Day Four- Brake's Cove and Cox's Cove
June 8th, 2017
Brake's Cove was a fishing community of approx. 60
families that was relocated by the NFDL Gov't because of the difficulty of
providing proper services ie road access, electricity, schools, etc.
After the resettlement many families retained their homes and now utlize them as summer cottages.
One of our passengers, Pat from London, Ontario, brought his bagpipes and piped us onshore at Cox's Cove.
We all made our way to the Community Hall where we were
entertained by ....

We say good-bye and good night to a great time at Cox's Cove.
