Otter slide in Small Point Cove

It’s always nice to see otters when you’re out on the coast, especially when they’re being playful. Here’s a scene I came upon five years ago when I was hiking the East Coast Trail above Spout Cove, one of the many scenic places on Stiles Cove Path: The otter itself was nowhere to be seen, but it was easy to see […]

East Coast Trail Guide, Version 1.4

This winter I’ve been putting a lot of work into the next big update of the East Coast Trail Guide, my book about Newfoundland’s amazing East Coast Trail.

Dawn on Witless Bay

Six years ago today I went out to see Venus and the crescent moon rise together over Witless Bay.

Moonlit icefall

With the town lights lighting up the incoming fog, it was quite a […]

Sun and snow on Stiles Cove Path

When the sun comes out in winter there is no way you can keep me inside. Outside is where I want to be: with a broad smile on my face I’ll take in the glorious winter scenery from any viewpoint along the coast, happily walking through miles of deep snow just to get there. Here are some photos from a beautiful […]
