Located next to the Left Bank Club in Bali, the Bali Yacht Wharf officially opened on 25 September 2005, and is the first of its kind in Taiwan. Occupying an area of 2,300 pings, the wharf will be combined with the Left Bank Club, the Suibizai Park and the Shisanhang Museum of Archeology to form the culture-based Bali Left Bank Cultural Belt.

 

As Taiwan's first wharf tailored for yachting, it is an ideal training venue for base-level yachters and a spot for displaying local features, thus promoting the yachting sport of New Taipei City, the water sports of Taiwan, and the new local features.

I'm still working on my Outra banda (the other side of the river Tejo, facing Lisboa) photo book. So it's time for some some shots taken from east to west, from Barreiro to Seixal, Cacillhas, Trafaria and Caparica.

 

Shown here are some coastal fishery ships on a small Trafaria maintenance wharf. And ofcourse the landmark grain elevators of Silipor, the western megastructure that deleniates one of the places where greater Lisboa fades away into it natural surroundings.

Some time ago I posted the eastern one, the big gantry crane of the former Lisnave Margueira wharf here.

 

The Trafaria terminal of Silopor ( Empresa de Silos Portuarios SA) handles various types of agribulk products. Its facilities accommodate grains and non-grain food and feed ingredients that come in European-originated small coasters or atlantic sea-going vessels. The company considers the terminal to be one of the the most modern deepwater terminal in the Mediterranean and Western Europe, ."it is technologically equipped not only to serve the domestic market, but also to carry out high discharge and loading operations, indispensable to the international transhipment of cereals." here.

  

This is number 147 of the the Lisboa & outra banda album.

 

While enjoying the usual amazing sunset (next photo) at one of my favorites spots the other evening, I turned around and caught my shadow looming large on the door of the abandoned smoke house on the beach.

 

It's interesting that I've been coming to this deserted cove for years to enjoy the end of day and have rarely seen another person. A stretch of ocean front like this would be very prime real estate in most parts of North America. Not so in Nova Scotia or Newfoundland. After the inshore fishery collapsed, many shorelines are dotted with deserted flakes, wharves and fish plants like this one....shadows and ghosts of a once proud and thriving industry.

Thanks for the Explore! This evening marked my 1 month wedding anniversary, but unfortunately my photog wife was away on business! The sun hadn't been seen for 3 days when the fog started to lift and catch amazing colour from horizon to horizon. Some locals are on what remains of our wharf splitting their fish after an evening on the recreational cod fishery.

To me there is still a certain dignity that is exuded from this structure. I have a great deal of respect for it and of what it stands for. The traditional "stage" was the center of work in the inshore fishery once the fish came ashore. It would be interesting to listen to this old structure (in Goose Cove on the Northern Peninsula) talk if it could tell stories of by-gone years.

The Hundred Islands National Park (Pangasinan: Kapulo-puloan or Taytay-Bakes) is a national park in the Republic of the Philippines. The protected area is located in the city of Alaminos, in the province of Pangasinan in northern Philippines. The islands, totaling 124 at low tide and 123 at high tide, are scattered in Lingayen Gulf covering an area of 16.76 square kilometres (6.47 sq mi). Only three of them have been developed for tourism: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island. The Lucap wharf in Alaminos, the entrance to the National Park, is about 240 kilometres (150 mi) north of Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

   

The national park was created by Presidential Proclamation No. 667, covering an area of 16.76 square kilometres (6.47 sq mi) and signed by President Manuel L. Quezon on January 18, 1940, for the benefit and enjoyment of the people of the Philippines and known as the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP). The Republic Act No. 3655 signed on June 22, 1962, created the Hundred Islands Conservation and Development Authority (HICDA), for the conservation, development and management of HINP. The park including Lucap Bay was transferred from HICDA to the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) by virtue of Section 35 of Presidential Decree No. 564

   

On April 27, 1982 under Proclamation No. 2183, the national park including Lucap Bay and its foreshore areas, beginning from Sitio Telbang to the east to Sitio Recudo to the west, were declared as a Tourist Zone and Marine Reserve under the control and administration of the PTA. Subsequently under the Presidential Proclamation No. 2237 enacted on November 6, 1982, the parcels of land reserve for the Marine Fisheries Multi-Purpose Farm (created under Proclamation No. 1282 of June 21, 1974) were withdrawn and were also placed under the control and supervision of the Tourism Authority for development purposes

 

The Executive Order No. 436 signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on June 21, 2005 transferred the administration, management, maintenance and operation of the whole Hundred Islands National Park (HINP), including all the activities, facilities and improvements thereafter, from the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) to the city government of Alaminos, Pangasinan in pursuit of Republic Act No. 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, which encouraged the transfer of power and authority from the national government to local government units, in line with the government’s devolution program mandated by the Constitution.

Sjøhus, (sea houses, litterally translated) are industrial buildings from the times when boats were the only efficient way of transport. These cladded, timber frame buildings were used for all kinds of purposes connected to trade and fisheries on the Norwegian coast. The typical protruding part of the gable (vindehus) is protecting the hoist mechanism. Herring (sild) fisheries were so important for the earlier economic growth on the western coast it was the obvious choice for an advert on the wall.

New style of traps on the left and a old wooden trap on the right. Both types are still used in the lobster fishery today.

 

NOTE: I found out when I went on a drive this weekend. The metal traps are better and used in cold wether when there can be icing etc., they hold up better. Wooden ones are used in the warmer weather parts of the year.

This is one of innumerable snapshots, photos and images that have been taken by so many people at the extremely popular Peggy's Cove site in south western Nova Scotia. It is a tranquil, natural inlet located along the shoreline of St. Margaret's Bay. It has been somewhat minimally altered over time, especially at its entrance (to add protection from high surf and erosion). Notwithstanding the changes along its perimeter, it still retains much of its cultural and historic legacy and attraction. It is truly amazing how so many photographers and painters interpret and portray it. The cove shows many different facets throughout the day, during changes in time, light, tides, weather and seasons. Visitors and locals keep coming back over-and-over again. There are people that come to Peggy's during virtually ever day of the year. It is extremely popular and valuable to tourism and local businesses. There continues to be a small and active inshore fishery being carried out from the wharves, docks and moorings of Peggy's Cove.

King Edward Point (also known as KEP ) is the capital of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands with port facilities (wharf) on the northeastern coast of the island of South Georgia. It is sometimes confusedly referred to as Grytviken, which is the site of the disused whaling station, nearby at the head of King Edward Cove. Since 1909, KEP has been the residence of a British Magistrate administering the island. A series of civilian Marine Officers was appointed to carry out customs and fisheries duties for the South Georgia Government from 1991, and were billeted with the small garrison.

 

On 22 March 2001, the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) reopened the station on behalf of the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (GSGSSI). Most of the old, dilapidated (and arguably historic) buildings were destroyed to make way for new ones, with the exception of Discovery House (1925) and the Gaol (1912).

 

Grytviken (Swedish for "the Pot Bay") is a settlement named in 1902 by the Swedish surveyor Johan Gunnar Andersson who found old English try pots used to render seal oil at the site. It is the best harbour on the island, consisting of a bay (King Edward Cove) within a bay (Cumberland East Bay). The site is quite sheltered, provides a substantial area of flat land suitable for building, and has a good supply of fresh water. It is about 1,400km from the Falkland Islands.

 

Currently nine BAS personnel overwinter at the KEP station, rising to around 18 in summer. Two Government Officers plus partners are stationed on KEP, overlapping by about three months during the busy winter fishing season. Summer staff from the Museum at Grytviken are also accommodated at KEP.

 

The continued occupation of the station serves a political purpose as well: it helps to maintain British sovereignty against Argentina's claim for ownership of the territory.

 

The chief activities of the station are applied fisheries research on behalf of the GSGSSI, to assist its policies for sustainable management of the commercial fishery, and to provide logistic support for the Government Officer(s). (wikipedia)

 

KEP is in the foreground, where the buildings mark the British Antarctic Survey base, while Grytvikan whaling station is in the background. The steeple of the Whalers Church is visible over the buildings. The Boss's grave is out of picture on the left.

Some info on the company:

"From The Sea – Our Fleet

At the Dock

 

Our fleet usually has a crew of 5-7 fishermen including the captain and most work a “trip” of 7-9 days harvesting scallops. The long liners spend 7-10 days harvesting swordfish & tuna, and 2-4 days of harvesting for our lobster and crab vessels. Our fleet is constantly being maintained to have the latest safety equipment to ensure that out crew works in the safest environment. Our “sea” team consist of over 100 dedicated and experienced fishermen, most following in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers!

 

Our fleet has modern handling and storage facilities; in fact we outfitted our scallop shucking rooms with climate control to manage the heat of the long summer days, thus increasing the quality of the scallops.

 

Our fleet works in complete association with NOAA and the National Marine Fisheries harvest the catch in the required areas to ensure the future of this natural resource. We track our fleet from the moment they leave the dock to the moment they tie up on the return.

 

A number of our fleet is outfitted with freezers. These vessels hand shuck, grade and pack fresh scallops and immediately freeze them on the boat. Truly one of the best tasting scallops, we are able to offer traceability to the vessel, location and date of harvest.

This replica lighthouse is in the town of Pictou and modeled after the historic Caribou Lighthouse that once stood on a nearby point. It is the home of one of the largest collections of lighthouse information and memorabilia in Canada.

 

It is also the home of the Northumberland Fisheries Museum. Contains the Irwin Collection of over 18,000 photos and 20 years of research and artifacts.

 

The Micky See (not sure of spelling) being raised after sinking at her mooring. See three images of this vessel after she was pumped dry. I understand she is the subject of Insurance claims and counter claims after she was leased and her 'carer' let her sink - somehow. The owner is obviously not too pleased. At this time, I am unable to find any more information & I am not even sure the name I was given by the Coast Guard is her correct name. Google has nothing nor do all local newspapers. She exists, she sank, she is now re-floated and the rest is speculation. Local businesses if they do know will not share...A mystery indeed! via 500px ift.tt/2wqnRxH

Norwegian Fisheries Museum is a seaside warehouse from 1730, which has been used as a store for stockfish, cod liver oil, and much more.

 

There are a multitude of rooms, galleries and staircases, with log timber walls and sloping floors.

 

Here one can experience a Bergen stockfish warehouse in its original form, with many fine details. The exhibitions tells the story of the wharf around Sandvikstorget. The various rooms contain temporary exhibitions about notching and building handwork, wall paintings from the 1700s, and the goods that once were stored in the warehouse â stockfish and herring. Here you will also find an exhibition about the motor brand Sabb from Laksevåg in Bergen, the all-time bestseller in Norway.

This is a day trip and as many know I try to tell the story....

For over 100 years, Fox Point has been a fishing centre. Fox Point’s fishery was diverse, with catches of tuna, lobster, mackerel, haddock, cod and swordfish.

 

Today, Fox Point’s fishing fleet centers on the lobster, mackerel and tuna fisheries.

Trinity has been a viable North Atlantic community for hundreds of years. Its defensible harbour, with abundant room for the ships of the day and shores well suited for outbuildings, wharves and fish-flakes, made it ideal for the early migratory fishery. Later, merchants from Poole, England, made Trinity the base for a new-world fishery.

 

During the 1720's Trinity was home to about 30 permanent families and host to 200-300 seasonal fishermen per year. By 1869, the population peaked at more than 800 people.

 

The preservation of Trinity's cultural and built heritage has made it perhaps the most notable "heritage community" in the province. Sustainable growth in existing and new businesses, including theatre, is clearly evident as Trinitarians, along with residents of the surrounding communities, play host to thousands of visitors per year.

Fireworks, to end off another wonderful festival! One thing I find difficult about where I took my fireworks photos is that the boat house in the front is on a slant, so it kind of still looks slanted to me, despite the rest of the harbour in the back being straight hahhah. Maybe it's just me, though.

Excerpt from www.hiddennewfoundland.ca:

 

The Brigus Tunnel is a surprising reminder of the impact that the Labrador fishery and seal hunt had on the community of Brigus. The historic town is littered with reminders of what life was like hundreds of years ago and is known for its large number of heritage buildings and picturesque gardens. But the most notable historic site in the town is a large tunnel cut through solid bedrock near the harbour front. To many people’s surprise the tunnel is an artifact of the Labrador fishery in which many of the town’s inhabitants once participated.

 

The tunnel was built for the famous Captain Abram Bartlett. Bartlett frequently made trips to Labrador to partake in the summer fishery but due to an overcrowded harbour would often have trouble finding a dock to unload his catch. After purchasing a larger ship, his previous berth at Riverhead was no longer usable. The only remaining suitable deep water berth nearby was in Brigus Harbour. Brigus' sheltered and deep water harbour was ideal for holding large ships but finding a place to dock a ship was often difficult due to surrounding cliffs. A tunnel through the ridge would give Bartlett access to his ship and allow for easy offloading of the catch.

 

Bartlett immediately purchased a section of land near the ridge and hired the help of Cornish miner John Hoskins. Hoskins began construction of the tunnel around 1860. John Hoskins was a professional who had previously been employed at the Tilt Cove Copper Mines on the Baie Verte Peninsula [Virtual Museum]. The roughly 80 foot long tunnel was constructed by hand drilling holes into the rock in which gunpowder would be placed. In order to keep the drill bits sharp a special forge was constructed near the tunnel site. The tunnel is reported to have taken around four months of continuous work to complete. The tunnel measured eight and a half feet high and about eight feet wide allowing wheel barrows, wagons and even horse and carriages to access the wharf on the other side. The tunnel was used until around 1910.

 

Today the tunnel is accessible by anyone who wishes to venture through. The tunnel is located near the waterfront behind St. Georges Heritage Church near the Bartlett Memorial.

Excerpt from www.historicplaces.ca:

 

Description of Historic Place

 

Ryan Premises National Historic Site of Canada is a cultural landscape associated with the fishery. It consists of domestic and commercial structures typical of a 19th-century Newfoundland mercantile complex in their original setting by the sea, adjacent to the intersection of Ryan’s Hill and Old Catalina Road, in Bonavista.

 

Heritage Value

 

Ryan Premises was designated a national historic site of Canada in 1987 because:

- it was the site which best combined thematic associations with Canada’s Atlantic fisheries with extant resources;

- the Ryans, whose headquarters it was, were deeply involved in the whole range of the fisheries over a long time period;

- the richness of the fisheries-related resources in the community of Bonavista contributes to its overwhelming sense of history.

 

The heritage value of Ryan Premises lies in its long association with the Atlantic fishery and in its related physical resources, including the buildings in their setting in the historic community of Bonavista. The Ryan’s company was established in Bonavista in 1857 as James Ryan. Over the years, the company expanded its activities to King’s Cove (1874, as James Ryan and Company) and Trinity (1906, as Ryan Brothers) to accommodate the Labrador fishery. The company continued to engage in the salt fishery until 1978. It is now operated as a historic site open to the public.

 

Character-Defining Elements

 

Key elements contributing to the heritage value of the site include:

- the setting of the complex in the historic town of Bonavista;

- the relationship of the built resources to each other and to the harbour;

- the profile and layout of the complex;

- the size and completeness of the complex as a typical Newfoundland mercantile outport fisheries station, particularly the diverse functions of the buildings including a Retail Shop, a Retail Store, Fish Store, Salt Store, Proprietor’s House, Carriage House, and Tenement House;

- the individual buildings with their rectangular massing, relatively large scale and pitched roofs, minimal detailing in response to functional requirements (varied only in the addition of a verandah and more elaborate chimney on the Proprietor’s House), use of traditional materials such as stone foundations, clapboard siding, shingle roofs, surviving evidence of their early interior layouts and original materials;

- the integrity, composition and presence of man-made landscape features and archaeological remnants such as garden remnants, fences, wharfs, cribbing, roads, pathways, and buildings like the fish flake, sawmill, barns, garage, telegraph office, powder magazine;

- the integrity, composition and presence of natural landscape features such as the pebble beach, the shore, indigenous vegetation;

- the integrity, composition and presence of moveable features associated with the complex including surviving domestic furnishings, retail merchandise, retail furnishings and equipment, fish processing equipment such as ropes, scales, weights, blocks, tools, fish bars and barrels;

This DSLR version is actually less successful than the one I took with my iPhone 5. In-phone HDR + VSCOcam can make a pretty mean team, and Aperture's filters can sometimes leave one wanting.

 

In any case, this was a reasonably large series of wharves on the way to Cape Forchu, on the Yarmouth Bar that juts out ever so slightly into the Atlantic. As with all my other Yarmouth destinations that day, it was utterly overwhelmed by fog. I tried to make the best of it and, combined with B&W processing, I think some of them convey a mood.

This Is shot is taken on the small crafts wharf on Change Islands NL, this would be the first time i had ever visited the island and it was a great experience and proved to be pretty educational, there is just 1 community on the island, which now contains about just 250 ppl, like a lot of Newfoundland communities in its heyday Change Island relied on Fishing for the vast majority of its local economy, unfortunately due to a terrible storm of circumstances the fishery as we all know is in hard shape, and this lovely island is suffering because of it, I just cant imagine, I had fish and chips at the one restaurant on the island, which was awesome by the way, and the lady that runs it was explaining to us that this year there was just 2 students graduaating, really pretty sad, and I thought this photo of the wharf so full on such a beautiful day at the end of June was a good testament to how much Newfoundland has changed, and in parts of Newfoundland like this one, the changes are certainly not for the better.
