Whale Watching in New Brunswick; A Whale of a Tale

“Wow!” was the collective expression of wonderment as the giant leviathan crashed back into the ocean like a mammalian meteorite from inner space, displacing thousands of litres of water, less than 100 metres from our viewpoint.

Newfoundland; An Adventurous Destination

Walking on an ancient sea floor in Newfoundland, once tugged by the wildly different tidal forces which effected the planet over 600 million years ago, it felt necessary to tread carefully.

‘Autumn’ in The Yukon Wilderness

Strictly speaking this isn’t autumn, it was late August and early September, but while most of the northern hemisphere is only just packing away swimming costumes at the end of summer, The Yukon is already showing plenty of fall colour. It was noticeable soon after leaving Whitehorse, but the further north I travelled the more visible autumn became. The mountains …
