The Moravian mission site

This was as far north as I got in 1999. It had been my goal to see this mission and I just made it before having to turn south

The mission site was abandoned in 1959 when the Government decided it could no longer provide support.

I anchored just north of the northern Dog Island. I was told it is possible to get closer in between the islands but it looked very shallow to me. The wharf shown on chart 4765 does not exist.

The mission building is still in reasonable condition and there had been some work done to stabilize it. I understand that since I visited in 1999 more restoration work has been done and even cruise ships visit

You can still see remains of garden frames against the building facing south.

A Caribou herd had taken over one of the buildings as a barn. I got quite a fright because I hadn't seen any Caribou until I approached the door and then nearly got trampled as they stampeded out.

The Caribou wander between the buildings

I imagine it is the grass which attracts the herd to the site. It looked like good grazing
