Sunday Worship

marylou-newfoundlandLast Sunday morning we did a three hour hike along the Skerwink Trail in Trinity East, Newfoundland. Our friend Simone had recommended this hike. skerwink-vistaShe did it last year and said it was spectacular. hiking-the-skerwinkMy 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.

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.
