouring the adjacent river. One thing that was missing was the images outlining “Joey” wearing those iconic black-rimmed eyeglasses. As well, the hotdog card that has been ever-present when the weather is a little warmer.
For those who know me well, know me as a “Road Warrior”, as I seldom stop once in the car. Passengers are aware that when I stop be sure to use the restroom and grab your snacks as it will be maybe 500+ km before the next time the car pulls off the TCH.
Although I am learning the importance of just stopping to catch my breath every once and awhile. If we never stop for a moment, we miss the beauty of a place such the views from the look-out.
