The residents that live in these three communities enjoy these sights on a near daily basis. Visitors to the region can also enjoy the fishing activity, walking trails, vernacular architecture and the New Ferolle lighthouse, built in 1912. The lighthouse was operated by the Beaudoin family of New Ferolle for three generations, until the lighthouse became automated in June 1992.
The fishery is the mainstay of these communities, as is the case for most on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula.
The lobster traps, boats, fishing gear, personal stages, wharves and access to the bay are clear highlights of a hub of activity that exists from early May and into summer. I managed to capture a growler or small iceberg in this photo as well.
Our small rural fishing communities are beautiful and full of value and untapped potential. I encourage you on your trek up the Great Northern Peninsula to experience it for yourself.
