Bay Roberts Sunset

This past summer I dropped Cory off at a gaming shop in Bay Roberts a few different Fridays and went hiking. As fall came on that meant that the sun was setting shortly after I hit the trail.

Lovely trail from Mad Rock Cafe to French Cove

These pictures are from my last Friday Night Hike.  The light was fading even as I was getting out of the car, so I had to squelch the urge to look for the last of the season's blueberries and hustle straight out to the views.

I waded right out into the middle of the field of asters and snapped a few photos.  I only had my iPhone with me, which doesn't perform as well in low light or for landscapes, but made do with what I had.

 I sent the pictures to my mom as I wandered around, and then found a place to leave one of my painted rocks for the next visitor to find.

There was a Harvest Moon that night, but the iPhone wasn't up to the challenge.  Still, quite a sight as I stood in the old graveyard in French Cove and watched the light play on the water.

Of course that meant walking back in the dark, but I took my time and was back to the car in under 20 minutes.  I texted with my cousins on the way back, telling them if I went missing I was out at Mad Rock and to send a rescue team.  They probably still don't know what to make of my recklessness, but that's okay, they're not the only ones!
