L'Anse Au Loup

Biggest town in the Labrador's Straits of belle Isle region!
If you want to shop in Labrador i guess this is where you will find all the necessities as well as the school , hockey arena, car dealers, fish plant,,,,etc..

Capstan Island

A capstan is a sturdy wooden post and handle, mounted in a stabilizing frame, used to wind-in a rope or cable.
Around 1851 residents began sealing in this area. A large capstan was placed on the small island just offshore from today's community, and a seal net attached to it. When harp seals migrated along the shore in spring the net "box" trapped them.
