It is busy and popular site which makes it hard to capture a great photo without a million people in a background BUT the views are so worth it. Don't miss this site, it's great and beautiful.

We went up to the cape later in the afternoon and it was foggy as it often is in Nfld. The views off the cliffs are a little intimidating at dusk but nevertheless extremely exciting.

Went to the lighthouse as recommended by Keith and Maureen at Puffins Landind B&B who told us the whales were close by. We were not disappointed!
