They stand quiet and deserted today, each a unique expression of the owner. You can imagine the activity around these fishing shacks during the fishing season. Early morning, fishers prepare for the work day, then tidy up in the evening. They talk about the cost of fuel, lobster prices, sea conditions and the day's catch.
This time of year however, some shacks are inaccessible.
Others are cheerful colours,
such as this yellow one which matches the sunny day.
Lofts maximize space in a few of the fishing shacks,
though these haven't been used recently.
One decorative shack is covered with colourful buoys
and a lovely weathervane on the roof.
Another has a satellite dish,
while others cannot be accessed until the lobster traps are moved away from the doors.
Bigger shacks appear to have two rooms.
Rows of fishing shacks dot the coastline of the fishing communities of Prince Edward Island. They are testament to the history, culture and traditions of the people who build and use them.
