At the bend in the road you can turn right toward Murray Harbour
North, another small fishing wharf. This is a pretty area with
a view of the Seal Islands and mussel leases in the bay. On
your way back to the main road, you should stop and admire this
private historic home, known as the "Clow"

If you want to stretch your legs, turn at the big red house and take the side road to Poverty Beach. Poverty Beach is a large sandbar and was probably given its name because its the lack of vegetation..

Remember, we told you to wait to buy a lobster trap? Now is the time to buy a souvenir lobster trap - this is the best price on the Island. Just help yourself and leave your money in the white bucket. If you bought one at the last place.....we can only say, we told you to wait!

Wendall Graham Inc. operates a seafood processing plant at
this tiny harbour, known as Graham Creek (probably named after
Wm. Graham who lived here at the time of the Census of 1798).
The best place to view the boats
is from the other side of the harbour. Drive back to the main
road and around the harbour. This harbour has a narrow seaway
protecting both sides of the entrance from the encroachment
of the sandy beaches located on both sides. Look out for the
many Great Blue Herons which feed in the shallows.
