Marije and I enjoyed a fun day outside today!

First we hopped on a boat tour in Bay Bulls, they showed us Spout Path, a trail I’ve hiked dozens of times so it was great showing Marije where I go when I’m off to see the Spout. Here are a few images:

This is the Bull Head Light, you can see some hikers to the left of it, and a big shallow sea cave below:

The ferns along the trail are starting to change colour, turning yellow and orange:

This is the Chaver, a big gash in the cliffs, when you approach it from the trail you have to climb up and around it:

Next up, is perhaps the most spectacular sea stack on the east coast, it stands free from the other cliffs but that’s a bit hard to see from this angle, in this case you can see it better from the trail:

This is the Spout, it wasn’t very active today because of the calm sea, still it delighted the passengers on the boat:

And this is in Bay Bulls again, after the long trip back south:

After the boat trip we drove down to Ferryland where we had reserved a picnic at the lighthouse:

The food was delicious, and the setting gorgeous, as you can see.
