Bonfire at Middle Cove Beach

Many members of the group attended a bonfire (lots of hotdogs and s’mores) on Middle Cove beach yesterday evening. This was an event organized by the MUN Chemistry Graduate Student Society and hosted by our own Jen Murphy. Well done Jen on organizing such a fun event. The weather was perfect ~20 degrees and breathtaking waves were crashing on the beach and rocks due to the full moon. Newfoundland is such a beautiful place to live.
