We had some beautiful, warm weather the past couple of days. It turned out to be great weather for getting a hike in on the East Coast Trail.
A lazy, thin fog drifted just a few meters above ours heads at this point. It was warm, bright, and a gentle sea breeze blew up from the cliffs to our left as we made our way from Logy Bay to Quidi Vidi. Many of the cliffs we walked along were made up of half-billion year old variations of sandstone srata, bent and tilted over the millennia. The nine kilometre route took us close to four hours, with an hour halfway through set aside for moose sausages and beans for lunch. All in all it was a great trek, minus the horrific sunburn I ended up with (it was a long winter, okay). If you come to St. John’s, make sure to plan for a relaxed day where you venture onto the East Coast Trail. You won’t regret it (but bring sunscreen).
It’s Mother’s Day today, and I wanted to make a shout out to all the mother’s out there. We are all so lucky to have you in our world, and there’s nothing more important than family. If you can’t be with your mom today, call her right now. If you are, remember to spend time with her, hug her close and remind her how special she is and how thankful you are for everything she does. I know I did.
Have a great week!
