It wasn’t easy getting up at 5 AM in Montreal. For Granny and me 5 AM is like 3 AM. But then flashes of huge brook trout in Labrador entered the brain and next thing I knew we were at the Provincial Airlines flight gate. This flight originally wasn’t so early but the airport in Wabush is under construction and closes from 1 PM till 1 AM.
We flew on a DHC – 8 – 100 from Montreal to Quebec City to Sept Iles to Wabush and arrived at noon. Our host Paul Ostiguy was on a different flight with Air Canada and because of a delay from Montreal missed the 1 PM arrival time. Paul had to stay in Sept Iles and will arrive at noon tomorrow. This is a bummer!
Fortunately, I was wrong yesterday. We weren’t heading to McKenzie River Lodge today but rather tomorrow. So after Paul arrives we’ll board the Otter and fly further north. Granny and I explored Labrador City this afternoon and tonight. There’s not much here but we found an all you can eat tablet order Sushi buffet that worked well!
I don’t think we have internet from here on out so day by day accounts will post starting August 9th.
