Conception Harbour, Newfoundland

Conception-Harbour-HeaderI know what you’re thinking with regards to the name Conception Harbour, especially if you have your mind in the gutter. Newfoundland has always been known to have unusual names for the towns. Cow Head, Dildo, Nameless Cove, Bacon Cove, Come By Chance, Tickle Cove, and Joe Batt’s Arm to name a few. I would’ve loved the chance to be back in the day to have an opinion on naming these little towns, I’d totally take credit for naming a little place BACON Cove. Seriously.

Today I’m taking you through Conception Harbour, a town of 800+ people in the heart of Conception Bay.CHarbour-NFLD

Fishing-Boat-NLWhile I was in Newfoundland, my Mom her friend and I took off for an afternoon excursion and ended up here. We thought the harbour looked beautiful, so all three of us jumped out of the car and thought, hey these would make some pretty gorgeous photos. We took our time, snapping pictures of the ducks floating along, talking about the red house on the water, and wondering to ourselves if anyone lived in that abandoned looking cabin. That was, until someone peered out the window next door, to have a nosey peek at what we were taking pictures of. Oops!

Have you ever travelled to Canada? If so, how far East have you gone?

  1. Gorgeous pictures! I love finding little towns like this. I’ve been as far east in Canada as you can go–to PEI–and it was absolutely breathtaking. The only other providence that I’ve been to has been Nova Scotia, which I also thought was beautiful. I really want to see more of Canada!
