Winter Harbour Panorama
1 of 54 from Winter Harbour To Brooks Peninsula


This is three shots and Hugin. This is a 4:1 ratio pano (I prefer 3:1) but I didn't take enough vertical.

Hi John.. I was just going to tell you I enjoyed your website so much .. it was forwarded to me as information from another one of the pioneers of Winter Harbour .. I am one of 17 children that grew up in Winter Harbour in the 1940s and our parents of 17 families actually were the real pioneers of the Harbour.. 4 years ago we had a reunion and we all went back to the Harbour where they built the newly finished walkway just 4 days before we arrived - the News people were there to interview and we all had a grand time. I have many pictures from our reunion but the best pictures are of what I took in the mid 1940s when I was only 9 and had a box camera that only took 8 pictures.. (at waist level I might add) .. anyway., I really enjoyed seeing through your eyes the Harbour and Open Bay again .. thank you .. Noni B.

Hi john, I appreciate the photo of Winter Harbour. Noni Baanstra (Ochs) passed it along. I was one of the children who grew up in W.H. My grandparents built the home that is now the B&B My parents and three of my dad's brothers & their family's formed much of the population that allowed for a vibrant community complete with store,school and community hall. My dad was instrumental in starting the fisherman's Co Op Noni was a big help in contacting the W.H. folk to attend the Reunion. We managed to gather about 60 people at Kluxewe campsite near Pt. McNeal for a pot-luck dinner, West Coast style (lots of smoked & BBQ salmon). A picnic to Winter Harbour was part of the weekend. Visiting, walking the boardwalk, and picture taking made for a pleasant day. Some of us stayed and camped for a few more days near San Jose Bay. A hike out to Open Bay (Grant Bay) was enjoyed. Thanks Evie
