Photo #1 was taken as we rounded Cape St Lawrence on the trip south; the sun was still out, but the skies were clouding up. It is a bit difficult to make out clearly here, but the tip of the cape is protruding into the water just right of centre. The mountain in the distance is unnamed and lies southwest of and on a line with Bear Hill, joined to it by the col at the left over which the Cape St Lawrence Trail passes. Two hikers and a dog are resting from their hike from Meat Cove to the Cape on the cliff above; when the squall line reached them a while later, they had to take shelter under the trees closest to them.
Photo #2 is a telephoto view of the tip of Cape St Lawrence, the northernmost point of Cape Breton Island (Northeast Point on St Paul Island is the northernmost point in Nova Scotia). The rocks seen here are definitely of the same kind as those seen previously on the northern shore, layered and with mixed red and grey/slate layers.
Photo #3 is a telephoto view taken from off the mouth of French Brook looking east of northeast towards the tip of Cape St Lawrence as we were returning to Bay St Lawrence. The topographical map gives the height of the land adjacent to the automated light as 20 m (65 ft) and the cliff face to the left of the light has already been seen.
Photo #4 is another telephoto view which shows more of the terrain ascending at the upper left along the ridge leading to Bear Hill and more of the coast, with another inaccessible gravel beach at the right. Inland of the tip, many piles of rocks are to be seen and others are just strewn about as if by the hand of a giant throwing sand.
Photo #5 is a telephoto view showing the remains of a building on the edge of Cape St Lawrence. A view of this same building taken in 2006 appears here. The lower gravel flanks of Bear Hill span the right half of the photo and, thanks to the magic of the telephoto lens, appear far closer than they are in fact. The Meat Cove Community Centre in 2012 had on display several photos from Cape St Lawrence dating from the time when it was still inhabited, showing the school house and two different lighthouses. In one of the latter photos, other buildings, likely houses, can also be seen. Ruins of those buildings remain on this site.
As best as I can determine, the first manned lighthouse was built at Cape St Lawrence in 1889. According to this web page, which has a photo of one of the lighthouses, the lighthouse “had two lights, 42 feet apart vertically. […]. The lower light, equipped with a seventh order lens, was shown from a bay window on the lower floor of the building, at a focal height of 95 feet, and had a nominal range of 15 miles.”
