Fogo Island

Last weekend we found ourselves heading to Fogo Island - which was actually the first time I have made the trip. The kayaks were thrown on the Jeep but there were a few times when the winds and sea state left over from Katia, were too high to get out on the water, so we spent time hiking around all the trails. We missed art exhibits, but found some great looking studios. These were various locations where artists could walk in and do their work inspired by the environment; in a relatively undisturbed location. We stayed in Seldom and spent time in Deep Bay, Fogo, Barr'd Islands, Joe Batts Arm and Tilting - then made a dash over to Twillingate. In Twillingate, we had the good luck to find the Auk Island Winery open, so ended up buying a case of wine supposedly for Christmas season - but it may be not last till then. On our day in Twillingate the wind and weather kept the Iceberg Quest off the water - so we drove to Crow Head and found icebergs very close to shore. In fact they were everywhere - on the horizon we could see one of the Petermann Islands.
