What a great week! Fishing, sunsets, whales and I can’t wait for the Blood Moon on the weekend!! I finally learned how make a loaf of bread without it falling in the middle…I have to thank my father in law for helping me with that!!!
And we had a bluejay party at the birdhouse! With a nice visit from a Northern Flicker.
But it’s the end of fishing and boating season. A sad time of year for us…that only means that winter is around the corner!! 😦 The sun is shining today but it’s very windy to say the least. The next few days are supposed to be very windy with lots of gusts so we won’t be out in the boat again this year. We did get a few great days on the water beforehand.
Fall arrived on Wednesday and it was absolutely gorgeous!! I can take many more of these days…it was breathtaking and nicer than most of our days during the summer!! Not a breath of air so it was the perfect day to go fishing again.
With this weather, we were loving our day on the water but then, all of a sudden I heard a sound I love…..the blow of a whale!! I dropped the fishing rod and grabbed the camera lickety split!! 🙂 One lone minke whale. It was an nice bonus to see a whale this late in the season. Newfoundland is one of the most spectacular whale watching places in the world with 22 species of whales, including the minke, sperm, pothead, blue, orca, and the world’s largest population of humpbacks.
It might look like I wasn’t too interested in the fishing but sometimes, if nothing is biting on the line, I have to entertain myself and my camera is always a happy distraction!! I didn’t realize how many jellyfish are in Newfoundland waters…all I know is that I wouldn’t want to fall in the ocean! There were hundreds of them.
With my camera session over with, it was time to focus on fishing again and when I put my line down I finally caught the big one!! I think you can tell that I’m pretty happy about that 🙂
Enjoy your weekend!! Loving this life around the bay! 🙂
