The views on this page were also taken from the Post Office in Grand-Étang. The larger one shows the bight of the Gulf of St Lawrence formed by the sand beach (La Plage St-Pierre) and sand dunes that connect Chéticamp Island to Cape Breton Island; if you find it hard to see this low land bridge separating the Gulf of St Lawrence and Chéticamp in this view, have a look at the view of La Pointe from Mountain Road on the previous page of this essay, where its outline is easy to see. The northern end of Chéticamp Island is about a third of the way in from the left. The village of Chéticamp, again with L’Église-St-Pierre dominating, is in the centre. The shore line at the right in the distance is at Point Cross. The ice-covered breakwater with a light sticking up at its end sits in the foreground and marks the entrance to Grand-Étang Harbour; the open water can here be seen to extend on both sides of the breakwater.
Photo #2 looks futher to the right towards the Highlands, in a view seen previously from the closer vantage point of le Chemin Cormier; notice again that La Grande Falaise is easily visible from Grand-Étang. The black roof in the foreground is that of Le Centre de la Mi-Carême, opened in 2009 May. I was, of course, much too early for this year’s mid-Lenten festivities (celebrated in 2011 from 27 March through 2 April), but some year I would love to attend this marvellous traditional Acadian celebration.
