Standing on the banks along the Pinware River Mouth in Pinware River Provincial Park in Southern Labrador, one can not see too far across the Strait of Belle Isle. The fog has closed in around the area and a large boulder surrounded by water is the only part of the scenery that is clearly visible.Some people find fog extremely fascinating and they like to sit and watch as the fog slowly lifts along the Pinware River Mouth. Others find fog banks mystical and magical while others consider the fog to be eerie.The weather in Southern Labrador can change very rapidly as there is a continuous flow of low and high pressure systems that move across the land, especially at the Pinware River Mouth. One minute you can be surrounded by clear sunny skies and then fog banks can move in and all you can see across the water is large boulders that rise out of the Pinware River.During the summer months in the Strait of Belle Isle and the other straits around Labrador, about sixty-five days out of a year are foggy. Other parts of Labrador along the coast receive about half that many days of fog while farther inland you will only come across about ten days of fog per year.Boaters out on these waters are not partial to the fog around the Pinware River Mouth, but tourists to Southern Labrador find it spectacular.Boulder in the Pinware River mouth shrouded in fog at the Pinware River Provincial Park along the Labrador Coastal Drive, Highway 510, Viking Trail, Trails to the Vikings, Strait of Belle Isle, Southern Labrador, Labrador, Canada.
