Isle aux Morts
If the hair on the back of your neck prickles, or a shiver runs down your spine, when you visit Isle aux Morts, don’t worry. The French called it Deadman’s Island; the locals say Island of the Dead. Either way the name reflects the many ships wrecked on these shores. The Harvey Trail honours the family that rescued 163 people in 1828 by stringing a lifeline from the distressed ship to the shore with the help of their Newfoundland dog, as well as the 55-member crew of another ship in 1838.
