Cape Anguille Lighthouse
The last evening in Newfoundland was windy so what better place to go than a lighthouse! Cape Anguille is on the southwest corner of the island. The light no longer functions as such, but one can stay in the buildings which have been converted into a small inn.
The winds which began early in the afternoon continued to build to the point where it was actually difficult to remain standing. The swell rolling in was being blown back out to sea by the east wind creating a spectacular sight in the evening sun.
This kayaker could look, but like the rest of us he wasn't prepared to launch into a sea like this one from the cobble beach below - or any beach, in fact! For all of us, it was a 'look, but don't touch' vista!
Returning back down the road towards Codroy, we pulled into this little restaurant. With only about 6 tables, the place was busy. The wait was worth it. We feasted on massive fillets of halibut, lightly panned fried with cold glasses of white wine. A lovely ending to my Newfoundland holiday!
