Cape Harrison, Labrador

A dangerous leeward coast in the days of sail. Even in the clearing weather the Northern Ranger was really rolling.

Love your grand-uncle anecdote. I can tell you, I'd be one of the grey-haired walking-aid ladies fighting to get close. There's such scarcity of men in these homes, and large concentrations of chattering lone females (of any age) are not my cup of tea.

It'd be a two-legged dishwasher even now. The gold would come off in a machine.

That's a choppy sea! Fabulous light on those waves though!

You caught the feeling of the northern, cold and icy ocean. It looks like it is getting ready to freeze.

You caught a spectacular scene there. Wouldn't like to be in there in my dinghy :)

Re starlings - they're something of a pest here, too. Flock the towns, eat the berries, cover sidewalks and cars in droppings, etc. Apart from all that, the flocks are a thing to watch (and listen to).

Looks VERY dangerous.

Did you ever read 'Set of the Sails' by Alan Villier? Great true story of the final days of the last tea-clippers racing round Cape Horn :-) Stirs the blood :-) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Villiers
