Photo #1 looks south along the coast from the pull-off just north of Terre-Noire (there are two pull-offs with good views south of Cap-le-Moine, this large one just across the boundary line between Cap-le-Moine and Terre-Noire and a smaller one further north before the village at Cap-le-Moine; each has its own merits, but the large one is by far the most popular). In this view, the distinctive shape of Sight Point and the Cape Mabou Highlands are seen in the far distance at the left; Margaree Island is at the far right. The point about a quarter of the way in from the left in the middle distance is MacKays Cape, another vantage point with superb views in all directions; I often stop there in the summer time, sometimes taking a picnic lunch to eat while I sit in the grass-covered field at the top of the cape. Between it and the far left of the photo is the popular summer-time sand beach at Whale Cove, seen in its winter colours in photo #2 from the Shore Road directly above. No swimmers enjoying the water and the beach this day!
There appears to be a good deal of open water to the south in the top view, but the bottom view shows that there is good ice cover well out from shore beyond Whale Cove, which is well north of Margaree Island. Notice too the ice floes directly off the look-off; it is not clear whether they were in the process of forming or had just recently broken up.
