More Newfoundland

Here are a few photos from the past week of exploring the Newfoundland coast. The scenery has been fantastic and the weather.... well, let's just say that it's classic coastal conditions (fog, rain!). I've been eating fresh seafood daily, in fact eating some as I write this! I'm tired and weary from a very rough boat tour this afternoon to see puffins and whales (too tough to photograph), so I won't write much now.

    love the photos, saw a tv program on the ice breaker ship that accompanies the ferry, so I looked up the area on google as know nothing of the area. Would love to visit if got the chance, but for now can look at the lovely photos. From Sue Fareham England.

    Love those shots of cape race, I used to work at the lighthouse as tour guide for years, and my uncle is still a lighthouse keeper there. im from portugal cove south, you had to pass through there to get to the lighthouse. my absolute favorite place in the world
