Every winter we like to visit some of the wharfs in Prince Edward Island in the quiet of winter. Recently we visited French River which is the subject of the header of this blog.
The area is quiet this time of year. The inlet is frozen finally due to the colder temperatures in the last few weeks.
I take the photos of the wharf from the lookout above the area.
Beginning in April every year, boats are tied up at the wharf. Now some are high and dry behind the fishing shacks.
The slipway is frozen and the lift is tied in place, each waiting for the time when the fishers return with their boats for another season.
The fishing shacks are larger than many we see around the coast here.
Despite the large shacks, stacks of lobster pots line the wharf.
In another month or so, the wharf will be a hub of activity again as the fishers prepare their gear and return their boats to the water when the ice is gone.
It can’t happen soon enough.
