On sunny winter days, the East Coast Trail can almost seem like a remote tropical destination, if you’re able to block out the biting cold…

Of course the sea is crystal clear here all year round, but after November some patches of fall-coloured landscape match up perfectly with the palette of any random desert island too:

‘Canary Islands’ colour-palette – Tappers Cove

‘Caribbean Waters’ colour-palette – Tappers Cove

Now, where did I leave my piña colada?
