My trips to Nova Scotia have started by taking ferries from both Portland and Bar Harbor across the Gulf of Maine to Yarmouth
on the west coast of Nova Scotia.
The entrance to Yarmouth harbor begins with a spectacular view of the Light at Cape Forchu
, which juts out into the sea on a small rocky island.
As you'll see in one of my images, the island is connected to the mainland by a very small strip of land with a bridge
, containing structures that looks very precarious against the sea.
If you read the history of the light, you'll discover that an angry sea has sometimes swept right through the keeper's house, and also swept unfortunate souls to their demise.
These images come from all over the Province, with some from the famous Peggy's Cove Light
, and some from not-so-famous locations, like Port Bickerton
