I was lucky enough to have grown up here, and have spent many a day on the bay on my Dad’s boat.
Unfortunately, my Dad has passed away,
My kids can still venture out on the water when we travel home to Corner Brook.
And they love being on the ocean.
Salt water is in their blood.
The magnificent “Blow-me-down” mountains
Sailors and fishermen alike just love the bay. (Captain James Cook did too in the 1700s. See my earlier blogs for details on his charting work. He named this Bay of Islands before he ventured further south to New Zealand.)
Woods Island – east end – where my Dad’s family grew up
Weebald, as it is known locally (or Guernsey’s Island)
Woods Island – harbour
Jigging for a fish – the recreational season is now open
A day on the bay does wonders for the soul!
