newfoundland

We spent a week in Newfoundland this July. It was a hell of a time getting there, but once we were there, we really enjoyed it. The purpose of the trip was to attend a wedding, which was very lovely, but we spent the first six days just the two of us, travelling around the Avalon Peninsula. There was a lot of small towns, friendly people, deep fried fish, and beautiful scenery.

I thought I'd put up some of my favorite pictures from the trip. Enjoy!Path along the cliff at Signal Hill in St. John's. We did the 4k hike down the cliffs and back up in our flip flops. Not on purpose ...
The Battery in St. John's, very neat to walk through all the houses.Cliffs at Cape Spear, the Easternmost point in Canada. Very beautiful.Fin whales in the Atlantic Ocean, outside the St. John's harbour. We saw about 10 whales on this boat tour.

Humpback whale diving in the Atlantic Ocean, near Cape Spear. They kept diving over and over again to give us a good tail shot! It was a really nice boat tour, the weather was beautiful, we were on the ocean for the sunset.


Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve, a bird sanctuary at the southern tip of the peninsula. My pictures don't do it justice. It was so beautiful, so amazing. There will millions of birds all along the cliffs. You could walk right to the edge and look out over the ocean. It was so breathtaking, especially with the fog.

All in all a great trip, if you are ever waaay out east, it is worth seeing. We loved St. John's as well, a vibrant and exciting little town!
