Scallop Lips and Little Passage

 

What an incredible experience to go boating along Little Passage – north side of Long Island on the southern coast of Newfoundland with a group of licensed scallop fisher people. Thanks to Roland and Barbara for sharing their skills and craft. And to Rodney and Christine for the ride-truly awesome!
