Yesterday and Today

November is unpredictable. Beautiful sunny Saturday did not have any sign of so dramatic changes. However, Sunday morning surprised us by its white duvet.

Colours of Newfoundland – Petty Harbour

Petty Harbour is a small fisherman town. It looks like a fairy tale toy. Under the summer Newfoundland sun the town is colourful and festive. Life here is slow and leisurely. After the city rush you find rest and relax here.

November Garden

Next week we expect first snow of the year. However some of the flowers do not give up and still blooming. Farewell Roses in the Garden still send the hope!

Battery, St. John’s

Coming to the end of the North Head Trail you find yourself in the Battery. Here all the streets are broken and follow the coast line of the bay. The colorful houses and lush vegetation create a fabulous mood. Harsh rocky landscapes turn into friendly and welcoming pictures.

Signal Hill – North Head Trail

The North Head Trail is Signal Hill’s most popular and most difficult hiking trail. This 1.7 km trail takes approximately 90 mins and descends almost 500 feet. Hikers connect with the trail from Signal Hill’s top parking lot. From there they descend down boardwalk stairs, follow a footpath to North Head at the entrance to the St. John’s Harbour, & hike along the narrows to Lower Battery Road.

October Evening

Every sunny day in October is a gift. Days are shorter and cooler. Evenings are fresh and crispy. Beautiful Autumn is coming to the end. Who knows, perhaps November will surprise us and bring the nice weather too.







Ivy geranium. The only flowers in the garden still blooming.

Mantis

It is not wide spread insects in our area but sometimes there is a chance to meet it and make a picture. They are good photo models because staying still for a long time.


Colourful October

There is a very short period of time between hot summer and cool autumn when all the trees and bushes change their green wear to colourful duvet. It looks gorgeous under the warm autumn sun.

Manuels River Trail

Perhaps the easiest hiking trail around St. John’s we found was the Manuels River Trail. It is beautiful and picturesque way along the river. Mostly it is covered by the trees and people can feel comfortable in the shade.
