Photo: General Store Foggy Battle Harbour Night

As night settles in around Battle Harbour in Southern Labrador, the area becomes very foggy but the golden glow from the General Store can still be easily seen by visitors to the island.

A foggy night is not uncommon around Battle Harbour in Southern Labrador as the warm summer weather can create a thick fog bank, especially during the night and early morning hours. The General Store is a historic building which is often used by many of the visitors to Battle Harbour, as the store is stocked with supplies needed by daytime guests, but more so by people using the accommodations available on the island. In front of the General Store, illuminated at night by the golden colored lights, a stack of logs leaning against each other in a teepee formation stand in the dried grass.

Battle Harbour is a peaceful setting where history is told, but it is only accessible by ferry which departs from Mary's Harbour in Labrador. The ferry leaves Mary's Harbour twice daily for the one hour trip across which can be very exciting in itself if the season is right as whales, dolphins, seals, seabirds and icebergs can be viewed.

Once you reach Battle Harbour, an entirely different world exists where people can tour around the historic fishing village and view the life of the 18th, 19th and 20th century Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Historic structures, such as the General Store, walkways, artifacts and work areas have all been restored over the years to their original condition.
