Skipper Dan’s Fishing Shed - Quidi Vidi Village, Newfoundland
Located on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada, picturesque Quidi Vidi Village is a popular destination for tourists and local photographers. The fishing sheds and stages located under the cliffs of the "gut" are Quidi Vidi icons. During my stay in Quidi Vidi I randomly made friends with a local man named "Smitty" and he took me to the famous red 2 story shed to meet the owner "Skipper Dan". We told stories, drank Dominion Ale beer, enjoyed the wood stove and the stunning views of seaside village. It was a day to remember! In closure, if visiting Newfoundland and Labrador, don't be shy to strike up a conversation with the locals. The older fishermen love telling their tales of the sea - which to me is always a special memorable experience.
Additionally, the shed was used as a film set for locally filmed TV show Hudson and Rex. The episode is called “Flare of the Dog”.
