Visiting Naufrage Harbour

Focusing on one boat, I did this watercolour on-site. Streamlining the background permits me to speak of the place, while keeping the emphasis on the lobster boat. In the distance are homes and a restaurant, not yet open for the season and sheds for storing once the season is over. Of course, my favorite, the lighthouse catches the eye.

Un aspect de l’île du Prince Édouard est l’emploi saisonnier. La saison de pêche à l’homard ne dure que 2 mois. L’industrie de tourisme (en majorité)  s’étend de la mi juin à la fête du travail ou l’action de graces. La cultivation des champs, des pommes de terre et autres légumes débute au printemps ( mi- mai) et termine avec le gèle d’octobre. Ce quai se vide et le silence descend sur le coin pour l’hiver.

Visiting Naufrage during fishing season sees much activity, industry and commerce. It depends on access to the sea. Please read my last blog on the subject of the sand and the battle with nature in Naufrage . The down season paints a different picture. Many industries of PEI are seasonal in nature, requiring of its people a unique relisience and adaptability.
