Sunday wonders - B

B is for Boats.  I have never seen so many boats as I did in Newfoundland.


Tied up on a foggy day...

 
Back in after a morning's work.  The large blue building is where the replica of the Matthew - John Cabot's ship - is housed.


Waiting for morning to get to work...


Posing for that art shot...


Sunny days make me forget how dangerous the sea can be...


Every home along the shore seems to have a boat...


This one has been beached for a very long time. Found on Saddle Island in Red Bay.


A shipwreck in Red Bay looms out of the fog.  This is the wreck of the Bernier which was grounded in 1966. 


There are small museums everywhere.  This boat now sleeps in the sun by the Women's Institute's museum in Labrador. The box-like part in the middle is the engine housing.  I had to ask.

Have you noticed that these are all working boats?  I can't remember seeing any pleasure boats at all as we travelled around.  Oh, maybe I saw some kayaks go out in a bay one morning.  But, those are tourists, right?

That's what happens when you go 30 minutes north of us to McClellanville-nearly all the boats are working boats...fishermen, shrimpers, etc. all live up there. It makes for some nice photos. Just like the ones you got!

Exquisite shots! Each one has so many stories connected to it.

I am truly enjoying the spectacular photography from your trip. When we decided on our trip this year, the question was should we go east or should we go west? I can clearly see that next year, we simply must go east.

So many different moods! These are great. Keep 'em coming as you sort through your stash, okay?
