Journey Through Little Passage

We were so fortunate to have Rodney Andrews, local and passionate resident of Gaultois, take the four of us (Fran, Nettie, Susie and Greg) in his boat along Little Passage – a narrow body of water separating Long Island (on which the township of Gaultois is located) from the mainland. Just before sunset we left Hermitage Bay and journeyed through Little Passage to Raymond’s Point in the Bay d’Espoir fjord. What a magical trip through coves with sunken boats, past waterfalls and rocky outcrops full of imagined carved faces – oh if these rock walls could speak… This sheltered passageway even has its own archeological site with evidence of Maritime Archaic, Paleo-Eskimo and recent Indian campsite.

Certainly was a privilege to be guided through these places with Rodney’s stories to illustrate and a boat ride that is etched in our memories forever – thank you Rodney for such generous sharing.
