Sandy Beaches at Norris Point, Gros Morne National Park

 
Tropical Paradise on March 21, 2011 at Gros Morne?
I always enjoy treks to Gros Morne National Park, which is one of our Rural Crown Jewels
Footprints

On March 21, 2011, I was pleasantly surprised to walk the shores and find a beautiful sandy beach. The Town was quiet as I met very few people during my stroll on the beach this afternoon. I screamed of being a tourist with my Nikon DSLR camera and the fact that Norris Point is small enough that everyone knows everyone in the community during the off-season.

An amazing view...

The Town of Norris Point may be small in population (pop. 850 in 1996), but during summer, like Prince Edward Island the tourists will out-number residents by a grossly disproportioned amount. Tourists at Gros Morne National Park exceed 180,000 people in season.

Looking onwards, towards the Mountains

There are many reasons to visit Norris Point. One I recommend is to take time to tour the shoreline. You will be surprised by the furry of activity from the  fishers, sea life, birds and sounds of the water gently rolling over the sandy beaches.
