Burin Peninsula 2

Little Harbour East






Harbour Mille







Burin Peninsula 2
June 25, 2015

Despite the weather, I headed towards Harbour Mille, another 11 km (7 mi). Along the way I made a few photos of Little Harbour East, another tiny town in Fortune Bay on the Burin Peninsula. The first 5 photos with nice reflections in the calm water is from there.



Harbour Mille is the last town on that road and worth the drive. It is a very scenic community with a protected harbour, boats, colourful houses and fishing stages.

Bay L'Argent




















Bay L'Argent
June 25, 2015

I walked around the harbour in Bay L'Argent making photos of the fishing stages and boats. The Northern Seal, a large boat was getting ready to leave the dock. One of the crew said that it was a passenger boat that took people from Bay L'Argent to Rencontre East on the Connaigre Penninsula. When I get back to Bay'Largent, I may take the ferry to Renconre East because there are no roads to that community and it would be interesting to make photos there as well!

Re: Bay L'Argent.. my first visit was my only one. I arrived there one day many moons ago and the high school was burning. What a day..too much smoke, fire and excitement to see anything nor to take photos. School burned to the ground.

Burin Peninsula

Mortier






Bay L'Argent











Burin Peninsula

June 25, 2015

It was raining when I arrived in Mortier on the Burin Peninsula. I photographed this community last summer on a beautiful, clear day. This time I barely had time to get out of the car to make photos before getting wet so I only have a few.

The next community I photographed on this trip was Bay L'Argent, a beautiful little community 11 km off the Burin Peninsula Highway. If you are ever in this area, it is definitely worth the time to visit the three towns on this side road. Though it was foggy, I could tell that the mountains were beautiful. I will have to make another trip down there on a clear day!!

The first six photos show the protected harbour in Mortier, and the others were taken in Bay L'Argent.
