On of the best views you will get along this highway on southeastern Labrador, is out in the community of St. Lewis.
At the far end of the community as far as you can see is the Atlantic Ocean and other land areas.
It's was beautiful on this day in the picture with the sun sparkling off the ocean. They nickname this place iceberg alley as well, so keep a lookout. They'll be very easy to spot in the spring and early summer.
In Charlottetown one of the very first families to reside in the community where the Powell's.
They are also long time business people and in this picture you can see their local store.
Uncle Ben Powell a local resident is also an accomplished writer has has written a series of books on the history of the area and his experiences.
When you are in Charlottetown I recommend you buy a couple of his books, I am sure you'll enjoy his stories!
All of the communities in southeastern Labrador were once much more remote than they are today with the road. In any event these communities all have local clinics with a nurse.
Black Tickle, Cartwright, St. Lewis, Mary's Harbour, Port Hope Simpson and Charlottetown all have community clinics.
If for some reason you did need medical attention while you where in this area any of these clinics will be able to give you the same level of service.
For more serious incidents local residents are flown out on medavac flights to larger hospitals in Happy Valley - Goose Bay, St. Anthony and St. John's.
This is not a touristy tip but an important one!
There is one thing about living or visiting the communities along southeastern Labrador and that is the beautiful sun rise in the mornings.
The picture taken here is right from my grandparents house in Mary's Harbour. I remember a lot of morning waking up and enjoying this beautiful sun rise while my grandfather and I ate our breakfast.
Later in life I would then drag my ass down to the crab plant that you can see on the horizon and make some money :-)
Days like this are great to be out in boat!
Favorite thing: Like the sun rising they are exactly as nice setting. This picture was taken just before Port Hope Simpson and the sun is setting over the Alexis River.
