A warm day to see the capelin roll – Middle Cove

What a fantastic day to see the capelin roll on Middle Cove beach! When Marije and I arrived on the beach earlier today, most people were just taking it all in, enjoying the spectacle without a net being cast. But, Middle Cove would not be Middle Cove without fishermen, and soon they arrived, young and old, sometimes using nothing but their bare hands. Quite a sight!
