Myself and Natalie decided to head up to Fogo for the long weekend – Road Trip! We knew there were some nice hiking trails around a few of the community’s, and that the northern part of island was mostly barren (the island is about 100 km around)… we also knew of the beautiful Fogo Island Inn in Joe Batt’s Arm, and of the interesting – architecturally – art studios/residences in Deep Bay, Fogo, Shoal Bay, Joe Batt’s Arm, and Tilting. 417 more words
