No Denying Newfoundland!Posted: August 27, 2013 Filed under: Animal Life, Mineral World, Newfoundland, Water | Tags: Canada, hike, Mad Rock, minke whales, Newfoundland, No Denial Path, ocean, Rocks, signs, whales 2 Comments
I’ve just returned from nearly three weeks in beautiful Newfoundland. Many posts to come from the east and west of the island. This hike near Mad Rock was terrific. Views of the ocean, dramatic rocks and rolling terrain. We loved the signs we encountered, particularly this one. It was near here, on rocks by the ocean, that we saw whales nearby. Our best guess is that they were minke whales.

Here’s another bird, a more common mallard. Still, she was delightful to see earlier this summer on the Cyprus Lake Trail in Bruce Peninsula National Park. I see many mallards in the city and enjoyed seeing their countryside relative.
