Take your binoculars...actually scratch that as they have thought of everything and they are found provided in your room. You will need them to watch the whales if you are visiting in July when the caplin run. We had a magical hike on the Skerwink Trail, started out in the fog and could hear the exhale of the whales blowholes through the mist...it lifted, the sun came out and we sat on the cliff watching them for hours. The next turn on the hike served us up an iceberg and we couldn't have asked for anything more! The next day we took in the small town of Trinity, one of the most historical towns in Nfld. so a must walkabout, the grave stones in the cemetary date back to 1700's.
Also the short drive up to Bonavista is a must where the cape showcases the provinces oldest lighthouse and there are lots of whales playing up there too. Stop on the way to watch puffins. Make your way down to Amherst Cove the Bonvista Social Club and have lunch or dinner by the sea with a great view and the best rubarb lemonade and moose burgers around. Fun Fact-The fellow who started this restaurant made all the furniture that is in the rooms at the Fishers Loft.
Back to the Fishers Loft- quaint, cozy, clean, comfortable, fantastic food, friendly staff, great scenery and just a real authenitc taste of what Newfoundland has to offer.
