It took us about 2.5 hours to drive from St. John’s down to the reserve. Along the way we enjoyed some pretty breathtaking scenery, but as we progressed we went from clear sky to thick fog. When we finally arrived at the reserve, we could barely see 10 metres ahead of ourselves, so we weren’t too hopeful that we’d see much of anything (though we did see a Northern Harrier swoop past us in the parking lot!).
At the cabin we enjoyed a relaxing couple of days of board-games, kayaking and learning how to use the jet ski. A lot of fun.
Here are some more pictures of our weekend.
And two years ago? We visited the Newman Wine Vaults, a Provincial Historic Site and where Newman and Company brought their port across the Atlantic Ocean to age. They liked the unique quality of the port that it had after going to/being in Newfoundland. It's a crazy story!
