Last Sunday morning we did a three hour hike along the Skerwink Trail in Trinity East, Newfoundland. Our friend Simone had recommended this hike. She did it last year and said it was spectacular. My goodness was she ever right!
This dog started tagging along as we began the trail and walked most of the way with us. He kept trying to take away Dave’s walking stick.
Can you see the eagle on top of the tallest rock?
Dave managed to photograph it
Dave also got this shot of a bird on a cliff
Our dog friend desperately wanted to get to the bird but it flew off before he reached it.
Some parts of the trail were lined with rocks.
Can you spot Dave on the cliff?
There were so many beautiful spots along the trail. You couldn’t photograph them all.
There was a lone pine up on one cliff.
These bare birches have a natural beauty all their own.
Of course my sociable husband made friends along the trail including this couple who run a bed and breakfast in Norris Point Newfoundland
and this couple from Calgary. The man used to play fast pitch ball and so he and Dave chatted about the good old days of the sport.
The trail is very well maintained by a local group and they just ask you to put something in a donation box at the end of the hike to help with the costs of upkeep.
