These last few days were the final days of the summer of 2012, and what a great summer it was. Whales may not have been as numerous as the years before, but the spectacular weather made up for all of that; I think I saw more sunshine this summer than in the three preceding summers combined!

These last few days were also the final days of my sister’s visit to Newfoundland, she had a great time. Here are a few pictures:

We hiked many trails and enjoyed them all, we found berries, mushrooms and occasionally saw some wildlife.

After a supper of fish & chips we saw the sun setting behind the oil platform on Conception Bay:

On Thursday we hiked out to the Bull Head Light on Spout Path, we experienced many different kinds of weather that day:

My mom is here for another week, so I hope the first days of fall are as nice as the last days of summer.
