(The entire Province is an island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence)
Sandland was conceived in 2007, when these photos were taken Sponsored by Northumberland Ferries, they were created by local craftsmen from tons of island sand mixed with water, allowed to harden, and then sculpted into amazingly detailed figures.

The province has always been famous for it’s potatoes, and this work in progress shows a potato-grading operation, with bags of “spuds” at thr right, and the workers sorting and grading on the table. By the way, natives of the Province have long been affectionately known as “spud-islanders”.
