Bay Roberts Trail, Day 2

Bay Roberts Heritage Trail

Bay Roberts Heritage Trail, Newfoundland, August 2013

We returned to the Bay Roberts Heritage Trail/Mad Rock Trail in Newfoundland, Canada the next day, this time driving to the ocean and starting there.  The name Mad Rocks comes from the rocks offshore that have been particularly treacherous for ships.  Again, the beauty was intense. We stopped for long stretches and sat on the rocks taking in the ocean and fresh air.

We had no expectation of seeing whales in August, but we were fortunate to look out over the water and see many minutes of a whale surfacing and submerging as it travelled alongside the rocks.  This was a terrific experience even though I cannot identify the whale(s) we saw that day.
