Signal Hill and Cuckold's Cove Trail

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, 7 degrees and sunny with lovely breeze.  Hubby and I joined my niece and her husband for a late morning hike.  We decided to do a portion of the East Coast Trail, so we drove right downtown, to Signal Hill, and took the Cuckold's Cove Trail. 

Take a look.......

This was my first time doing this portion of the trail.  It was so nice to get out in the fresh air and sunshine and enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Hope you all have a great week.



  1. What a beautiful spot for a hike. It looks so rugged and enticing... and so rich with history, to boot!

  2. I sure would like to hike there and see those sights for myself.
    In answer to the comment on my blog.
    I think the pomegranate will be tasty but it really is such a pain to peal..fingers and everything gets stained.

  3. My legs are screaming just looking at those stairs, but the scenery is gorgeous!

  4. A grand day in a wonderful place.

  5. The water looks beautiful. Also the red berries in the last picture. How great to be able to go on trails like this and enjoy open space, nature and water.

  6. Hi Kathleen,
    I just came across your blog and have had a lot of enjoyment reading it. You have really captured a piece of Newfoundland in so many ways. My grandparents were from NFLD and my great grandfather was a telegraph linesman foreman and helped Marconi set up his original tower on Signal Hill. I have only had the opportunity to visit NFLD once so far and it was amazing. I also love to take beautiful photos of nature around me and art. Are you self-taught on the camera, or did you take a course?

  7. Thank you Cynthia, so glad you enjoyed it! I am self taught on the camera, but wish I knew more about the technical aspect of it.

  8. I have to say it..... Been there, done that!!! I've hiked that trail quite a few times, and I love it. I love the scenery, the rocks, the cliffs, the sea. I spent my first 20 years living by the sea (in UK not NFLD) so I love to visit the rocky coast. Makes me feel at home. I always add a stone to the cairn at Ladies Lookout. Ensures I'll be back again one day.
    Last time I was there I saw whales in Cuckold's Cove.

  9. That is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!! My goodness you have that place nearby to see? I have a love for the sea is magical, there is something like a spiritual connection for me. Thanks for sharing this post!

  10. I live in a beautiful town--right on the ocean, just like that!!
    It is spellbinding.
    I take the longer way to or from work at least twice a week, just to be able to look out over the Atlantic Ocean. I have posted several photos here on my blog over the past year.

    1. I am going to look back at your photos again Kathleen! It's indescribable the feeling that comes from the ocean.
