Look who showed up today:

Rogier – St. John’s Airport

Rogier insisted I tell you he really looks much better than this, what you see here is the result of 15 hours of flying in coach, part of which was spent sitting next to 3 screaming toddlers.

After we dropped off his luggage we relaxed for a bit at Starbucks, drove by Middle Cove beach which was totally swamped with capelin traffic, and we finished the day with a seaside drive through Portugal Cove and had some fish & chips in St. Philip’s.

We were very lucky to see 2 minke whales close to shore in the Portugal Cove harbour, and 3 humpback whales at sunset. After sunset, we even saw a humpback breaching, all from our dinner table at By The Beach restaurant.

Next on the agenda: blissful sleep.
