Just a Little Puzzle.

Just a Little Puzzle.

OK, just a little puzzel? This is the puzzle from Sunday's blog.

The idea was to come up with the name of the town "where the title of these blogs comes from,... figure out the name of the 'little mill town'."

All the clues are in the first sentence "Long ago and far away on the western shore of an eastern island province there was a little mill town."

And you are given this hint: "Of course using goggle is allowed."

I did make one error. I should have said 'google maps" specifically.

 

So use google maps look at the eastern provinces.

Where? Canada, the USA doesn't have provinces.

So use google maps.

Scan those eastern provinces that have western coasts. There are't that many. Especially island provinces.

I'll give you another clue: Look for a place at the head off the deepest bay (longest) you've ever seen.

I don’t know, but I sure had fun reading all the interesting names: Blow Me Down Provincial Park, Black Duck Siding, Black Duck Cove, Nameless Cove, Mistaken Cove, Lonesome Cove, River of Ponds Lake (is it a river, a pond, or a lake?), Burnt Cape Park Reserve, Burnt Village, Stuckless Cove.

Good luck Dan.

You're in the right area Russel, somewhere between Black Duck and River of Ponds. You'll find no limit to the interesting place names there. It relates to the sense of humour of the people who settled there.

OK Tom you asked for it:

A place where I once worked. A native settlement. North of the Arctic circle. It's named after an explorer but is not on a pond

Your quite the traveller, spend any time in warmer climates Robert?

I don't know where you were employed, but my guess is Pond Inlet, Nunavut, Canada.

You got it again Tom, Good job.

I worked for a Montreal based contractor bidding on government jobs in the NWT.

Here the job was removal and disposal of Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation (UFFI) from the school building and re-insulating with fiberglass. It took 4.5 months.

Your turn !
