  Ship Wreck Remains Along Beach
by jamiesno
 
 

In the Labrador Straits region you will find the second tallest lighthouse in North America, the tallest in Atlantic Canada.

Just down a short trail from the lighthouse you will also find out why the lighthouse has been so important over the years and the remains of the HMS Lily and HMS Raleigh remain on the beach.

For a number of years the water in the area still contained explosive materials, in 2003 the Canadian Military properly dispossed of this remaining material.

I provided a web site link where you can learn more about the history of these disasters. I hope you enjoy this walk back in time. It is a great place to walk on the beach.

Be sure to rate my tips and leave your comments!!! All the best.
