Sea Kayaking

We went sea kayaking in Cape Broyle today!  That was fun!  We didn't get to see any whales but we got to see and touch sea urchins - and even eat one!  Did you know that sea urchins don't have a brain or lungs or anything else for that matter?

The guide used a knife and cut it up for everyone to taste.  She said it would taste like a fruit - and it sorta tasted like cantaloup or mango - but I thought it tasted like mussels - yuck! Raw sea urchin - who would ever think I'd eat that?!

We kayaked for 2 hours.  We went between rocks making sure we didn't get caught on the rocks of death.  The swells were getting quite big for us beginner kayakers - 3 and 4 feet!

 We then arrived at insanity cliff (213 feet high cliffs) where a boat was waiting to get us and take us back to the dock.  Great sunny day!

After our adventure kayaking, we went to Ferryland.  There is a lighthouse there.  It's at the end of a cove so you could see whales.  We think we saw minkes but not 100% sure.  I took pictures of the lighthouse - will add them later.

We are now off to St.John's haunted walk.
