Fisherman's Reserve.....A Visit

Last evening we drove down the shore to Seaforth which is about 10 km. from our house.
In Seaforth there is a fishing village that is out on a tiny strip of land jutting out
into the ocean. It is called 'Fisherman's Reserve'.
We headed down and came to a very quaint and typical fishing village.

It was full of small houses and shacks, lobster traps, boats of course and a few cars.

We saw a dog and a cat wondering around but mostly it seemed deserted
because there wasn't a human in sight.

I am pretty certain that this 'village' is only inhabited seasonally.....
that is when it is lobster season on the shore or specific species of fish
are 'running' and fishing them is permitted.......with a license of course.

It seemed like a ghost town of sorts in that it was rough and looked very neglected.

At least most of it did. But that is the point......a fishing village, at least in these parts, is not a
show-piece but a place utilized to do a very difficult

We were there at dusk and this afforded some great light while getting a few photos.

Like in most coastal communities around the world, one can find these rustic little villages
scattered along the shores.

And Nova Scotia is no exception since it is almost completely surrounding by water.
OK class, what do you call a body of land that is almost completely surrounded by water?
Sorry, I just couldn't help myself!! lol It's in me blood!!
