Photographer's Note

aka "Going to go Fishing..."

I's the b'y that builds the boat
And I's the b'y that sails her
I's the b'y that catches the fish
And takes them home to Lizer.

More shots from my 2005 trip to Newfoundland.
The small port of Cox's Cove was bustling with activity. The local fishermen were getting their boats ready for another season. Each boat has its registration or fishing license clearly marked on the bow. The boats are lined up on the slips waiting to go fishing... Their colours against the blue water and sky were almost Mediterranean.

Cox's Cove is at the mouth of the Humber River.
In 1955 and in 1977 it experienced serious flooding.

PS "I's The B'y" (also I'se The Bye) is a traditional Newfoundland folk song/ballad.
