More explorations on Grand Manan Island

Early morning thunderstorms promoted a late sleep in and lazy breakfast. Laundry and time on our computers filled the rest of the morning as the skies cleared. Well, not actually, as fog hung around all day.

After lunch we took haRVy out to explore more of the island. We drove to the west side to see Dark Harbor, an apparent haven for the aforementioned dulse harvesting. The shoreline of the nearly fully enclosed bay was lined with locally designed and built skiffs. A tall natural breakwater, just visible in the distance was strewn with huge driftwood logs and what appeared to be occupied shacks. Can’t imagine what it is like to be out there when the waves are tossing all that stuff around and near your house. As the fog rolled in and out we snapped many photos.

We then drove to the southernmost tip to Southern Cross Light where we took a hike and more foggy photos.

Back to camp for a laid back quiet evening. Al was going to take me out to dinner, but the one nice place we wanted to go was already fully booked so we made reservations for tomorrow night when we will celebrate my birthday a little early.

Thunderstorms in morning. Fog all day. Temps in 60’s and 70’s. 35 miles


  1. Really like this set of images.great Blog. Interesting we refer to our Westy as Harvy as well. Great minds think alike. I’ve added a link to your blog on my site. Hope you don’t mind. Happy trails. David G.
