Our 2016 Cruise took us to most areas of Placentia Bay - Long Island, Merasheen Island, a good portion of the Western side of the Bay, and even up to St. Pierre. All in all we stayed in 30 different communities (active and resettled) around the bay and we still have lots of places to visit. It has been memorable experience sailing in the cold fog, rain and wind. Probably more memorable for Paul and Brenda since I have a pilothouse!!!
Visiting these remote resettled communities, we spoke and listened to the fisher men and women, and seasonal inhabitants; crawled around some of the houses and fishing stages; and hiked many trails photographing the uniqueness of our surroundings hoping to capture an image accurately that reflects the beauty, the spirit, and,yes, the loneliness of the location. We left the harbours, houses, and stages like we had entered them - untouched but with deeper understanding of this Far Greater Bay.
