Coastal exploration of Spout Path

Back in August 2011, I went on a zodiac tour of the cliffs below Spout Path, it was great! After arriving at O’Brien’s in Bay Bulls all the passengers were sized up by the captain and fitted with bright orange safety suits, which felt very hot on this blue-sky summer’s day.

This was our very last outing on the water and it had everything you […]
