Decided to do a throwback Thursday post to one of the coolest places I’ve ever been.
The cool thing about Fogo Island is that it’s the largest island off the coast of Newfoundland, and has a handful of these very modern buildings against the rugged terrain. When I was there, there were five studios, along with the Fogo Island Inn that bring tourists from near and far to this beautiful Island.
I really didn’t know how else to name this post (lol). These cute furry mounds of flubber are being studied at the Ocean Science Centre!
One of my favourite things to do while in St. John’s is to hike the East Coast Trails. This was captured at the top of the sugarloaf path!
On a side note, we took a utility road to get off this trail and back to our car, and when we reached the gate there was a sign that said “Coyote sightings in area. KEEP OUT!”.. Definitely made me nervous about going on any other trails for the rest of the trip.
One of the things Jeff is always telling me is never to go anywhere without my camera. Today, I learned the real reason why this little tip is so important. We went out for lunch today, and didn’t really have any plans after that, so we decided to see what icebergs were out around the coast. As soon as we got out to Torbay, the fog started to roll in. This is something I have never witnessed before in my life, and it was breathtaking. And here I was, without a camera. My heart took a serious plummet to my stomach, I was that upset. The fog was rolling into the cove, over the iceberg, and up the cliff face, and I was trying to get a somewhat decent picture with my iPhone. We didn’t even have time to go back and get our cameras, because we looped back to Torbay ten minutes later and the fog had lifted. Let’s just say, from now on my camera will always be in the trunk of whatever vehicle I am taking.
This is the semi-decent picture I got from the end of a sketchy road we went down to find a lookout. The only bright side of this story was the two lovely kitties that came over while I was taking pictures.
If you look closely through the fog around the 1st third of the picture you can see the iceberg through the fog. I also apologize about the fact that this picture looks extremely crooked, there was a sudden drop after the bushes, which made the picture look extremely warped.
Here is the video of us zip lining, as promised!
