I don’t know if the ferry in the first photo is being used or not. It’s floating, but there is a lot of water in the bottom. I saw it on the other side of the wetland one day, but it might have been blown over there by a storm that passed through the area.
The boat in the second photo is sitting on concrete supports at the end of a wharf. Until recently you could walk out on it to take pictures, but now it’s roped off. The city is probably worried someone is going to go down through the old wood.
I’m not sure how people get on this small fishing boat. It’s not tied up at the dock. It’s anchored next to the breakwater and difficult to get to from land. Maybe someone drops the fisherperson off every morning in another boat.
I went out in boat with my father several times while I was in Canada last summer. He wanted to fish and I wanted to make some photographs. There were no fish in the bay on this morning but there were a few good photo opportunities. I made this picture while my father let his line down and jigged for cod. You can see the little waves made by the boat in the foreground. On the eastern side of Hall’s Bay is a hill called by my family (and possibly others) The Point. If you take hard right (mind the rocks) you end up in Goodyear’s Cove. If you keep going straight you eventually end up in Springdale. The Point is usually a good place to catch some fish, but it was too early in the season and we returned to West Bottom empty-handed.
