Canadian Maritime Provinces: Launching

 

What fun exploring the small coves and fishing villages with their moored fishing boats on Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. The lobster boats were waiting to be loaded with the traps, buoys, ropes and other equipment for the beginning of lobster fishing season in November. The boats that were used to fish for summer catches were being taken out of the water for protection from the winter storms. But everywhere there were boats, with even some pleasure boats in the bays of more heavily populated areas.

This week’s prompt by The Daily Post is “launch.”  What a perfect opportunity to share my photos from the Canadian Maritime Provinces of an environment where the launching of fishing boats at high tide is a way of life.
