If these shores could talk…  

Through Dawn Williams’ lens, we travel to Bonavista, N.L. 

Dawn titles her amazing photos and this one is called HUSK.  

Very fitting since it shows the remaining shell of what used to be a boat and a "fish flake" - the elevated structure.  Years ago, Newfoundland fishermen used to dry salted cod on the flake. Dawn and her fiance, Frank, came across these structures while searching for icebergs.
