15 July 2011 | Black Tickle, Labrador
The harbor of Black Tickle. Issuma's masts are visible to the left of the red fishing boat. A melting iceberg is in the background.
We spent a pleasant day in Black Tickle, resting, looking around, talking to people, and refilling the airtime on the satellite phone (this actually took most of the day). Black Tickle has a population of about 200 people, a crab processing plant and several fishing boats that operate out of the harbor. There are no roads to the island Black Tickle is located on...the ferry comes weekly.
From Black Tickle, we sailed north northeast.
