Newfoundland, The Killick coast

bearchel

A killick is a homemade anchor fashioned from young and pliable tree stems that are lashed around a heavy stone.  These were made using material at hand, symbolizing traditional resourcefulness.  This coast’s long fishing history dates back to the 1500’s, when French, English and Portuguese fished off Conception Bay’s rocky beaches.

Today, this shore is St. John’s seaside playground.
