Description : This is one of seven panels that were erected to commemerate the tidal wave that struck the Burin Peninsula in 1929. These panels are located at various communities along the Burin Peninsula which were affected by the tidal waves. This panel depicts two hands touching in the water with moonlight shining overhead. This is signifigant because the first tidal wave hit on moonlight night. This panel is located in Port au Gaul.
Commentaires : The text on the panel reads, "On November 18, 1929, an earthquake occurred under the Atlantic Ocean, about 250 km off of the coast.The quake triggered three waves, or tsunami, that struck these shores around 7:30 pm. Miraculously, three year old Magdelen Walsh, her father, cousin and Grandmother all escaped unharmed. Others were not as fortunate. 28 lives were lost.It remains the worst earthquake in Canadian history." "The first one hit without warning. The second followed close behind. Each arrived with a roar and struck with a force that rocked the family home. The sea surged in. It rose through the floor board beneath them.If rained down from the ceiling above, drenching them all in an icy mix of saltwater and seaweed, sand, chaff, and mud. Hand in hand they waded, out the door and into the night. At the crest of the hill, they turned and saw the third. It was a wall of water, so high some later claimed it blotted out the stars. Onward it rolled and Father began to pray. Then Grandmother stepped forward. With a straight back and steady hand, she lifted her fingers. And in the narrowing space between her and that wave, she traced the sign of the cross.
