Flowers Cove Sunrise
21 July 2017
We anchored in small, snug, Flowers Cove, near the Strait of Belle Isle to sit out some rain and wind.
The prevailing winds this time of year are from the southwest. As they approach the Strait of Belle Isle, they are funneled by the coasts of Quebec & Labrador on one side, and Newfoundland on the other. It is much nicer to sit out the stronger winds and rain in port.
When the rain stopped and the wind lessened, we left. The picture was taken at sunrise, as we were leaving.
