The "A Spring in your Step" wraps up and "Iceberg Festival" is next

    The "Spring in your Step" Festival ended on Sunday, June 12 under sunny skies and with many people taking in the Cedar Cove hike. Over 20 people walked from Little Port to Cedar Cove and had a perfect day for walk. The festival started with an introduction to geocaching and interpretative walk at scenic Bartlett's Point on Thursday evening, June 9th.  We even saw a couple of minke whales just off shore which was a first for us--geocaching and whales! The next day was rainy so we all hikes were canceled but in the evening Trent McClellan had a packed crowd at the Bar room in stitches with his comedy show about growing up in Corner Brook. Saturday, June 11 we did the hike to the Man in the Mountain and we had fine views of the Humber Valley from the ridge tops above. We even saw an eagle being pursued by 2 crows, perhaps the eagle got too close to their nest. Sunday was a perfect hiking day with clear skies and a moderate wind and Cedar Cove proved to be the place to be on this late spring day.

     The last of the spring festivals is the Iceberg Festival in the St. Anthony area. It has much to recommend it and we have attended a couple of times in the past. We have usually been able to see whales and icebergs and this is the only place we have had that experience in Newfoundland!  Here is the schedule for the next several days. Also see:
