Home in the Bay

Plenty repairs to do by Leonard Norville.

Life in the tiny fishing village of Consett Bay in St. John has been described as very quiet by a 73-year-old retired fisherman, who walks there from his New Castle home and back every day.

It’s a two mile trek for Oscar Gibson, who once lived in Consett Bay.

The quaint sea side inlet, carries a kind of lure and charm that is irresistible, particularly to those folk who make their living from the ocean or once did so.

Visitors are also made to feel at home by the simple, but smiling and friendly residents. They can also be assured of an earful regarding the fishing industry, boat building and the challenges and accomplishments of doing business at sea – and on land. (EJ)
