Cartwright Ferry

29 July 2010 | Cartwright, Labrador, Canada
Richard
One of the Cartwright ferries. Cartwright used to be at the end of the road (which went to a ferry that went to the island of Newfoundland), and from here, one needed to take a ferry to Goose Bay to get to the rest of Canada. Recently, a new road was opened between Cartwright and Goose Bay.

We have been sitting out a gale in Cartwright. A noticeable thing in this pleasant town of 600 is that the phrase "Beautiful Day" is used like "Hello". The weather doesn't seem to have any effect on whether or not one should say "hello" or "beautiful day". Yesterday, in the driving wind and rain of the gale, walking past a person on the muddy road, our conversation went: "Beautiful Day?" "Beautiful Day"
