Red Bay, Labrador, Canada

2018 HAL Voyage of the Vikings

We have never been to Red Bay, Labrador and were looking forward to seeing a town whose population would increase nearly 10-fold as soon as the ship’s passengers disembarked for the day!  Alas, that was not to be.  Patchy but worsening fog posed a danger to tender operation and threatened to delay our onward progress.  The port-of-call was cancelled as we lay anchored off the coast and with the tenders already in the water.

Our stop in Red Bay was canceled due to fog and deteriorating weather conditions. We had already dropped anchor and deployed the tenders. The tenders returned. The anchor came up. We are on our way to Paamiut, Greenland.

I'm quite sure this is a quaint and charming town.  Sorry to miss it.

No doubt, that was good decision!
