Where Once They Stood


The sheds, the wood piles and the catamaran are all typical signs of life around the bays and coves of Newfoundland. One of the necessities of life in our harsh climate involved the gathering of wood as fuel to heat our homes. In winter the wood was cut down and carried home on a horse drawn sleigh called a catamaran. The logs were cut and stored in nest piles for future use.
