Boats, Grates Cove

Today's photos show a dozen or more boats moored in Grates Cove Harbour. Yesterday's photos showed the wharf with several small boats tied up to it. Fishermen use the smaller boats to get to the larger ones shown in the photos.

The mouth of the harbour opens into the cold, North Atlantic ocean and the winds probably get pretty fierce there. It may be best to moor the boats away from the wharf because of the waves that break over the wharf which is located at the bottom of the harbour.

The second photo was taken from the high cliffs on the north side of the harbour. You will also notice the lack of trees on the shoreline. Apparently, there used to be trees there, but they were destroyed in a forest fire many years ago.

Feel free to view 20 photos on my Grates Cove Gallery at:

As well, you can view a 9 minutes slide show of Grates Cove created by a member of my Photo of the Day list on You Tube:
