    Chéticamp Island

    Ch��ticamp Island

    We drove to the end of the road on Chéticamp Island. A good part of the island is a loose cattle range. There is a fenced lighthouse on a bluff at the end of the road -- I wasn't sure whether the fence was to keep the cows out or the tourists out.

    As it was late in the day (note the long shadow) we never got to try out the island's hikes -- or even see the west (seaward) side of the island. We read that the hikes are quite scenic. This photo is easterly -- you can see the town of Chéticamp beyond the bay.

    St-Pierre Beach

    Beached Pilot Whale

    Just south of Chéticamp is St. Pierre Beach. We continued our tour of NS beaches - spending a couple of hours barefoot walking at the edge of the sea.

    We came across this poor whale. It did not move, so we assumed it had expired. I read on a website that autopsies are done on beached whales -- I wondered what would become of this one.

    This beach was by the road to Chéticamp Island. We continued exploring the island.
