East Coast Trail - Fundraiser and Birthday Bash

Today we hid away the kayak gear for the day and took time out to support the East Coast Trail Association. Today was their annual fundraiser and 14th anniversary of their founding. What a day to celebrate!! Volunteers have done an incredible job not only on this section but all of the kms of trails around this part of Newfoundland. The ECTA organized a double decker bus early this am,drove us to Logy Bay and we hiked from the Ocean Sciences Centre to Quidi Vidi.
It happened to be a brilliant day - sun shining, no fog, no rain; so the event was really enjoyable. Despite two breaks to enjoy the scenery while sipping a coffee and numerous stops for photos, we made quite good time coming in around 3.5 hrs.
